- chapter 12
- Ch. 1-4
- Ch. 5-10
- Ch. 11-16
When we looked at our overview of chapter 11, I suggested you considered how chapter 11 leads into chapter 12. Look at where Jesus is between 11,27 and 13,1-2.
How does 11,12-25 and 13,1-2 form a bracket around this whole passage? What we have seen in 11,12-25 might have alerted us to the background of all that is happening here.
Beginning with 11,27-33 which we have already read, look at the different groups who are addressed by Jesus in these verses. Is there a pattern? Where are the disciples?
Consider what is different after verse 34. Look for the word common to verses 35 and 38.
Then note how the two scenes 12,38-40 and 12,41-44 are connected.
Finally, we saw earlier how 13,1-2 concludes this part of the story.
Take a look now at my response response.
From our explorations, we can now read the chapter as follows. The fourth page includes the last four scenes in the Temple.
We can now move on to read the story of the tenants and the vineyard.
