- Violent Grace
- Read Mark 7:1-13. How have you experienced the deeply disturbing depravity of observing etiquette and tradition over obeying the spirit and substance of God’s ethic/law (see Micah 6:8; Matthew 22:36-40)?
- When was a time you really thought you were better than someone, and then (somehow) you sincerely realized that you were just as bad (or worse)? Why/how is it so vital, freeing, and redemptive to see yourself as the villain? (see 1 Timothy 1:15).
- How has God used the actions of a violent mob and the narcissism of the religious elite to orchestrate lavish redemption?
