Matthew 26:30 – "Into the Night" – J. P. Kang

Discussion Questions:

1. Just as Jesus and his disciples stepped out of the warm and intimate setting of the Passover meal (Matthew 26:17–20) back into a hostile and volatile world, we, too, find ourselves stepping out of familiar settings of faith and family into new and risky circumstances. How do the songs we sing prepare us for the unpredictable future?

2. When life is dreadful, who cares for you and encourages you keep your perspective and your faith? If you don’t have friends or family who can be that support to you, how might you start to make those connections?

3. What does it mean to you to “turn from darkness to light” (Acts 26:18). In what ways is “turning” an event you look back on? In what ways is it a process you are engaged in for life?
