Easter 2, Year B, 2021-04-11

Acts 4:32-35, Psalm 133, 1 John 1:1-2:2, John 20:19-31

 

Acts 4:32-35

  • 32 “were of one heart and soul” How can we at St Anne’s mindfully strive for unity?

  • 32-35 Do these verses describe a Biblical economic model? What can we learn from these verses?

  • 32-35 What is the main idea of this paragraph?

 

Psalm 133

  • 3 (BCP, v. 5) Is the blessing of “life for evermore” tied to “unity” in v. 1?

 

1 John 1:1-2:2

  • 1:2, 3 Similar to my question concerning Psalm 133, is “life” in v. 2 tied to “fellowship” in v. 3?

  • 1:5-10 Describe walking in the light.  Describe walking in darkness.

  • 1:9 “faithful and just” I might expect the word merciful here instead of just. Is just surprising?

  • 2:1 The Greek word for “advocate” in this verse is Paraclete. Only John uses the word. Is his use of the word in this verse surprising?

 

John 20:19-31

  • 21 Are we included in this commission? How vital is this commission?

  • 22 Is John’s record of imparting the Holy Spirit in conflict with Luke’s record of what happened at Pentecost?

  • 26-29 Jesus met Thomas’ need for surety. Does He do the same for each of us? Is there a special blessing for “those who have not seen and yet have come to believe”?

  • 31 “Life” is a major theme of John’s. He uses life 36 times in his gospel record and 13 times in his letters.  How do you fancy John would define life?

He Has Risen!

"Don't be alarmed," he said.  "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.  He has risen!  He is not here.  See the place where they laid Him.  But go, tell his disciples and Peter, "He is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see him, just as he told you."  (Mark 16:6-7)

This Lent and Easter season, we are so grateful that Jesus goes ahead of us and we see Him in our world.  Even during difficult chapters, we are surrounded by His love.  We are also reminded that Jesus calls us to BE Him in our world. We can surround others with His love.

Let us prayerfully consider how we can serve those in need and to be the hands and feet of our Risen Lord.  Just as He told us!
