Interactive Bible-Study - Hebrews 11 - Christ in the faith of Abel

Tonight Stefano will lead an interactive Bible-Study on the series on Hebrew 11.

The goal is to see Hebrews 11 as a museum gallery full of portraits, but each one of them is pointing to the end of the gallery: that is Christ!

Tonight we'll answer in groups at these questions:
  1. Read Matthew 23:29-37. Why do you think Jesus says to the scribes and Pharisees that the blood of innocent Abel will come upon that generation? Do you think that Jesus could ever say something like that to us? Why?
  2. How can Abel's faith have an impact in our lives? And how it can have an impact in the life of our church?
  3. How would you explain to a non-Christian that the sprinkled blood of Jesus speaks a better word than the blood of Abel?
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
Hebrews 12:22-24 (ESV)
