Discussion Questions

Discussion starters for your small group, triad, or family worship time.
  • If someone were to ask you what the Bible is all about, what would you say?

  • What is the Gospel?  How would you articulate the Good News to someone who asks you about it?

  • What is Hezekiah’s motivation for asking for deliverance from Assyria in 2 Kings 19:19?  Does your prayer life reflect the same motivation or a different one?

  • What reason does God give for rescuing his people (Isaiah 49:23, 26)?  How does this help you make sense of the history recorded in the Bible?

  • As you read 2 Kings 17:5-19, how does that help you understand the social dynamic surrounding the Samaritans that is present throughout the New Testament?
