Session 25

Church In A Brewery 01-04-2020

Topic:  Hope:  When is it time to give up?  Contrasting human perception vs. God’s perception

Scripture References:  Mark 5:1-43

Discussion questions:

  1.  Why do you think Jesus allowed the demons to enter the herd of pigs, which was probably someone else’s personal property?  What does this say about the value of hope?
  2. Compare and contrast:  Think of a situation that seems hopeless.  From a human perspective, when is it time to give up?  How might Jesus view that same situation?
  3. Do you think Jesus is advocating for blind faith?  Why or why not?
  4. Regarding the miracles in this chapter, what do you think Jesus’ motivation is?
