Palm Sunday: The Amazing, Courageous, Victorious Faith of the Palm-Sunday Jesus Parade!
Small Group Worksheet
1. Getting Started:
What did you find most interesting about the sermon this week? The most helpful, eye-opening, or troubling?
What has been the hardest part of the quarantine so far?
Have you been missing the fellowship of the church over these past few weeks? What have you missed the most? Did that surprise you?
2. Into the Bible:
Read 2 Peter 1:12-21
What is Peter’s goal in this letter, according to v. 12-15? What does he want to help his readers do? (Also, when in his life is he writing this letter?)
What does Peter want his readers to remember in verses 16-18? Which story is he referring to? (Cf. Matthew 17:5)
What does Peter want them to remember in verses 19-21?
How do these two categories—Peter’s experiences (v. 16-18) and the prophecies of Scripture (v. 19-21)—connect with the reasons the disciples celebrated on Palm Sunday?
3. Going Deeper
On Palm Sunday the disciples celebrated a victory they hadn’t experienced yet. What victories are you still waiting on? What uncertainties are you carrying that make it difficult to celebrate?
Do you have any experiences like Peter’s—moments when God healed, saved, or changed you? What happened?
How do those experiences help strengthen your faith? How can you use them to strengthen other people’s faith?
