A study on Mark 15:22-39

If you missed the sermon on Mark 15:22-39, here it is:  A Gamers view of the crucifixion (or looking out with Jesus)

  1. Discuss the different people who were present at the crucifixion – what were they doing there, what motives might they have had, how did they respond on the day?
  2. Discuss your reaction to the crucifixion (look at all the gospel accounts and Psalm 22).
  3. In the sermon it was suggested that the crucifixion requires a response? Does it? If so, what is your response?
  4. We were challenged earlier in the service to encourage eachother with scriptures which have been helpful to us this year. Spend some time as a group doing this and consider learning a new scripture, together, each week.

    1. the words of Jesus prayer – what exactly did Jesus mean?

  3. What if anything surprises you about Jesus arrest?
  4. If Peter was willing to draw a sword and fight, what made all the disciples run away?
  5. What can we learn from this passage for our lives in the here and now in Ely?
