Discussion Questions And Guides For Sermon On 1 Peter 2:1-12, The Church As Temple: Its Stones

The sermon manuscript is available at emmausrbc.org/category/sermons

  • Why did some of the Jewish Christians who lived in the earliest days of the church struggle (emotionally, mentally, theologically) with the transition from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant?
  • The church today often appears to be weak and insignificant, worldly speaking. Why is this? How might those who profess Christ be tempted to turn their back on Christ and his true church given this reality? What is the solution to this problem? 
  • Peter says that Christ is both God’s precious and chosen cornerstone and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense. How can one stone be these two different things to different people? What makes the difference?
  • Where is the doctrine of predestination or election taught in 1 Peter 2? Why is this an important doctrine?
  • Faith is a gift. How do people come to have faith in time? 
  •  What is the purpose of God’s temple-church?
  • How should this teaching affect the way you view the church?
