Discussion Questions

  1. Many look at Daniel as a man we should emulate. What other biblical characters do people consider "good examples?" Is there any issue with seeing these characters as just moral examples?
  2. How do we balance human wisdom and action with the sovereign plans of God?
  3. Read Genesis 3:1 and 1 Peter 5:8. Do you find temptation tends to be more subtle (Genesis) or blatant (1 Peter)? Which have you experienced more in your own life?
  4. Would you say we (Christians) are currently living in exile? Why or why not?
  5. What, if anything, are you willing to die for? Why?
  6. What is something the Lord has been teaching you this week?
