Greetings! Below you will find questions which reference the sermon preached on Sunday, June 16th, 2013 at The Park. Each week new questions are posted to track along with the sermons.
The book of Exodus is a great story of redemption, faith, and the sovereignty of God.
I encourage you to begin your group with a time of greeting and introductions. You may choose to reorder the questions below or to write your own. Work hard to facilitate discussion and avoid allowing yourself or another member to speak the entire hour. Ultimately we trust you with leading your group.
- What are some observations you had from this chapter?
- Were there any new insights you learned about the passage from the sermon?
- What theology was present in this chapter?
- What did you learn about God from reading this chapter?
- How do you interpret the response of the people to the ten commandments (20:18 & 19)? What is your typical response to the ten commandments? What part do they play in your daily life?
- What are some of the reasons for God giving his people the ten commandments (i.e. verse 20)? Which of those reasons still apply today?
- The ten commandments was the introduction of the Law to the people of God. This was so significant that it continued to be a part of even Jesus’ teachings. Read Matthew 19:16-22; how did Jesus interact with the law?
- Jesus sums up the entire law in Matthew chapter 22:37-40. How does this include each of the commandments given in chapter 20 of Exodus?
- Have you ever considered the 10 Commandments to be a wedding contract between God and His people? How does this context change your view of the love of God?
