Small group discussion guide

Discussion groups might wish to prepare their own topics, request topics from the group, use the following suggested topics, or mix and match all three.

Suggested topics:

1. Why is it important to view the more obscure biblical passages in light of the clear ones?

2. How does reading the Bible in context help us prevent our own “privatized Christianity”?

3. Jesus’ parables express God’s unconditional love. Why are they often interpreted negatively?

4. Why is it important to know what the biblical writers were saying to their original audiences?

5. Why are literary forms and figures of speech vital considerations for biblical interpretation?

6. How does Trinitarian theology help us appreciate the Bible’s unfolding story of redemption?

7. Dr. Nordling said, “Every time God says ‘no’ it’s so that his ‘yes’ can be what it is.” Your thoughts?

8. Why is grasping the whole story of redemption better than asking, “But what about that?”

A few guidelines for leading a discussion: 1) Encourage open discussion. 2) Ask questions relevant to the topic. 3) Listen attentively. 4) Encourage divergent views. 5) Encourage everyone to participate. 6) Summarize and paraphrase. 7) Minimize teaching and preaching.

Today’s guest is Dr. Cherith Fee Nordling, theologian and ministry leader for church-based theology education and ministry training at Antioch Leadership Network of Grand Rapids, Michigan. An ordained minister, preacher and popular lecturer, Dr. Nordling is author of Knowing God by Name, recently published by the Peter Lang Publishing Group.
