He is Risen! Christ and His Disciples Meet: For Small Groups

Sermon Recap

The Risen Christ and his disciples meet in Galilee.  In Matthew’s gospel, this is the first time they’ve seen each other since the garden. This meeting is a bit awkward for the disciples. And seeing Jesus prompts the disciples to both worship and doubt Jesus. Jesus responds to these doubts by re-affirming his relational commitment to them and re-affirming his working partnership with them. And through these worshipping/doubting disciples the Great Commission is fulfilled. It’s the same for us today.

Discussion Questions

  1. Do you ever find yourself both worshipping and doubting Jesus at the same time?
  2. If so, what specifically do you doubt?
    1. Is Jesus real?
    2. Will Jesus accept me?
    3. Do I really know Jesus at all?
    4. Other?
  3. If you believe Jesus accepts and commissions these worshipping/doubting disciples, do you also believe Jesus accepts and commissions you?
