The Holiness of Christ : Discussion Questions

Topic: The Holiness of Christ
Speaker: R. C. Sproul
Scripture: Mark 4:35ff

The disciples were terrified by the destructive forces of nature. What was Jesus’ response to the storm?

Why did the disciples become even more fearful after they saw Jesus exercise power over the storm?

Why does being in the presence of holiness invoke fear in man’s heart?

If the presence of holiness invokes fear in man’s heart, how is it possible to have peace with God who is perfectly holy?

This is the sixth lecture in the Ligonier teaching series The Holiness of God.

The Ligonier website describes the series as follow,

“The Holiness of God examines the meaning of holiness and why people are both fascinated and terrified by a holy God. This series closely explores God’s character, leading to new insights on sin, justice, and grace. The result is a new awareness of our dependence upon God’s mercy and a discovery of the awesomeness of His majestic holiness. Dr. R.C. Sproul says, “The holiness of God affects every aspect of our lives — economics, politics, athletics, romance — everything with which we are involved.”
