Sermon Notes

  1. What was surprising, confusing, or helpful from this passage?
  2. As Jesus sees that the “hour” of His suffering has come, what does He pray for? What does it mean for Him to be “glorified” by the Father?    
  3. Jesus’ hope of being glorified by the Father helps Him to face the suffering and shame of the cross. How does our hope of sharing in Christ’s victory and glory in the future encourage us to endure suffering and shame now in the present? 
  4. Jesus has authority to give eternal life; what is eternal life? How is your life different and better because you possess this eternal life?     
  5. What truth from this passage can you share with someone else this week? Who will you seek to share this truth with?
