Questions on Hebrews Ch12 from 4/15


My Sunday School Life Group is studying Hebrews. Every Monday, I post questions that were discussed the day before in Sunday School. I invite you to ponder/think about them and jot down your thoughts.

On Wednesdays, I post some of the ideas that came up in the Life Group's discussion for you to consider and compare with your thoughts.  

These questions were discussed in my Life Group yesterday. Take time to reflect on them. I'll post thoughts from the class discussion on Wednesday.

Chapter 12
Vv 1-13
Joy and crucifixion are not usually linked. Why are they linked here?

What other word do translators use in v3 besides consider?

Vv5-6 are from Proverbs. Do they mean that all discipline is punishment?

According to v7, does hardship always = discipline? Explain

What’s up with the (parenthetical phrase) in v8?

“for our good” vs. “as they thought best” comment on this pair of qualifiers in v10.

V11 is not an uplifting end. What’s the good and bad news?

We Got This Far This Week

How does the end of v13 relate to v12?

Chapter 12
Vv 14-29

“Every effort.” What does that mean?

Why is holiness important?

According to v15, what’s our job? Or, perhaps jobs? How do we do that/them?

What’s the point of the reference to Esau?

Vv18-21 refer to what OT event? How would you react to the audible voice of God? Why?

Do you agree with v21? Check Deuteronomy 9:19

What synonyms/names are given for heaven? Comments?

Who is in heaven? Make a list. Why is each one significant?

What “word” does the blood of Abel speak? How? Why?

Vv25-27 describe something besides heaven. What? Why?

What is the acceptable way to worship God?

V29. Awful or Awesome? Explain
