1. Take time to discuss the story of Adam and Eve’s sin in Genesis 3. Be sure and focus on the three traits of fallen humanity – blame shifting, blaming God, and the self fix. (See i Jn. 1:8, Rom. 9:20, Gen. 3:7, Heb. 9:14, Gen. 3:21)
2. Reread our primary text for this series of messages on the blood of Christ – Hebrews 9:11-14, 22). What are some things this passage teaches us about the cross of Christ? As you consider the Scarlet Thread found throughout the Bible, what passages stand out most in your heart and mind?
3. Read Zechariah 3:1-5 Discuss this Biblical picture in light of what Christ and his blood means to us.
4. Read Revelation 3:14 – Discuss the phrase “washed their robes in the blood of the lamb”. This is a graphic picture. What does it say/mean to you?
