OIA for sermon on Easter 2012

This week Joe gave the Easter Sunday message. There was not a primary text used, so Luke 24 will serve as the primary text for this weeks questions. (Note: Luke 24 is also the chapter that disscusses the Road to Emmaus story, which our church is named after.) The following is a list of OIA questions based on this message.

(See sermon page emmauscf.org/sermons/ for a complete list of scriptures used)


1. Are there any cultural or background issues that are important in understanding the listed passages?
2. What key word(s)/phrase(s) really stand(s) out to you in these passage of scripture? Why are/is they/it important?
3. Which scripture passage did you find most intriguing or interesting? Why?
4. What key word(s)/phrase(s) really stand(s) out to you in this passage of scripture? Why are/is they/it important?
5. If you had to sum up all five of theses passages of scripture in one sentence, what would it be?


1. Compare at least 3 of the used passages with at least 3 other Bible versions (NIV, ESV, NASB, NKJV, Ect.) What similarities/differences do you observe? Share with your group.
2. Are there any verbs, commands, prepositions, or conjunctions, that seemed to stand out? What? Why? Share.
3. Read through at least 2-3 commentaries on the listed passage and share what your learned with your group. Here are some free online resources. (http://net.bible.org) (http://www.blueletterbible.org/) (http://biblia.com)

2. Discuss the background and importance of the Road to Emmaus passage. How does this story impact/encourage/challenge you? Share with your group?
3. How can Luke 24 help in an evangelism setting? And what are some of the physical, tangible, and scientific evidences for the ressurection? (Biola has done some extensive work in this area.)
