Ephesians - Introduction

Discussion Questions:
  1. Read Acts 19:11-20. 
    • Why do you think it was necessary for the new Christians in Ephesus to burn their magic books publicly "in the sight of everyone"?
  2. Read Acts 19:23-41.
    • Read verse 30 again. Why wouldn't the disciples let Paul speak to the crowd like he wanted to? What would have happened to Paul?
    • Paul sounds pretty brave, almost superhuman, like nothing phases him? Does that intimate you at all? Do you think you could ever be like Paul?
  3. Now Read 2 Corinthians 1:8-11 to find out how Paul actually felt the day he wanted to go in and speak to that angry mob.
    • Does Paul sound more human to you now?
    • Have you ever felt like Paul?  Have you ever despaired of life or felt the sentence of death like Paul did that day?
    • Read verses 9 and 10 again.  What did Paul learn through that experience?  Have you learned this same lesson Paul did, or is this something you still need to discover?
  4. What do you hope to get out of our study of Ephesians?
