2 Peter 2 Bible Study

This is a Bible Study of 2 Peter 2 that I led for a small group. 

When I lead Bible Studies I try to ensure that there is plenty of room for open discussion.  I firmly believe that all Christians in a gathering around God’s Word have a word to contribute for the mutual benefit of all, just as 1 Corinthians 14 indicates.  Our group’s discussion exploded on the Matrix question.

This study has blanks and questions for that.  If you want to comment and give your feedback, I’d love to read your input.

2 Peter 2 Study

Progressive Revelation – God is continually revealing himself – getting closer and closer to us in relationship.  In the Old Testament he was very physical in his interaction with his people.  Now, he has become more and more spiritual.

Read 1 Peter 2:4-12.  What are the Old Testament, physical interactions, that parallel the spiritual interactions of the New Testament?  It’s almost as if God was using object lessons with Israel to bring them closer to Him – we are physical people, so God who is Spirit, comes to us in physical means to teach us and to grow with us in intimate relationship.

Old Testament – Physical Relationship/Interaction

New Testament – Spiritual Relationship/Interaction

 

Spiritual House

 

Spiritual Sacrifices

 

Chosen People – Born of God

 

Royal Priesthood

 

Holy Nation – Kingdom of God

 

Aliens and Strangers in the World

   

 

  1.  What are Spiritual Sacrifices?  How are we priests?  Read Romans 12:1-2
  2. What are the parallels with Romans 12:1-2 and the passage from 1 Peter 2?
  3. Any connections to the Matrix in 1 Peter 2?  Also read 2 Cor. 4:4
