Ephesians 2:11-22

  • Vv.11-12 Why were Gentiles/ non-Jews separated from God’s people before the arrival of Christ and what did they miss out on as a result?

  • Vv.13-18 What eliminated the hostile wall of religious separation between Jews and non-Jews?

  • In v.17 how did he begin to bring peace?

  • What was the ultimate cost of peace, v.13, v.16b?

  • In what ways do people in the church try to rebuild a religious wall between outsiders and insiders?

  • How can we remove this wall by imitating Christ?

  • V.18 in what ways do we passively keep people from access to faith in Christ?

  • V.19 How can you help your church make others, especially new or different people, feel like fellow citizens rather than strangers?

  • V.20-21 How can you serve others and teach others to join you in building up your local church to reflect the oneness that Christ died to bring to God’s people?

  • What does it take to become friends with others not like you, and why is this an important normal practice in a Christian’s life?
