Reflection Questions
1. What connections do you see to the overarching theme of taking the Gospel message to the ends of the earth?

2. What connections did you see within the additional scripture references? How did this enhance your understanding of today’s passage?

3. What similarities did you hear between the First Century church and the American church today?

4. Yesterday and today we read about how the
early church found a solution to a problem (replacing Judas); how do we approach problem solving in our church today? What could we learn from the early church?
