John 20:24-31 CSB

Opener  

What is your favorite Easter memory?

 

 

Review

In the message this week, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged or confused you?

 

 

Going Deeper

 

Where on this continuum do you fall? Explain.

 

Feeler ———————————–I———————————– Thinker

 

In the message Sunday, Mark shared 4 potential sources of Thomas’ unbelief: temperament (feeler/thinker), fear, being “dug in” and hopeless-ness. Which of these presents the greatest hindrance to belief for you?

 

 

Read 1 Corinthians 15:1-11.

-In your own words, what is the essential content of the Gospel upon

which you have taken your stand? (v.1-4)

 

 

-How would you explain the importance (v.3) of Christ’s resurrection to

someone who does not yet believe?

 

 

-Why do you think Paul went into such detail listing who saw Jesus after

he was resurrected?

 

 

-What evidence do you see that Christ is alive in you, and that His grace

toward you “was not in vain?” (v.10)

 

 

 

Application

Restate the truth expressed in 1 Corinthians 15:20-22.  How does this reality motivate you to act, speak, or live differently?
