Discussion Questions

Discussion Questions:

1. How does your understanding of the Scriptures change when you see the theme of resurrection emphasized throughout God’s history with mankind?

2. How have you seen the presence of God turn death and/or defeat into victory and life in your own experiences?

3. In what ways have you seen the earth groan? How does Paul’s reference to childbirth in Romans 8 bring about a picture of victory instead of defeat?

4. How does exchanging the tabernacle for a permanent dwelling of the Temple help you understand your walk through this life towards your eternal inheritance? How does it call you to responsibility in your Christian walk because you are always a form of the house of God?

5. How does the Holy Spirit act as an engagement ring? How does this help you have confidence in the plan God has for your future, even when you face trials and challenges?

Discussion Questions:

1. Do you fear death? If so, why? If not, why not?

2. Do you agree with the statement that God has constantly offered us a way to life? How have you experienced this in your own life?

3. How have you seen God use even the most ugly things to bring about good? What does this tell you about the victory that is guaranteed to us through the gift of Jesus?

4. Describe what Paul meant when he said to live is Christ and to die is gain. How does his expectation to be with Jesus after death help you face your own mortality?

5. How does the illustration of the seed that both Jesus and Paul use help you understand better what awaits you on the other side of death?

Discussion Questions:

1. Why is the city of God not referred to in the writings of the Old Testament account of Abraham, but it is emphasized by the New Testament writers?

2. What reasons would there be for God to keep things a mystery at the beginning of the Old Testament? What was He getting mankind to focus upon?

3. How does Isaiah’s portrayal of a new heaven and new earth excite you about your future?

4. How is the confusion of the afterlife made clearer simply by clinging to Jesus?

5. In what ways are we sojourners in this world (like Abraham, Isaac & Jacob), with no real home during our physical lifetime? How does this help with the challenges we face?
