On Sunday, April 14, 2019 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a message for Palm Sunday. This message focused on Matthew 21:1-11. Below are a set of questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion.
- Read Matthew 21:1-11
- What are some of the most memorable things to you about Palm Sundays (or Easter weekends) that you have experienced in your life?
- On the first Palm Sunday, the people of Jerusalem were most intrigued by the PERSON at the center of it all – Jesus Christ. Matthew 21:11 tells us what the crowds in Jerusalem were thinking about Jesus on that first Palm Sunday. What stands out to you from their description (as well as the exposition of their descriptions from the message today)? In what ways do you hear the same descriptions of Jesus TODAY, 2,000 years later?
- Jesus is more than just a prophet from Nazareth, as we were reminded today. What are some of the prophecies you see Jesus fulfilling as He entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday? How do these fulfillments challenge you to rethink or add to your understanding of who Jesus is?
- Jesus is the King of Kings and the Savior of the World. What are some of the implications of these truths for you today?
- Complete these sentences: “It He is the King (and MY KING), then ___________.” “If He is the Savior (and MY SAVIOR), then __________.”
- C.S. Lewis famously said that only 3 options exist for our assessment of who Jesus is. We can either say He is a lunatic, a liar, or Lord. How would you answer Lewis’s “multiple choice” question?
- What is one particular application you took away from this message?
