Day 30 // Five questions

March 15, 2013

Today, we’ll read pages 334-350 from Mark.

Now that we’ve been at this for several weeks, you probably have a few small group sessions under your belt.  And you may be wondering… “What’s with these discussion questions?”

In case you haven’t been wondering this, here are the 5 questions we’re encouraging groups to discuss each week:

  • What’s something you noticed for the first time?
  • What questions did you have?
  • Was there anything that bothered you?
  • What did you learn about loving God?
  • What did you learn about loving others?

These questions are meant to help you think differently about Scripture.  They’re meant to encourage you to wrestle with the text.  After all, wrestling is part of what it means to engage the Bible.

So go ahead. Wrestle away. Think about what the text says and what implications it has for your life. Ask questions you may have never thought of before – or never thought you were allowed to ask.

Pages 334 – 350 from Mark

He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”
