Study

Note: There's alot of great content this week, so if you're pressed for time, know that it's ok to skip activities or questions - especially ones that might not resonate with your LIFEGroup as much!

 

5. On Sunday Pastor Weems gave a message on John 4:1-26 (The Woman at the Well). What are you going to take away from the passage, message or discussion?

 

6. For our LIFEGroup lesson, we're actually going to backtrack to John 3:1-21. You can read it, or there are a number of ways to watch the movie clip:

  • Netflix subscribers can stream it and go to 14:17 - 18:28.
  • iTunes users can purchase the HD Download ($22.99) and go to 14:37-18:48.
  • Amazon users can purchase the HD Download ($19.99) or order a DVD ($7.50) for next week.

 

7. Do you see any ways in which the passage is unpacking ideas from John 1:1-18?

 

8. What do you think the main point of the passage is?

 

9. Last week, we got a few ringers together and shot an awesome LIFEGroup discussion video on this passage. As you watch, feel free to pause and discuss as a group if you'd like to. Watch it: https://youtu.be/Lvcx-2FpulI 

 

9b. Why is it good to use the language of scripture? Check out Hebrews 4:12 and Romans 10:17.

 

10. Dig Deeper on Baptism. Refer to your People's Bible Commentary on John and discuss the commentary on John 3:4-6 (Pages 49 - 51).

 

10b. Didn't get enough discussion on Baptism? If you're brave, come back later to check out these resources for personal study:

- Baptism FAQ section on LCMS.org

Baptism in Luther's Large Catechism

 

11. If you're unfamiliar with the "lifted up the snake" reference, consult your People's Bible Commentary on John 3:14 (Page 53).

 

12. In the video, Pastor Drew leaves us with this question: What does it mean to live a life in the Spirit?Check out Galatians 5:13-26 and discuss.

 

Optional Worship Song

Take a few moments to sing "Jesus Messiah" (by Chris Tomlin) as a group. Be sure to turn up the volume so that less confident singers feel comfortable.
