Want to get a little deeper into the study? Below are some questions and thoughts to consider based on the sermon message. Feel free to work through them on your own, as a family or in your small group. (Discussion questions for elementary-age kids can be found below.) If you have questions, please contact us.
In this passage, where was Jesus and what was he doing? Why is this significant to what was about to happen?
Why did the teachers of the law and the Pharisees bring this woman to Jesus? What were they hoping to do? (For further discussion, read Deuteronomy 22:22. Why didn’t the teachers of the law and the Pharisees also bring the man involved?)
What was Jesus’ immediate response? Why do you think he kept quiet? How did the Pharisees respond to Jesus’ silence?
Do you enjoy sitting in silence or do you struggle with silence? Why is it important to be still in the presence of God?
How do you think the woman felt when Jesus spoke to her in verses 10-11? What is your response to God’s kindness in your life?
