Why does the God of the universe enter into a partnership with lowly humans?
To help facilitate an approachable and engaging learning environment for your group, check out our Facilitator Discussion Tips.
God could rule the world all by himself, but he desires to share his rule and partner with humanity. What does this tell us about his character?
How would your group begin to describe the purpose and definition of a covenant?
As a group, summarize the four covenants God makes in the Hebrew Bible. What promises are made, and what commitments are required in each agreement? Review the video or dive deeper by reading Genesis 9:8-17, Genesis 17:1-22, Exodus 34, as well as 2 Samuel 7:12-17.
Describe one way Jesus’ new covenant relates to and completes the four old covenants (e.g. Luke 1:31-33, John 3:16-18, Colossians 2:10-12, as well as 2 Corinthians 3:4-18).
Take time to discuss other themes, questions, or key takeaways from what you learned together.
