Jesus' Anticipated Return: Hope of Eternal Life, Matthew 25
As you read through Matthew 25, prayerfully answer the following questions. God will give you a better understanding of His ways. Share your comments below.
In this chapter, Jesus shares three parables. Jesus' parables are almost always earthly stories with a heavenly meaning whose main topic is the kingdom of God.
1. For each parable, tell what the heavenly meaning is. What is a practical way each parable applies to your own life?
2. Are good works necessary for eternal life?
3. Does this chapter give you hope? If so, which verses?
To help us wrestle with God's Word and engage as a community, answer these questions prior to the next Saturday evening worship gathering.
