April 5-11 Bible Readings: 

In a Nutshell:   The Feast of Firstfruits was a 1500 year old festival that pointed to Jesus' resurrection and God's resolve to do a new thing in our lives.  Our focus can keep us stuck never seeing the new thing He wants to do in us!

Ice Breaker:  How might it look if someone gets more caught up with trinkets an traditions?

Title:  “He's ALIVE!”

Texts:  Lev.  23:9-12Matt. 28:1-15; Eph. 2:4-6

Some Questions to Consider:

  1. How was Jesus a type of "firstfruits"?
  2. Why do you think Matthew included the story about the lies told by the Jewish leaders regarding Jesus body?
  3. Did the religious leaders have "trinkets and traditions" that might have helped them believe in Jesus?
  4. How might you focus less on trinkets and traditions and more on your relationship with and commitment to Jesus Christ?
  5. How is happiness different than Joy?
