The Story – A People – Sacrifice/Atonement

THE STORY: Week 8 – Sacrifice/Atonement

  1. On thebibleproject.com, watch the ‘theme’ video sacrifice/atonement. How does this video help you understand the O.T. understanding of Sacrifice?  (Does the blood/life explanation help?). How does this video help you understand the connection to the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross?  (His blood/life for ours.)
  2. To atone means to make amends, or repair a wrong (atonement = ‘at one with’).  Can you think of a time in your life when you were on the giving end, or receiving end of some kind of a wrong?  How did that impact your relationship with that person?  How did you ‘make it right’?  Or if it hasn’t been made right, how could it be?
  3. Read Psalm 103 and focus on vs. 6-12 (esp. 11-12).  How does it feel to know that God loves you like this?  What stands out to you about this Psalm?  What is significant to you about God removing your sin ‘as far as the east is from the west’?

(multiplymovement.com also has a video on sacrifice/atonement if interested.)
