These questions are connected to the message, The Last Supper: The Power of a Meal from Sunday, March 5, 2023. You can watch it here.
- If you knew you had 24 hours left to live, what would you do? What would those final minutes and hours look like? Do they include certain people or places? What would you want to be remembered for? What would be the last things you’d want to say?
- We looked at the Last Supper through the eyes of Luke, but Matthew and Mark also share their accounts of this sacred moment. Read Matthew 26:17-30 and Mark 14:12-26. Do these different accounts give you any new insights into what this experience might have been like? If it helps, put yourself into the scene and picture yourself sitting there with Jesus.
- Marc said, “The gravitational pull is always toward brokenness and pain. We don’t need any regime to rule over us to be enslaved.” Where have you seen evidence of this in your life? Where has God helped you push back against it?
- When have you betrayed, denied or deserted Jesus? What shame or brokenness might you still be carrying?
- How does the table become more a part of Lakeside culture? How might it bleed into our own lives? Brainstorm some ideas. If you feel comfortable sharing what comes to mind, email Pastor Robyn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Plan to share communion with your small group (or whomever you’re going through these questions with) the next time you’re together.
