On Sunday, June 8, 2014, I preached a message based out of Ephesians 2:11-22 at Wildwood Community Church.  Below you will see a list of questions for group discussion tied to this sermon.

 

Small Group Discussion Questions (Ephesians 2:11-22)

  1. Read Ephesians 2:11-22
  2. What are some of the ways people divide the world?  Which divisions have been most prominent in your personal life experience?
  3. The Jew/Gentile division was (in part) created by God for a specific historical purpose — to work through the Jewish people to provide salvation for the world.  In what ways has God worked through the Jews to bless the world?  In what ways has this arrangement tempted the Jews into sinful arrogance?
  4. In Ephesians 2:13-17, Jesus is seen reconciling Jews and Gentiles to each other and to God.  Jesus did this NOT by making the Gentiles Jews or the Jews Gentiles.  He did it by doing something different.  How did Jesus accomplish making peace between such different people?
  5. In your opinion, how well does the church exhibit the unity Paul describes here?  Why do you think this unity is so hard to realize given what Jesus has made possible?
  6. Ephesians 2:18-22 reveal that we are a part of God’s dwelling place in the world today . . . a modern day temple.  How would understanding that gatherings of Christians is where “God dwells” today encourage you to not forsake meeting together as a church congregation or small group?
  7. Any particular application you took away from this passage this week?
