Mark 9:2-13 - August 31st 2018

The Transfiguration

Review:

  1. What have we learned about Jesus identity from chapters 1-8?
  2. How has that been shown?
  3. How have people responded differently to Jesus?

Read Mark 9:2-13  (Also consider the immediate context - 8:27-9:1)

  1. Where did Jesus go and with whom?
  2. Is there anything significant about the setting?
  3. What happened at first? (v.2-5)
  4. Who else was there and what is significant about them?
  5. What did Peter say and why? What does it signify? 
  6. What happened next? (v. 7-8) (Consider the details Mark includes, is there anything significant about them?)

 

  1. As they come down from the mountain what does Jesus say? Do the disciples understand? Why?
  2. Who is Elijah? What was the expectation about him? How was it fulfilled? What happened to him? Who might this be referring to?

Application:

  1. What do we learn about Jesus' identity from this passage?
  2. What do we learn about Jesus' mission from this passage?
  3. In light of that how ought we to respond to Jesus?

 

Psalm 23 - July 6th 2018

The LORD is my shepherd

Read Psalm 23

  1. What does David teach us about God?
    1. What is God like? (Unpack the metaphor - what is a shepherd like? What do they do?)
    2. What does he do?
    3. Why does he do it?
  2. What do we learn about David?
    1. Where is he? (consider his situation(s), and what these poetic descriptions indicate)
    2. Where does God lead him?
    3. How does he feel?
  3. What is David's hope or confidence, and why?

Application:

  1. How does this apply to us since we are not David?
  2. How does David's hope become our hope?
  3. How does this point to/relate to Jesus Christ?
