1.) read through Luke 8
2.) read Luke 6:20 until the end of the chapter. Pay close attention especially to 6:46ff, compare with 8:19-21. How does Jesus characterize those who listen to him and do what he says, in each chapter?
3.) looking at the first 8 chapters, list the geographical places Luke mentions. Is there any rhyme or reason to it? What is Luke telling his readers with the geographical references?
4.) be sure to go over the preceding chapters to remind yourself of where we've been.
