“Table Talk” Discussion Questions (Acts 20:1-12)
1. Describe a time when you had an embarrassing fall or witnessed an embarrassing fall.
2. Count the number of nationalities/people groups represented in the companions of Paul in Acts 20:4-5. What does this tell you about the Gospel? What does this tell you about Paul’s work and humility? What does this tell you about the early church being countercultural?
3. Paul’s purpose in going to Macedonia was to collect funds for other Christians. How can the church learn from Paul’s example of having traveling companions/accountability in his life? On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the worst and 10 being the best) how would you rate yourself in establishing accountability in your life? Who are your accountability partners?
4. Share about a time when you were unable to stay awake in church (if you don’t have a personal story, perhaps you have one of someone else falling asleep in church). What does the length of Paul’s teaching tell you about his passion for the people knowing the truth of the Gospel?
5. How did the miracle of raising Eutychus from the dead advance the cause of Christ and the testimony of the Gospel? How has your testimony of being spiritually raised from the dead advanced the cause of Christ and the testimony of the Gospel?
