Awakening: Fifth Sunday of Lent: Preparing

John 12: 1-8

Compare to Matthew 26: 6-13, Mark 14: 3-9, Luke 7: 36-50 & John 12: 1-8 and consider the questions below as you hear the sermon.


1.    What can we learn by comparing the same story in the four Gospels? What is your reaction to the same story told a variety of ways in Scripture? Which one is “accurate”?

2.    Describe the supper feast that night? What do you see? Who do you see and not see? What do you smell? Hear? Taste? What can you touch? How do you feel about ‘the woman’ who just entered the room? What is your first reaction to her presence? And what she does?
(Referencing Matthew, Mark and Luke)

3.    Respond to what you saw on the screen.

4.    When have you prepared someone for something difficult? Describe the emotions around it on all sides.
