Study Questions - Judas Iscariot

If you missed it, here's a link to the Sermon A good beginning and a gruesome end
Read John 6: 47-70
  1. What do we know about Judas' background, who was his dad (John 6:71; 13:2,26), where did he come from (Iscariot means son of Kerioth (Joshua 15:20 & 25)
  2. Did God, programme Judas to fail and make him do what he did? Discuss (Psalm 41:9,109:5-8, Zechariah 11:12-13)
  3. Judas started off well, he was called to be an apostle, what went wrong?
  4. In the light of Judas' life we can see that sin is progressive. Discuss what Christians can and should learn from this today. (here's an illustration used in the sermon - Sin is progressive)
  5. Read 1 Corinthians 10:11-13 and discuss.

Next week we'll be taking a look at King Hezekiah - 2 Kings 18-20, 2 Chronicles 29-32 & Isaiah 36 - 39
