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.
1. Dr. Parry said that Jesus’ lament on the cross includes the entirety of Psalm 22. Does this help us understand what Jesus said?
2. The theology of “Holy Saturday” was mentioned. What are your thoughts on this concept?
3. “We need to give lament 'space' to be itself, but it never has the last word.” Your impressions?
4. How do you understand the resurrection and lament in terms of “hearing in stereo”?
5. Praying for destruction of one’s enemies in the Psalms meant, “Lord save us.” Is that an interpretation of the text, or just imposing our own ideas on the text?
6. Please share your views on the idea that the church “replaces” Israel in salvation history.
7. Should “one fulfilled covenant” be preferred over “two separate covenants”? Why or why not?
A few simple 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.
