March 31, 2019, 4:46 PM

Read Matthew 24:1 to Matthew 26:35

 

Talk about your own epitaph. What would you like to have written on your tombstone or said about you after you pass?

 

Share your feelings about how the world will end.

 

Talk about your opinion and understanding of Matthew 24:14 and Matthew 24:29-31.

 

Talk about how Matthew 24:48-51 might be related to Matthew 24:15.

 

Talk about your opinion and understanding of Matthew 24:23-27.

 

Can what Jesus said in Matthew 24:34-35 be true and accurate? Talk about how it might be so.

 

Matthew 25:1-30 presents two parables, both of which are related to our attention to our faith. Talk about the things you do to deepen your faith – like Bible study, prayer, attending church.

 

 

How might these practices fit with Matthew 24:43-44?

 

The parable of the sheep and the goats (Matthew 24:31-46) ends with a familiar statement in Matthew 24:45. Talk about what this means to you and to the church.

 

It is interesting that chapters 23, 24, and 25 of Matthew are almost entirely Jesus talking, and seem to focus on faithfulness and end times – whether the end of the world or our own personal end. Talk about why Matthew might present this powerful message so close to the end of the Gospel.

 

Most scholars believe the expensive perfume in Matthew 26:6-13 was likely some mixture of myrrh. Talk about how it relates to Matthew 2:11.

 

Talk about what Communion means to you.

 

What important detail do we see in Matthew 26:21-28 (that is, who is included in receiving this holy act)? Talk about how this might relate to each of us on a personal level.
