The Rescue – Week 2

He is Risen!


  • How did you celebrate Easter during social distancing?
  • What was missing?
  • What was new or better this year?

Going deeper:

  • In light of this week’s sermon, what is new information, challenged, or stood out to you?
  • Early in the sermon Pastor posed the question, how strong is your hope? Well, how strong is it? 
    • Is your hope strengthening or diminishing during this pandemic?

Read aloud John 20: 19-22

This seems to be almost exactly what we are experiencing today. Except the Jewish leaders are the coronavirus! 

  • Why are the disciples fearful?
  • What are people fearing today? Yes, covid-19, but what specifically are people fearing?
  • Of all things Jesus said at this time, why do you think the author records “peace be with you” twice?
  • What does this peace lead to?
  • How does it relate to their fears of the time?
  • How does it relate to our fears today?

These moments, like any other moment in our life, expose how any old hope will not do. We need authentic hope. Powerful hope. Unwavering hope. 

  • What are the various things people put their hope in?
    • What is the result?
  • How are these different from putting your hope in Jesus?
    • What is the result?


  • Through covid-19, how is Jesus pressing His peace?
  • What does that peace mean to you?
