GETTING TO KNOW YOU:

Option A: Have you ever experienced a paralyzing fear?  

Option B: Click the PHOBIA button below for fun and share with the group a strange phobia you have.    

INTO THE BIBLE:

The word φοβέω (phobeō) has a broad semantic range in the scripture; however, the etymology of the word is followed through to the English to be a phobia, a paralyzing fear, an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. 

Q1 - One way to better understand a narrative is to put yourself in the story and ask questions.  Imagine the extreme fear of losing a child being realized, you had come to Jesus, and he was busy with another as your daughter died.  He turns to you and says, “do not fear, trust me”.  How do you think you would respond to Jesus? 

Q2 - Why do you think Jesus only allowed three of his disciples to come with him to raise Jairus daughter (Mark 5:37)?

 

Q3 - Click the I CORINTHIANS 15:12-19 button to read the passage.  Does Paul really mean that without the resurrection, all of our faith is useless?  What about the wrath of God poured out upon Jesus at the cross, why would that still not be valid? 

 

Q4 - In Paul’s day, and in ours, most attacks on Christianity will be against the historical evidence of Jesus and the Resurrection.  Click the BLOG button to read and then discuss.
