  1. How does the truth statement that salvation is by faith alone connect with the message of Luke 14:25-33?
  2. Please explain the three demands of Jesus in your own words (everyone should try). Luke 14:25-33 makes them very clear. Read the passage together again.
  3. What is the significance of the word “cannot” in the text? Why does Jesus emphasize that word?
  4. Is the word “disciple” synonymous with the term “Christian” in Luke 14-25-33? Explain.
  5. Take some time to find other texts in the Gospels that communicate a similar message from Jesus. Discuss how they compare to Luke 14:25-33. (I didn’t give the texts because I want you to dig.)
  6. How have the three demands of Jesus personally impacted your life? Which one is the most difficult for you?
  7. Can you be a disciple without being a Christian? Explain.
  8. Can you be a Christian without being a disciple? Explain.
