Discussion | Be Ready to Follow Wholeheartedly

Jon: You are listening to the discussion episode for the story Be Ready to Follow Wholeheartedly.

Bradon: Today, we heard about God promising Zechariah and Elizabeth a baby in their old age. Zechariah did not believe and then found himself unable to speak until the baby was born, and they announced that his name would be John. Mary also had a visit from an angel who promised a baby to her! The crazy thing was she was a virgin, and so becoming pregnant would be a miracle! We learned that it is essential that we are ready to follow God wholeheartedly.

Discussion | The Story of Jesus Spread Faster

Jon: You are listening to the discussion questions for the episode, “The Story of Jesus Spread Faster”

Bradon: In today’s story, we learned about a good man, Stephen, who was falsely accused and then murdered. The religious leaders and other Jews were angry that he was sharing the message about Jesus, so they lied about what he was saying. Long story short, they dragged him out of the city and threw rocks at him until he died. That very day the people began persecuting the believers in Jerusalem and Judea. The believers were scattered all over and took the message about Jesus with them. We learned that during the worst-case scenario, the story about Jesus was spreading faster than ever!

Discussion | Admit Our Wrongs

Bradon: You are listening to the discussion questions for the episode Admit our Wrongs. 

Jon: Today we read a short but powerful story about a disagreement in the early group lead by the disciples. There were individuals being left out of the daily distribution, or in other words not being treated fairly. The disciples recognized they had done wrong, but also recognized that they themselves could not solve this issue. They appointed seven other individuals to care for the people and resolve this issue, which in turn fostered further unity in the group, rather than dividing its people.

Discussion | A Privilege to suffer for Christ

Jon: You are listening to the questions for the episode “A Privilege to suffer for Christ.”

Bradon: We learned that the disciples continued to heal the sick through the power of Jesus and share the message of Jesus even though the religious leaders warned them not to speak about Jesus any longer. In the end, they were flogged and warned again to stop spreading the message about Jesus. After their brutal whipping, they continued to spread the news about the messiah. They felt it was a privilege to suffer for Christ.
