Questions to dig deeper into this week’s topic:
Use them for group discussion or journal prompts for personal study.
1. This week Dion Garrett talked about the “anagnorisis” moment, the moment in a drama where a character’s real identity is revealed. What is your favorite “revelation” moment from a book or a movie? Think about what makes it so great.
2. When did Jesus first reveal himself to you in a personal way? How did it happen? OR if you’re still exploring Jesus, what do you think it would take to believe in Jesus as God in human flesh?
3. Jesus gave 7 “I AM” metaphors. Quickly read each (feel free to read before and after for context) and write down your personal takeaway of what each means to you.
a. The Bread of Life – John 6:35
b. The Light of the World – John 8:12
c. The Gate for the Sheep – John 10:7
d. The Good Shepherd – John 10:11
e. The Resurrection – John 11:25
f. The Way, Truth & Life – John 14:6
g. The True Vine – John 15:5
4. Every gospel contains a “Holy Week” account. While John’s contains some lengthy prayers and discourses, start at John 18 and read it through to the end. It should only take 5-10 minutes. Write down the whatever word or feeling best sums up your response to those chapters.
5. Jesus wants you to have life, now and forever! Pray to God and ask him to help you in your pursuit of a whole life.
