Home group questions:


1. How does it make you feel to hear that the lowly, despised shepherd were the first people that the angel announced Jesus’ birth to? (v8-9)

2. The angel announces the birth of Jesus and tells the shepherds who he will be. Why is it so important that Jesus was described as Saviour, Messiah (Christ) and Lord and not just one of these? (v10-11)

3. The shepherds response was immediate in going to find Jesus and one of joy in telling people what they had heard. What holds us back from coming to God’s word and finding out more about Jesus and sharing his good news with others (v15-17)

4. How do you feel about the response of all the people to the news the shepherds shared? How does it compare to today? (v18)

5. Have you lost your joy and amazement for God? How can we rediscover that joy and amazement and help one another to look to the good news of Jesus. (Consider verses 19-20)
