1 John 2:1-10: To Know God

Is there a verse in this passage that strikes you in a unique way?

Why does John write this letter?

What is an advocate?

Why is Jesus able to be our advocate?

What is atonement? (my Bible says, “propitiation.” By the way, atonement, propitiation, and satisfaction are all synonymous, according to The American Heritage Dictionary)

What kind of knowing is meant in v. 3? Is it the same as knowing that 2+2=4, for example? How is it different?

What are the two most important commands Jesus gave us? What did He say about them in relation to the rest of the Law? (Matthew 22:37-40)

What does the Bible say of us if we ignore Jesus’ commandments?

What is the word that they have heard?

Can we love God and hate one of our brothers? Are we allowed not to get along?

What do you make of v. 10? (Read 1 Peter 4:8)
