SGQ - September 3, 2017

    Matthew 26:14-25a

    1. In what forms/ways have you encountered Judas previously in our culture? (stories, plays, references in conversation or elsewhere, as a comment on someone’s character, etc…) Do you think this has influenced how you see Judas? Why or why not?

     

     

    1. It’s been said that Judas was bad enough to do what he did, and good enough to be unable to live with it. Do you think this is true for you? Why or why not?

     

    1. In the text, one of Judas’ statements essentially translates as: “What’s in it for me?” Where/when did you last hear someone ask this question (in so many words)? When did you last ask this question of God – consciously or, in retrospect, unconsciously?

     

    1. Judas was unable to conceive of a grace big enough to envelop his betrayal, even though he had spent the previous three years of his life with Jesus. Why do you think he hadn’t absorbed this lesson. Why is it difficult for you and I to truly live as recipients of grace? Try not to intellectualize this too much – speak from a place of experience and share honestly about a time when you pushed away God’s grace…and how you might be able to do it differently, next time.
