Going Deeper is designed for use with your small group, a friend or on you own. Its aim is to create time for you to spend with God and his word. Do as much or as little as you like. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact one of our pastoral staff.
3. Read John 2:1-11. Consider what each of the people in the account experienced – Jesus, His mother, the servants, the master of the feast, the disciples. How do you think they reacted to what they saw? Is there one with whom you most closely identify?
5. Why did Jesus use ceremonial jars as the means to change water into wine? Read Psalm 104:15 and Matthew 26:27-29. What does the water in the jars represent? What does this say about the temple rituals? What does the wine represent? How is this cleansing action active in your life?
6.Read Isa 54:5; 62:5; Eze 16:8-14; Hos 3:1-3; Eph 5:25-33. The language of marriage between God and his people is throughout the Bible. Is there anything that surprises you about this language? How might this change your view about God? About your relationship with others?
