 Group Discussion Questions

Focus on the questions that are most relevant to your group and skim or skip those that are not at this time.

  1. Have you ever shared your faith in Jesus Christ? Why or why not? Have you ever invited anyone to church or to a church activity?
  2. Who was Nicodemus? Can you identify with him in any way?
  3. Jesus shares three huge matters that are at stake for each human being. The first is entrance to the kingdom of God. How does a person enter the kingdom of God?
  4. The second matter at stake is our eternal destiny. What are the options? What does it mean to “perish”? And conversely, what is “eternal life”?
  5. The third matter at stake is final judgment. What are the possible outcomes for each human at the final judgment? In this context, what does it mean to be condemned? To be saved?
  6. What is the rest of the story in regard to Nicodemus? See John 7:50-51 and 19:39-40.
  7. Where do you stand with Jesus Christ? Have you trusted in him to be your savior? Do you know if you are in the kingdom of God? Do you know what will be the outcome for you at the final judgment?
  8. With whom will you share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ? And what motivates you to share it?
