Scripture: Daniel 12:1
Discussion: The opening verse of Daniel 12 speaks of “The Great Promise of Rescue,” as referenced in the sermon notes. What comfort do we find in this verse? How should we live in light of the truths we find here in verse 1? How might this motivate your efforts to share the gospel?

Scripture: Daniel 12:2
Discussion: From verse 2, we see that there is what is described in the sermon notes as “The Great Promise of Resurrection and Judgment.” Spend some time in Scripture finding passages that speak of the resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous as well as the judgment that awaits the unrighteous that die without Christ. Discuss those passages of Scripture and what they teach us about what followers of Jesus will experience after death and what the lost will experience after death.
