The Origin of Violence

Reading: Genesis 4:1-16

Study Group Questions

  1.  What struck you about what you heard? Was there anything you didn’t understand or agree with?
  2. What were the consequences of Cain’s murder of Abel? Do you think violence still causes these consequences today?
  3. Jesus’ blood ‘speaks a better word’ than Abel’s (Heb 12:24). What might that mean for our world? How can your group help each other to reflect Jesus’ example of love and forgiveness?
