Ezekiel 34:23-24


Message questions

This weekend is Palm Sunday and as we lead up to Easter, we will be asking the question WhoisJesus? Oftentimes, our expectations of Jesus blind us from seeing who he really is. This Sunday, the big idea is, Our expectations of Jesus can blind us from seeing who he really is. Our passage is Luke 19:28-44.

Use these questions to discuss the message from Sunday, focusing on how you can grow as an everyday follower of Jesus and how you can go accomplish what Jesus calls you to do.

  1. Have someone read Ezekiel 34:23-24. What is the promise of one shepherd? How do you think those who heard this promise understood it?

  2. Read Luke 19:28-40. What was the significance of the colt and the clothes on the colt? Why are the disciples excited for Jesus to show up?

  3. Have someone read Matthew 20:20-21. What are the disciples and their families wanting and hoping for from Jesus?

  4. The disciples and the pharisees missed who Jesus was as they built their own little kingdoms. Share a time when your expectations of Jesus blinded you from seeing who he really is. How did this cause you to grow in your relationship with Jesus?

  5. Jesus’ victory was self-sacrificial death on a cross. How can you go to your friends and neighbors in a self-sacrificial way? Who in your life needs to know who Jesus is? Spend a few minutes praying that God would provide opportunities for you to invite them to Easter weekend.
