Easter With Us.

Easter With Us.

Key Passage: 1 Chronicles 15:3-5

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

Getting Started

 

  • Talk about your favorite childhood memory of Easter.

  • What Easter traditions—religious or secular—do you currently observe? What meaning do they hold for you?

Study   

 

  • Read Mark 16:1-8 & Luke 24:9-12

  • Talk about the disappointment and discouragement Jesus’ closest followers would have experienced after His death.

  • What did they likely think/feel when they found the tomb empty?

  • What kept them from greater confidence 

  • Read I Cor 15:1-20

  • Is it easier for you to believe in Jesus’ teachings than in his resurrection? Why or why not?

  • Discuss the connection between Jesus’ resurrection and our faith. Do you agree with Paul’s assertion regarding the Christian faith’s dependence on the resurrection?  Why or Why not?

  • Read Matthew 7:13–14. How does Jesus’ statement in this passage relate to Paul’s teaching on the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15:14–20?

Reflect

 

  • If there was no resurrection, we should abandon all things Christian. But if Jesus did rise, he’s the only man in history who predicted his own death and resurrection and then pulled it off. He’s worth following.

  • If the resurrection is true, what does that mean for how we should see our current circumstances and how should it influence our expectations about the future?
