Questions to consider:
It’s interesting to see how the religious and political environment looked in Jesus’ day. What kind of people did Jesus spend the least and most time with? What do you think of Nicodemus’ comment “we are men God, it is not our custom to enter the red quarter”?
What did you think of how Matthew the tax collector and Simon Peter were portrayed?
What do you think about Nicodemus’ question, “What if we’re not seeing the whole picture?”? How do you think that will influence his perspective moving forward?
“I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, you are mine.” How can we remind ourselves of this truth and live it out practically?
The plan starts today! Join us! We’ll post each week’s plan here.
