Discussion Questions - Re-read our passage from this week (Mark 16:1-8) and then with your Growth Group, family, friends, etc. thoughtfully answer the following:

1. What is your favorite Easter memory?

2. Is it critical to your faith that Jesus literally rose from the dead? Why or why not?

3. How does a strong belief in the Word of God enable us to live a life free from worry/alarm?

4. Can you relate to Peter – someone who has failed in their commitment to Christ? How do people with this experience have a greater experience of God’s grace?

5. There is a danger to our faith being too far on either extreme of “earthly focused” or “heavenly focused” . . . which to you tend to gravitate towards and why?

6. How does the belief in Jesus’ resurrection give you power and hope to live an extraordinary life now?

7. What’s your next step in response to this message?

GOSPEL OF MARK by Francis Chan

The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship. In this 11-part series on the Gospel of Mark, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?
