Group Discussion

  • Did you have any childhood heroes (real or imagined)?
  • Brainstorm in the group all the attributes and experiences of David’s life that reflect or foreshadow Jesus’ life and ministry.
  • What can we learn from Jesus’ and David’s use of power as a model for our own lives?
  • If Jesus really is a king over the church, what difference would that make for us as citizens of his kingdom? Do we see our lives and choices as an important part of God’s Kingdom purpose?
