Greetings! Below you will find questions which reference the sermon preached on Sunday, July 28th, 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?
- We know that the Lord does not change in his basic integrity or character (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). What then do you make of His “repenting” in 32:14? Look at other similar passages to identify themes or reasoning (Amos 7:1-6; Jeremiah 18:3-11, Jonah 3:9-10; Deuteronomy 32:36, Judges 2:18, 2 Samuel 24:16, 1 Chronicles 21:15).
- In Exodus 34: 6-8 the Lord declares His name to Moses. What can we learn from God’s description of himself? Is there anything in there that surprises you?
- God sets up another covenant with the people in verse 34:10-17. Why? In this covenant both parties are responsible for some tasks. What was God’s promise? What did he ask the people to do, and why?
