Greetings! Below you will find questions which reference the sermon preached on Sunday, August 4th, 2013 at The Park. You can listen to the sermon audio for Exodus 34-35 here. 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?
- Read 2 Corinthians 3:12-16. How does this help you understand the significance of Moses covering his face with a veil from Exodus 34:33-35?
- Chapter 35 is the calling of the people to give gifts to God for him to use to accomplish his purposes. Verse 21 says that “everyone who was willing and whose heart moved him” brought their offering to God. How has God moved you to be generous with your possessions for His purposes? What is your level of willingness to act?
- In addition to giving material gifts, God calls people to use their specific talents and skills to serve him. Read 35:30-35. How can you use your skills to serve God? What unique gifts do you bring to the body of Christ?
- A theme in these chapters is the Lord reconciling with the people of Israel after they turned away from him in chapters 32-33. Throughout the Bible we see God seeking out his people to be reconciled to them, ultimately fulfilled in the cross (Romans 5:10). How have you personally experienced this reconciliation with God in your life? Is there anyone in your life with whom you need to be reconcilled?
