2/27/05 - Am the Good Shepard STUDY N OTES

SMALL GROUP STUDY NOTES

I Am the Good Shepherd

The Gospel of John Series � Part 5 of 10

 

Icebreaker Suggestion:

 

Share a time in your life when you felt the Lord helping you through a particularly difficult situation.

 

Bible Text:

 

Jn. 10:11-18

 

Discussion Questions:

 

1.         Why do you think Jesus chooses to name Himself the �Good Shepherd� and not the �Good Lion Trainer� or the �Exquisite Diamond Polisher�?  That is, if He�s the Shepherd then we�re the sheep, and why would that be an apt description for us?

 

2.         In what ways does God know everything about me?  Read Jn. 10:14 and Ps. 139:13-16.

 

3.         How does He know the church?  Read Rev. 3:15 and Rev. 2:4.

 

4.         How do we know Him (Jn. 10:14)?  And how can we know Him better?

 

5.         If God�s sheep know Him, then why does the church need to send (Rom. 10:14-15) and disciple (Mt. 28:19-20)?

 

6.         How does the Good Shepherd in laying down His life for the sheep (Jn. 10:15) contrast with the hired hand (Jn. 10:12-13)?

 

7.         Who is the wolf the hired hand runs away from?  What are some examples of wolves in our modern day society that eat up God�s sheep (i.e. pornography, alcoholism, etc.)?
