Small Group Questions (Whole Group):
Read Acts 21:27-36
Describe a time you saw "mob mentality" make people act crazy.
Paul was warned this would happen in Jerusalem (Acts 21: 4,11). How do you think that warning may have actually been an encouragement during this scene? How can God's Word regarding the trials we face be an encouragement to us?
Why do many people "go with the crowd" and not think for themselves? What warning can we take away from this passage?
Why do people elevate "religious rules" over weightier matters, like love, forgiveness, etc?
Pray for one another. Ask how each other is doing with personal prayer / Bible study.
