Speaking of JESUS

Speaking of JESUS


July 19, 2020: Speaking of Treatment Protocol

The message that sparked the conversation ... The Jesus Protocol.

Remember when you were a kid and your parents made you go to the dentist? Getting your teeth cleaned isn’t always a pleasant experience, but the alternative much worse. Join us in a discussion about painful treatment plans, new life, and the Sermon on the Mount.

Discussion Questions

  1. Think of an experience you have (personal or observed) with a difficult medical treatment (e.g., if felt like the physician was doing you harm but was actually doing you good).

    If you were to write a short story about that, what would the title be? Tell us the short story ...

  2. Have you ever seen a medical treatment go wrong (i.e., it did more harm than good)?

  3. How have you seen attitudes toward medical authority shift in your lifetime?

  4. At the end of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, we hear that Jesus was speaking "as one who had authority" (Mat. 7:29). Then we're told, "He took our illnesses and bore our diseases" (Mat 8:17). As you listen to this portion of his treatment plan in Matthew chapter 7, pick a word or phrase that interests or puzzles you, challenges, raises questions, or gets your attention. Why did that word/phrase "get" you?

  5. What do you get to know more deeply about Jesus through hearing this?

  6. How is this good news for you?

  7. Reflecting on this, what do you want to say to people in your household, church, or neighborhood?
