Study Questions: The Resurrection huh, that’s crazy!

Reading: Luke 24:1-12

If you missed it, here's a link to the Sermon: The Only Hope  

  1. Why Does the resurrection matter? (c.f. Romans 4: 24&25; 1 Corinthians 15: 53-57) Spend some time discussing this.
  2. Why do you think the women had to go to the tomb - why didn't the angels save them the journey and meet them at home?
  3. Discuss verse 5. In particular consider a) how the women might have responded to this and b) how we might, "seek the living from among the dead" in our lives? 
  4. Discuss verses 6-8. What are the things we can learn from these verses for our lives?
  5. How did the women respond to what they saw, heard and experienced? How does this compare to the apostles response and what can we learn from this?
  6. There are countless people who need to hear the truth about the resurrection, what are you going to do about it?
  7. Spend some time in prayer for each other and for our church as a whole, that we may come more and more to live in obedience to Jesus Christ, and fulfil, in our time, Matthew 28: 19-20.
