FOCUS Lenten Bible Study

For Benefactors, Friends, Alumni, & Parishioners

Session 3 - March 8th - Abraham Part 1

Discussion Questions

  1. Which part of the Bible study stuck out to you?
  2. What kind of family did you grow up in (Trustee, Nuclear, Atomistic)? What are some traditions or activities you can do with your family, friends, and/or students to help live as part of the Trustee family of God?
  3. What does it mean that the Israelites were chosen by God for the sake of others? How might you have been “chosen” by God for the sake of others? Read Luke 12:48. What does it teach about the responsibilities of those, like you, who are chosen by God?
  4. What are the 3 promises that God gives Abraham? How do they foreshadow the rest of salvation history? (Bonus: give a Bible verse citation for each.) Can anyone in your group come up with a good mnemonic device (memory device) to remember the three covenants (e.g., a rhyme, silly song, etc.)?
