Huddle // Shadows: Part 1
Huddle time is an opportunity for you to connect to each other and grow in faith. The below questions are just a resource for you to use or start from. Don’t feel like you have to use them all or rush through good discussion.
Bret put us in the time and place of Jesus disciples at the time of his death. He talked about how their hopes would have been totally smashed. Have you ever had something like that happen, where it seemed like God was doing something amazing and then it all came crashing down? Did that have any impact on your faith?
Read Luke 24:13-48
Why do you think they couldn’t recognize Jesus? How might the interaction have been different if they recognized him immediately?
When you think of Jesus being able to go back and show them all the things written about him in the Old Testament, what are some of the places you think are obvious in the Old Testament that picture Jesus? What are some that Jesus uses himself in the gospels (i.e. the snake on the pole in John 3)?
Looking back on your own life, has there ever been a time when you were going through something, good or bad, and it wasn’t until later that you recognized that God was at work in your life through that experience? How do you think God may be working in your life now through the things that are going on?
Between now and Christmas, what can we commit to as a group or team that will increase our engagement in scripture? How will we hold one another accountable?
