” S1 Episode 3: Abraham”
Questions for small groups S1 Episode 3: Abraham (Genesis 12-22) #LongStoryShort1.Recap the major movements in each chapter leading up to the call of Abraham in Genesis 12. Where does Abraham come from what seed or family line does he come from? Why is this significant?2.Look at Gen. 12:8. Bethel means “house of God” and Ai means “heap of ruin.” Why or why not is it significant for Abraham to pitch his tent and build an altar between the two? What New Testament connection can we find to Jesus through this?3a. Who is Melchizedek? Why is he being the King of Salem so important and especially as he is contrasted with King of Sodom? Genesis 14:183b. Check out other passages mentioning Melchizedek: Psalm 110:4 , Hebrew 7:1-10, 15, 17; Hebrews 5:6-10. How does this mysterious priest/King and his blessing on Abraham help us understand the story of the Bible and the purpose of Jesus’ coming? (Note: Melchizedek is one of the most complicated and debated figures in all of scripture but it’s good to stretch our understanding and rely on the Holy Spirit to help us understand).4.Compare our study of Abraham so far in Gen. 12-15 and 22 with Hebrews 11:8-19. How does the author of Hebrews help summarize and explain the significance of Father Abraham and his faith to us today?5.What does the usage of Hebrew word “hineni” or “here I am” in Genesis 22:1, 7, 11 communicate to you?

    Q1: Why do you think God has used the activity of sharing a meal to communicate his new covenant? What is God telling us about a meal like the Lord’s Supper and our relationship with God?

    Q1: What is your one takeaway from the sermon on Luke 21?
     
    Q2: Why would Jesus' words in Luke 21:6 be so shocking to Jews in the first century?
     
    Q3: How is Luke 21:9 actually encouraging to those who follow Jesus?
    What did it mean for those in the 1st century and what can we learn from this passage for us today?
     
    Q4: Luke 21:9 says they will be "put to death" but then in verse 18 it says, "not a hair of their head will
    perish." So what is Jesus talking about and what does he mean by this?
     
    Q5:  How can we read Luke 21 and actually stay calm and look up instead of fret and worry about these
    apocalyptic passages, talk of the "End Times" and the current state of our own nation?
     
    Q6: Nations rise and fall but what really will remain and last in the end? See 1 Corinthians 13:13 and how does this passage 
    inform our lifestyle today?
