After - Day 35

End of the Week Study 

The following is a guide to help facilitate discussion. Feel free to add or subtract or change questions to fit the conversation, and pray for the Spirit to lead in all things.

What do you imagine your “After” story would be? If your biography was written today, what would be said about you? Who would you want to have write it?

Read Acts 1 together and share any wisdom, insights, or questions in response to the reading. 

Before Jesus ascended into heaven, the disciples were promised an incredible gift–the Holy Spirit. Do you think they truly knew what they would be getting? How could that have lessened their worry/sadness about Jesus leaving them?

In verse 6, the disciples ask a very pointed question. What do you think was happening in their hearts/minds at this time? Were they in-line with Jesus’ mission, or off-track? 

Jesus left and the disciples waited. What do you think they did in those 10 days as they waited for the Holy Spirit to come?

In what way do the angels' words in verse 11 speak hope/strength into your life today?

Peter emerged as a leader in the upper room. Knowing what you know about his journey and his shortcomings, would you have any trouble following him? Why or why not?

Compare the way the disciples decided upon adding a new apostle to the group with experiences you’ve had in choosing/electing a person into a new role. How is it similar/different?

In verse 8 Jesus says, “you will be my witnesses.” How does that statement apply to you today? How are you, or are you not, fulfilling it?

Is there anything that is holding you back from spreading the gospel more fully/intentionally?

How can this group help you and encourage you this week?


“ will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
‭‭‬ Acts 1: 8b ‭NLT‬‬
