-Read Zechariah 2:1-12 as a group. What elements of that passage would provide hope to a suffering people? Which of those elements would you say is the most important and why?
-How does God's language of "dwelling in the midst" of the people/city connect to larger Biblical themes of God's presence?
-How is King Jesus presented to us in Zechariah 9:9-10? Why is peace such a vital component to His reign?
-How could the truth of this city of peace be a blessing to non-Christians in your life? How would you communicate it to them in light of Christ?
-At the end of the sermon, Kyle applied this theological theme to present suffering from Hebrews 10:1-11:40 and 13:1-25. In your own words, how does the city described in Zechariah empower us for faithfulness to Christ?
