This Week’s GOSPEL PASSAGE: John 3:14-21
Questions to Ponder [adapted from Ashes to Fire Adult Bible Study Guide]
- In the passage of Scripture for this week, John makes reference to a story in Numbers 21:4-9. It is about venomous snakes and a bronze snake on a pole. How does this Old Testament story parallel the life and mission of Christ?
- Also, how is light an appropriate description for who Jesus is and what he does?
- Does this passage tell us about God’s nature? If you think it does, what does it tell you?

Life Application [adapted from Ashes to Fire Adult Bible Study Guide]
- Was your initial confession that “Jesus is Lord” different from your daily confession that “Jesus is Lord”? If yes, how are they different? If no, how are they the same?
- If, from time to time, we question our faith or wrestle with doubt, do you think God condemns us for it? Why or why not? How else might God respond?
