What stood out to you from Sunday and why?

Roger said that in our culture some don’t care if the resurrection is true, they want to know why they should care. Do you agree, disagree, and why?

 

Read 1 Cor 15:14 & 17.

  • What is the importance of the resurrection?

Read 1 Cor 15:1-8

  • What is Paul’s purpose for writing this section? (see v. 1)

  • What is “the gospel”, in your own words?

  • What does Paul mean by “according to what scriptures”?

  • In verse 6 Paul says that most of the 500 people who saw Jesus at one setting are still alive. Why is that important for the Corinthians to know?

  • Who did Jesus appear to? Is this list exhaustive?

Read Acts 10:41

  • Who got to see Jesus after His resurrection? (preselected people)

  • What is the relevance of “eating and drinking” with Jesus? (physical, not a ghost)

Other than proving that He was alive, what was accomplished in each of His resurrection appearances? Discuss. (In other words, what was accomplished with Mary Magdalene? With Thomas? With James? With Peter?)

  • What does this reveal about Jesus?

If Jesus were to appear to you today, what would He say to you? What would He help you overcome?
