Discussion Questions

  1. Look at a handful of the Messianic prophecies from the Old Testament (the blog post is linked below). How are these prophecies fulfilled in Christ? How did the Prophets see these things “from afar”?

  2. What fears do you have about the future? How does the faithfulness of God through the gospel help to bring you peace and hope?

  3. How is Jesus both the Son of David and the Son of Joseph? Which of these “two messiahs” do you find yourself more drawn to? How can you grow in your appreciation of both aspects of our Messiah Jesus?

  4. How does the reliability of the Prophets give you courage to share Jesus with those who don’t yet believe in him?

Prayer Points

  1. Pray that we would trust Jesus with our future, no matter what trials we encounter.
