The Worst Day In History
Passage: Matthew 27:27–:56
“The worst day in History”
Four signs that point to Jesus’ truly being the Son of God:
1. There was supernatural darkness over all the land from 12PM-3PM (v.45)
2. The temple veil was torn from top to bottom (v.51)
3. There is an Earthquake that opens tombs and Resurrected Saints emerge! (v.52-53)
4. Those in charge of the crucifixion and were guarding Jesus as He hung on the cross believed! (v.54)
1. Live Free!
2. Do not waste your access!
3. Live as though you will be Resurrected!
4. Taste and see that the Lord is good!
DEEPER DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:
- Why do you think Jesus cried out “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me”?
- What does it mean to have access to God, and what is the significance of this?
- How important is the belief in Resurrection to the gospel, and why?
- Why do you think the Roman Centurion believed?
- If you had to make an argument for Jesus’ crucifixion being the worst “act” or “day” in history, how would you argue it?
- How does knowing God’s wrath for your sin was poured out on Christ affect your actions and your relationship with God?
- What does having access to God the Father look like in your life? What should it look like?
- How do you practically live out a life that is not for here and now, but for your resurrected, eternal life?
- Think on what caused you to believe in Christ, how was it similar or different from the Roman Soldiers experience?
PRAYER: Take some time to pray for one another, and to praise God for what He did for us on Good Friday.
Encouragement: Take some time to encourage those around you to continue to live for Christ despite being stuck at home. Look for gifts they have that they can use for God's glory at a time like this!
