Session 12

Church in a Brewery Week 12

Topic:  Dealing with Supernatural Claims in the Bible

Discussion Questions:

  1. Supernatural claims naturally make us feel uncomfortable.  What do you need in order to feel that the supernatural claims in the Bible might be reasonable?  (Examples:  Historical evidence, your own personal evidence checklist, etc).

2. Can you identify evidence to support any of the other supernatural events in the Bible?

3. Sometimes it seems as if supernatural events were more common during ancient times.  Why might this be?

4. Although Jesus is recorded to have performed many miracles (healings, driving out demons, multiplying food, etc) he stated in Mark 1:38 that he came for a different reason; to preach.  What do you make of this?
