- When John the Baptist began his ministry, it caused a great deal of excitement. Why was that? What did John think of this attention?
- Why did John dress so oddly and eat odd foods and speak so bluntly? Was he a prophet of God?
- What was to happen when Jesus came? Did it happen?
- When John was arrested the people were left with a decision: what am I to do now? What did they do?
- How do we sift out novelty and get to the substance of faith? Do we know what is substance and what is novelty?
- What fuels your interest in the Christian faith? How is it sustained?
- How can we be sure we are ready to meet God when we gather to worship or come to Bible study?
- In general, what sorts of things do people think are most important in a religious life? Should they be important?
- If we were to meet someone like John the Baptist today what would we think? Could we get past the eccentricities (camel hair and locust, etc.) to the truth?
- What does it actually mean to be a true follower of Jesus?
