Questions for Sunday morning's sermon, "He descended to the dead and on the third day rose again" (Luke 24:1-12).

  • Does Luke’s bias (being a Christian believer) mean we can’t totally trust what he records?
  • What is the strength of the argument that only Christ’s resurrection explains the change in the disciples and the rise of Christianity?
  • Why is it important that Jesus rose bodily from the dead?
  • Why is the message of the cross central to the Gospel and how does the resurrection relate to it?
  • How have you been transformed by this message? Can you think of other striking examples of such a transformation?

Questions for Sunday morning's sermon, 'He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried' - John 19:28-37

  • 1) How does the cross sum up humanity’s response to Jesus? Can you see this response in areas of your life?
  • 2) ‘Jesus drunk the cup that was reserved for us’ – what should this do to our attitude towards sin? 
  • 3) How does the death and burial of Jesus Christ prove the depth of God’s love for his people? How does his love change our hearts? 
  • 4) Why can we point people to the cross to see the glory of God demonstrated? How common is it for you to speak of the crucifixion, death and burial of Jesus to the unbelievers around you? 
  • 5) The cross demands our allegiance – how would the watching world know from our lives that we worship Jesus?

​Questions for Sunday morning's sermon 'I believe in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord...' Luke 1:26-38

  • In what ways do people (even Christians) in practice view Jesus as a kind of ‘superman’ or not quite a man but God in disguise? How should he be viewed?
  • Why do Christians worship Jesus? Why would this be wrong if he were simply a super-man?
  • How does the incarnation (that God became man without ceasing to be God) show that God is love?
  • If Jesus is not God as well as a man, how would this effect our understanding of the cross? Why is it necessary for our salvation for Jesus to be both God and man in one person?
  • What difference should this truth make to the way we think and live as believers?

The questions for our homegroups which help us to think about this morning's sermon from Luke 18:9-14 are:

  • 1) In what areas do we tend to be proud? How might we deal with them?
  • 2) If someone asked us ‘Does God always hear our prayers?’ what qualified answer might we give?
  • 3) What sort of things might keep us away from God? How does this parable help us to draw close to him?
  • 4) Which of the two kinds of ‘sinners’ described by Luther are we? What can we thank God for?
