Doing Life Together Questions

Use these questions as a guide for your small group discussions as you do life together.


Week 1
Questions
  • What is so significant about John describing Jesus as “The Word?”

  • How is the metaphor “Jesus being the light” impactful to you?

  • John, the writer, describes John the Baptist as one to testify of the light. How would you hold up in the court of law as a character witness of Jesus?

  • Why did people not recognize Jesus when He came? How does this relate to those still missing him today?

  • John sums up the incarnation of Christ in verse 14. How significant is it for us that Jesus came in the flesh? How have you experienced His glory personally?

  • John describes Jesus as being filled with “grace and truth.” How do we see Jesus embody both “grace and truth” that was not always popular but effective? How can we do the same as those called to live in His light and embody his glory through us to others?

Week 2
Questions
  • What were the social, religious, gender and other barriers that Jesus broke?
  • In talking to this woman at the well, how does Jesus show love? How is His example a challenge to you, to reach out to others who are not like you? 
  • What is it about Jesus’ offering to this woman that is about more than water? 
  • How do we drink Jesus’ “living water” ourselves?

  • What is so significant about Jesus choosing this woman as the first person to whom He revealed that He is Messiah? (v. 25-26) How does that show that His mission is not just for a select few?
  • What is the woman’s response to Jesus’ love and acceptance towards her?  How does that affect her and her community?
