O Jerusalem, Jerusalem�

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Matthew 23:13-39

Key verse 23:37

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.”

Read verses 13-32.  How many times did Jesus use the word “woe”?  What does the word “woe” mean?  Why would woe come upon the Pharisees and teachers of the law?  In what ways were they hypocritical and blind?

Read verses 33-36.  How would God try to help the Pharisees and teachers of the law?  How would they respond to God’s help?  What would be the final result?

Read verses 37-39.  What had Jesus wanted to do for the city of Jerusalem?  Why were they not willing?  What can we learn about them?  What can we learn about Jesus?  In what way was the house of Jerusalem left desolate?  What hope did they have to be restored?
