Discussion Questions:
Old Testament

  1. What was the offense committed by Moses which resulted in God banning him from leading the people into the promised land? Why did God consider Moses’ actions so serious? Numbers 20:1-12.
  2. In Numbers 21:6 the people again complained to Moses. Why did they keep complaining, notwithstanding all Moses (and God) had done for them? Was God’s punishment (the poisonous snakes) too harsh?

New Testament

  1. Jesus tells his disciples what signs to expect. Are we to expect to see these same signs today? Mark 16:14-18.
  2. What do we know about John the Baptist? How was his message and ministry different than that of Jesus? Read John 3:1-18
