Subversive Kingdom

Questions for Reflection

  • What is the first thing that comes into your mind when you hear the word “power”? Is it mostly positive or negative? 

  • Read Exodus 34:1-10 together. What is the significance of the parallels between the Transfiguration and Moses on Mount Sinai? 

  • How do you see Jesus’s power and his vulnerability on display throughout his life, death, and resurrection? How does Jesus’s power and vulnerability confront and subvert the world’s use of power? 

  • What is God’s invitation to you this week? What does it mean for you to listen to Jesus, trust in him, and follow his ways? 

  • Where do you have “the capacity for meaningful action” you can use to serve and bless others?
