The Glorious Restraint of Jesus

April 9, 2017 Speaker: Scott C. Jones Series: Easter 2017

Topic: Exposition Scripture: Mark 11:1–11:11

THE GLORIOUS RESTRAINT OF JESUS: MARK 11:1-11

     A Strange Arrival

     A Misguided Response

     Our Response

DISCIPLESHIP GROUP QUESTIONS

EQUIP

  • Read aloud the text from Sunday (Mark 11:1-11). What do you remember most from the teaching on Sunday? Discuss what stood out as you read through the passage this time.
  • As we prepare for Good Friday and Easter Sunday, discuss your past experience of “Holy Week.” Is there anything about this time that you find especially significant (for example, Good Friday service, something about Easter Sunday, a specific family tradition, etc.)? Why?

 

ENCOURAGE

  • Have you ever seen God withhold a perceived need in the short run in order to eventually give, do or produce in you something “better”? To use the language from Sunday, has Jesus ever led you to and beyond the cross? Explain.
  • What do you find most compelling about the leadership of Jesus? How would you personally describe why Jesus is a “better King”?

CHALLENGE

  • Consider ways in which you’ve been given responsibility, privilege or power in your own life. How might you more fully exercise Christlike restraint in these areas? Help each other in answering this question and then pray into these areas of growth.
