  • The Need and Means for Spiritual Birth  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read John 8:37-47. This is a harsh interchange between Jesus and the crowd. Why do you think Jesus is so harsh with these people?  
  2. What things does Jesus say reveal our “true father”? Why are these things determinative of fatherhood? What kind of fatherhood is Jesus speaking about?
  3. Consider verse 44. What do we learn about Satan from this verse? Who are the children of Satan? Consider Ephesians 2:1-3.
  4. How does one become a child of Abraham, or one who is “of God”? How does Ephesians 2:4-9 help us answer this question? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

Galatians 3:29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. (ESV)
