Thoughts and Questions – 13 December 2020

Thoughts and questions, w. b. 13/12/20
Luke 1:26-38

Within this reading the angel Gabriel arrives to tell Mary what is about to happen.

  • What other instances can you think of concerning angels?
  • Why do you think angels were used in these situations?
  • How important do you think it is that Jesus came from David’s line? Why? – v27
  • What do you think it means to find favour with God? – v30
  • How, and when, do you see Jesus receiving David’s throne? – v32
  • How would you describe the ‘Kingdom’? – v33
  • In what ways do you represent the Kingdom?

The angel said, ‘No word from God will ever fail’ (v37).

  • Do you think that this only applies to angel speech?
  • Do you think it applies to other Bible passages?
  • Do you think it applies to more? What else?
  • Do you think that Mary considered the consequences before saying ‘Yes’ to the angel? – v38
