1. As you saw the actual places in Israel where the Old and New Testament took place, was there anything that surprised you about the places around the birth of Jesus?
2. David explained the criteria of prophecy. He said, “A weatherman predicts the weather. A prophet tells the truth. If it’s 99% accurate, it’s not a prophecy.” So why are prophecies important?
3. How can studying prophecies produce faith in Jesus?
4. What was the unique promise that Isaiah wrote about the Messiah’s mother?
5. You can see that God fulfills that prophecy in that Mary was a virgin. What if you were in your room one night and an actual angel appeared to you? Would you believe your eyes?
6. Who is Jesus Christ to you personally? Do you find yourself convinced or in disagreement that Jesus claims to be God? Do you believe that Jesus is the Messiah, and is he your Lord? Ultimately, how we view Jesus defines our entire life. If you’re still not convinced, then why?
7. Do you know someone who believes that Jesus was just a good man, but not really the Messiah? How can you share the Scriptures and the Lewis Trilemma to develop their faith? How can you persuade them to answer the question, “Who is Jesus of Nazareth to you?” and come to the conclusion that Jesus is Lord?
