Doing Community with Jesus:
Kirk Davis on John 5:1-13
The GG questions in this series are prepared by our various guest speakers.
The following questions were written by guest speaker Kirk Davis.
1. Setting the Scene : Before reading John 5:1-13, Please read John 4 so you would have context on how Jesus
was entering the city Jerusalem.
2. Asking the Right Questions : As you read John 4 – 5:13, what do you notice? Do you think Jesus was being
intentional? Why or why not?
3. Framing the Discussion : Encounter, Disrupt, Re-Imagine, Action
ENCOUNTER breaks open the reality and demands that we see the world in a new way. How are you seeing
God in a new way?
These encounters DISRUPT our complacency in an unjust system and force us into a confrontation with our
self-understanding and our God-understanding. What has been your recent DISRUPTION?
What are you RE-IMAGINING?
What ACTION are you taking towards that re-imagining?
