Lenten Bible Studies

Postby Dave Roberts » Wed Jan 31, 2018 10:22 am

I am working on a series to study the people of the stories surrounding Jesus' crucifixion for Wednesday night Bible studies. I wonder if any of you would add other questions to try to answer about each one of them. Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.

Lenten Bible Studies, 2018
Sycamore Baptist Church
Characters of our Lenten Story
February 21: "The Woman Who Anointed Jesus"
Matthew 26:1-13

February 28: "Judas Iscariot"
Matthew 26:14-15, 47-50; 27:3-10


March 7: "The Conspirators: Annas, Caiphas, and Pilate"
Matthew 26:1-5, 57-67; 27:11-14, 24-26


March 14: "The Women Who Watched"
Matthew 27:55-56;
John 19:25b-27

March 21: "Simon of Cyrene"
Matthew 27:32-37;
Mark 15:21-22

March 28: "Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus"
John 19:38-42


QUESTIONS FOR EACH STUDY

1. Who is this person?

2. What do we actually know about this person?

3. How does this person figure into the story of Christ's death and resurrection?

4. What is the significance of his/her/their actions?

5. Why is this person important for the church of today?

6. What one thing should we take with us from this story?

The English teacher in me would want to do a compare and contrast of Annas, Caiphas and Pilate, and Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. I don't know that there's enough material in the text to get into detail, but the first three would be an interesting comparison.

Thanks, Sandy. I like your idea. There are no carbon copies here.
