Importance of Forgiveness (Discussion Questions)

Categories: Gospel of Matthew

Read Matthew 18:21-22

  • Who asks Jesus how many times do we have to forgive someone?
  • What was Jesus' response? (70x7)
  • So can we get upset and not forgive after 490 times? (No, because when two "7's" are used together in the Bible, it means infinity. We have to forgive forever.)
  • What is the parable that follows this demand? (Matt 18:23-35)
  • Who was forgiven?
  • Why didn't he forgive?
  • Do you sometimes get forgiven by your parents and forget to forgive your friends or siblings?
