Questions for Home Groups

  1. In Heb.4.16 the writer says “let us approach the throne” and in 7.19 he speaks of “a better hope … by which we draw near to God.” Read 1 Pet.2.4-5 & 9 and Rev.1.5-6 and think about how Jesus, the great high priest, has enabled us to be priests.
  2. What do you think Psalm 110 is all about?
  3. Read Heb.2.14-18 and 4.14-16. Was the temptation of Jesus real? How does his experience help us?
