Day 1: Read Luke 9:23-27 & Daniel 7:9-14 & discuss: What’s the significance of the title “Son of Man”? Where else does it show up in the Bible? Why was it considered blasphemous by the religious leaders?
Day 2: Read Luke 9:23-27 & Daniel 7:9-14 & discuss: In what way (or ways) were people ashamed of Christ during his earthly life and ministry? In what specific ways or in what kinds of situations have you (at times) been ashamed of Jesus? Aside from Jesus, what else associated with him could one be ashamed of?
Day 3: Read Luke 9:23-27 & Daniel 7:9-14 & discuss: What particular teachings (doctrine) of Jesus are people commonly ashamed of? Consider your life and prayerfully examine it: has there been a recent opportunity to be a witness for God, Jesus, or God’s Word that you let slip by because of shame or embarrassment?
