    "God Wrote A Book" - Human Agency

    24/04/2020 Duração: 39min

    "God Wrote A Book" - Human Agency 2 Peter 1:16-21 (ESV) 1. The Writers 2. The Scribes 3. The Fathers 1. Why did the early church make such a big deal about eyewitness testimony about Jesus (2 Peter 1:16-18; 1 John 1:1-3)? What is the value of their testimony (as recorded in the New Testament) for us today? Also, read Acts 4:13. What's the power of the statement that "they had been with Jesus"? 2. Read 1 Peter 1:8 and discuss how the eyewitness testimony contained in the New Testament makes the truth of that verse possible. 3. Is the Bible unique among all books ever written? If so, what makes it so unique and on what basis do we claim that it perfectly reveals the heart and mind of God? 4. According to Phil, scribes hand-copied the New Testament manuscripts for 1,400 years prior to the invention of the printing press. What are your thoughts about the claim that, in spite of numerous minor copying errors over those 1,400 years, we can be certain that over 99% of what we have in the New Testament is exactly w

    2 Timothy 3:14-16 (ESV) *If God Wrote a Book, What's the Evidence? --External Evidence --Internal Evidence --Eternal Evidence *If God Wrote a Book, Who's the Audience? Discussion Questions: 1. What is a high view of Scripture, and why is a high view of Scripture important? Why is it dangerous when people, churches, and denominations walk away from a high view of the Scripture? 2. How does the "internal evidence" that God wrote a book--i.e., amazing unity & cohesion and incredible prophetic accuracy--show us God's fingerprints on the Bible? 3. How does the "unity of the Scripture" affect the way we read the Bible? How does this help us to better understand God's heart and mind on any given issue or question? How does this help us to address apparent "contradictions" in the Bible? 4. How does the "eternal evidence" support the idea that God wrote a book? For example, read Hebrews 4:12 and discuss how the truth of this verse has been true in your life. 5. Where would you be today if the book that God wrote d

    1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 12-20, 50-58 1. The Resurrection FACT (vv. 1-8) 2. The Resurrection HOPE (vv. 12-20) 3. The Resurrection VICTORY (vv. 50-58) 1. What honest questions have you ever had about the resurrection? How has God given you confident faith that Jesus truly came out of the grave bodily and physically? 2. Read Romans 1:4. How did the resurrection validate everything that Jesus ever said and did? 3. Why would Paul say that if there's no resurrection, then we are "still in our sins"? Isn't that what the cross was supposed to take care of? So what is the relationship between the cross and the resurrection regarding forgiveness of sins? Read Romans 4:25 for additional insight. 4. Read Isaiah 25:6-8 and look at the phrase "the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations." What did Phil say about this, and how does the resurrection victory (as illustrated in Hebrews 2:14-15) address it? 5. How did Jesus absorb and defeat the "sting of death," and what were your thought

    John 12:1-21 Point #1 - Set the Pace for Adoring Jesus Point #2 - Teach Your Children About the Death of Jesus Point #3 - Don't Lose Sight of King Jesus Point #4 - Remember that Easter is All About People Coming to Jesus 1. In what way did Mary set the pace for adoring Jesus? Think about Luke 10:38-42 as well as John 12:1-6. How will you set the pace in your home for adoring Jesus? 2. Think about the picture of the people standing next to the cross with hammers and nails in their hands. What did Phil mean when he said, "You can't fully appreciate the power of the cross until you first connect yourself personally with the cross"? 3. Have you ever used "the bridge" illustration to share the good news about the cross with someone else? What happened? How could you use that illustration in the future? 4. Why is the Lord's Supper such a powerful reminder of the death of Jesus? Why is it so important to remember the death of Jesus? 5.

What do you think about Phil's statement when he said that Jesus is just as present in a Life Group gathering (in a living room or on-line) as he is when we have 800 people on campus for Sunday services? Why? What does it mean for our Life Groups in the days ahead? 2. Why does stress, anxiety, and fear make us want to "tap out" of active involvement in life, relationships, and fellowship? What stresses, anxieties, and fears are you currently facing? Be honest! 3. In what specific ways do you see yourself "working out" your salvation in the days ahead? Why is it important to do so? 4.
