This Sunday, Rosie will help us reflect on the Jesus’ third teaching about his death and resurrection (Mark 10:32-34). As you prepare for corporate worship, consider the following questions:
- Jesus’ disciples are astonished and others following Jesus are afraid as they head directly for Jerusalem. Jesus then speaks to them directly about what is going to happen in Jerusalem. Do you resonate with the reactions of the disciples and/or followers? What about Jesus continues to astonish you?
- James and John want a share in Jesus’ glory, but they don’t understand what that might mean. How does Jesus redefine glory in this passage?
- The other disciples are indignant with James and John for trying to get ahead, which provides another good opportunity for Jesus to teach about service in God’s kingdom. What are ways that you want to get ahead? What opportunities for service help you counter the need to get ahead?
Feel free to post other thoughts and questions.
