K Group discussion Advent week 3

The temptation story

What does this temptation (which Jesus endured) have to do with humanity’s temptation in the garden?

In what ways do we fall for the temptation of sustenance? “Provide us with comfort and we will follow?” (think about this question as individuals, as BCC, and as American Christians – be gracious)

In what ways do we try to rely on authority or power to get what we want?  (even if what we want is right)

In what ways to do satisfy ourselves with big things, events, and spectacles (good or bad) and ignore the ugly dirty places where Jesus went?

How can we try to wrap our vines around the trellis of God’s truth this week?
