The Death of Jesus

Sermon Questions 

1. Jesus’s cry of abandonment communicates just how far Jesus was willing to suffer for us and our sin. How does it also communicate the Father’s love for us and what he was willing to suffer for our sin (compare this moment with Jesus’ baptism and the Mount of Transfiguration)?

2. Two big things happened when Jesus breathed his last breath What are they (hint: verses 51-53) and how do they impact you?

3. In what ways do the women who hung around Jesus at the cross and the tomb and Joseph of Arimathea show us discipleship with Jesus? 

4. The Pharisees and Priests, along with Pilate, responded to Jesus’ death with fear. Why? Can you relate to their response? Discuss.
