Small Groups, and additional information.

Discussion Questions

October 17, 2021

Reflect

  • Why do we value being on a first name basis in America?
  • What are the benefits of emphasizing a personal relationship with God? What are the dangers of assuming a familiarity with God?
  • How have you typically understood Genesis 2:4-17?  What has your eye typically gravitated to seeing in Genesis 2:4-17? To the dignity of work? To the creation of man and woman? To the prohibition? To curiosity regarding the Tree of Life?
  • In Genesis 1-2 we read about God’s creating a place to dwell with humanity made in his image. How does God’s intention to dwell with a holy people in a holy place help us make sense of the rest of the Bible’s story?
Remember
  • What do we learn about God? What new name does Moses give to God in these verses?
  • What is a covenant?
  • What is the “covenant of works?"  What are the terms and conditions of the covenant of works? How is even the covenant of works a display of God’s grace?
  • Why does Moses give us geographical information regarding the Garden of Eden?
  • Why is it important for human dignity that Adam is a real, historical person?
  • Why is it important for salvation that Adam is a real, historical person?
  • What made Eden a temple? In other words, how is the Garden of Eden able to be compared to the Tabernacle?
  • What job was Adam given in Eden?   Do you think he did a good job as a priest?
  • What does it mean for Eve to be a helper?
  • What was the prohibition regarding the tree of the knowledge of good and evil really about? Is it about eating a piece of fruit? How would you explain God’s purpose for the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?
  • How is Christ a better Adam? Read Romans 5:12-21.  In what ways will our eternal home be even better than Eden? Read Revelation 21-22.
Discipleship
  • How could Genesis 2 help answer, “are we different from robots?"
  • How would you answer someone who believes God is a cosmic party-pooper and Christianity is a straightjacket?
  • What are the racial implications that all humans come from one man?
  • How would you answer someone that says, “That’s not fair that Adam represented me!”
  • Choose one of the following sorts of people and apply how to magnify, uphold, and defend the honor and glory of God in that persons’ daily occupation: a student, a stay-at-home parent, a business owner, a medical professional, a retiree.

SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY


"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42

____________________________


Fellowship isn't just something we do on Sunday mornings. It's gathering together in various groups to discuss Scripture, enjoy each others' company, support each other, share meals, and pray with and for one another. And while we do these things in many ways in our whole-church Sunday gatherings, meeting together through the week in smaller groups allows us to do this in a more intimate setting, allowing us to grow deeper in our relationships with each other and with God.


If you would like to know more about the small groups, please feel free to contact the leaders directly, or you can talk to a pastor or elder, a person who attends a group, or someone in the office.
