Questions for Life Groups
- Read the story of Palm Sunday in Mark 11:1-11. If you’re interested in how the other gospels describe what happened read Matthew 21:1-10, Luke 19:28-40, and John 12:12-19. Where would you be if you were in Jerusalem when Jesus arrived? Before you answer, remember that this was a huge festival with activities everywhere in the city. Were you a visitor or a resident? What were you expecting Jesus to do after He arrived?
- Read this week’s articles titled A new era. As Christians we believe that Jesus ushered in a new era in human history. What do you believe His arrival into Jerusalem was about? Imagine the governor arriving at the same time as Jesus, but on the other side of town. Where were you in question 1? Would you stand against the pressures to be there to welcome the governor and welcome Jesus instead? Are you committed to your beliefs?
- How can the members of your group help you this week and on-going to help you to be more receptive to hearing and understanding the Word of God? Pray for each other to have the Holy Spirit bless you with more courage.
