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. Why is viewing the Father “just like Jesus Christ” so important for understanding him?
2. How does a Trinitarian concept of God help us escape false ideas regarding his nature?
3. How can taking the book of John seriously help us to know who God is and what he is like?
4. Why do “broken” human fathers often affect our view of God and his desire for a relationship?
5. Please share your thoughts on our being Christ’s “image bearers” by loving our enemies.
6. Why is it usually better to “love our neighbors as they are” rather than try to “convert” them?
7. Dr. Fee said, “True evangelism has to stem out of good relationships.” Please comment.
8. The distinction was made between “doing good” and “doing works.” Your thoughts?
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.
