We’ve been reading this week about the resurrection of Jesus. There have been many revolutionaries throughout history, many powerful communicators, many sages and prophets. But Jesus’ resurrection put Him in a class all to Himself. The resurrection was more than the last big firework in an impressive display. It was confirmation of Jesus’ claims, His teachings and His pedigree. It is the period, the italics, the underline and the bold that Jesus is the Son of God and worthy of all that we have and all that we are.
Discuss with your small group what you’ve drawn from your reading this week and how God has spoken to you. Talk about how Jesus’ redemption answered and fixed what had been broken since the first sin by the first man. Be sure to note all that it implies for us that death has been defeated.
You can also pull from the daily questions and use the HEAR method as a structure for your discussion.
