Study Questions for Groups

By Michael C. Mack

1. How did you do in keeping your thoughts focused on Jesus over the past week?

2. Did you have a chance to strengthen another part of the “household” of believers last week? How did that go?

Ask two people to read aloud Hebrews 10:1-18 one after the other, preferably from different Bible versions. Then ask a third person to summarize the passage in one minute or less.

3. What part of this passage gives you the most hope?

4. Let’s dig deeper:

• What can the law do and what can’t it do?

• What words and phrases are used to describe the sacrifices performed under the Old Covenant law? (You might want to make a list on a large sheet of paper or board.)

• What words and phrases are used to describe Jesus’ sacrifice? (Add these alongside the previous list.)

• As you compare these two lists of words and phrases, what understanding of God’s grace do you gain?

• What do the words from Jeremiah 31 (verses 16-17 in our text) add to your comprehension of God’s plan for his people?

5. What do you learn about God from this passage?  

6. What do you learn about yourself?

7. What do you learn from Jesus about obeying God in this passage?

8. What sacrifice(s) can you make for others this week?

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

10. What help or encouragement could you use in striving to be a more self-sacrificial person this week?

For Next Week: Read and reflect on Hebrews 12:14-29. You can also read next week’s supplemental texts as well as the Study and Application sections as part of your personal study.
