Study Questions for Groups

By Michael C. Mack

1. What opportunities to do good to others did you have over the past week? What happened?

2. How were you strengthened by another believer last week in such a way that it kept you from becoming weary in doing good and helped you reap a harvest?

Ask two people to read aloud Hebrews 1:1–2:4 one after the other, preferably from different Bible versions. Then ask a third person to summarize the passage briefly and simply.

3. As you listened to this passage being read and then summarized, what jumped out to you the most?

4. Let’s dig deeper:

• What comparisons and contrasts do you see in this passage?

• How does the author identify who Jesus really is?

• What do the Old Testament passages that are cited teach you about angels?

• What do they teach you about Jesus?

• What application did the author provide for his teaching about Jesus and angels? (In other words, why does all that matter to us?)

• How would you use this passage to talk with someone who practices angelolatry (a person who worships or gives excessive honor to angels)?

5. What do you learn overall about Jesus from this passage?  

6. What do you learn about yourself?

7. Why is it important for us to pay careful attention to God’s Word and act on it?

8. Consider someone you know who believes Jesus was a good person but was neither divine nor our Savior. How will you use this passage, especially, and our discussion, to talk with this person about Jesus’ identity?

9. Based on our study and discussion, complete this sentence: “This week, I will . . .”

10. What challenges do you anticipate this week?

For Next Week: Read and reflect on Hebrews 3:1-6 as we continue studying the book of Hebrews and the theme, “Superior.” You can also read next week’s supplemental texts as well as the Study and Application sections as part of your personal study.
