Is Christ the Son of God?

Is Christ the Son of God?

Study of Luke 20:41-44

In this passage, Jesus is answering a question, perhaps asked by someone or maybe He just knew they would be wondering about it – ‘Why do people say the Christ is the Son of David?’

  1. Who is Jesus talking to in this passage?
  2. Is the question a genuine or rhetorical question? How can we know?
  3. In verse 42, it says ‘The Lord said to my Lord’. Who are these referring to? Are they the same person?
  4. Which enemies of God did David put ‘under God’s control’?
  5. Finally, I am asking the question that Jesus asks in the passage: David calls the Christ ‘Lord,’ so how can the Christ be his son?
