Discussion Questions

Sunday, Sept 26
Faith
Matthew 16:1-4

  • Do you love the picture on your ID? Did you ever get an ID photo that you hated?
  • Have you ever wished that God would give you a sign or do something to make Himself more obvious to you?
  • What do you think a sign from God might look like in 2021?
  • What is the biggest problem with demanding a sign from Jesus?
  • What does Jesus mean when He says in Matthew 16:3, “you know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times?”
  • Why does Jesus call his audience “adulterous?”
  • In verse 4, Jesus tells his audience that no sign will be given except “the sign of Jonah.” How does the story of Jonah connect to the story of Jesus?
  • Why is the resurrection of Jesus all we need in order to follow Him?
