  • What insights did you gain? 
  • What questions did it raise?

2 Samuel 7:1-17

  • What do you think is David’s motivation to build a “house” for the Lord? 
  • Notice how the Lord flips the house building. Instead of David building a house for the Lord, the Lord will build the House of David. What does this tell us about the character of God? 
  • How do you see Jesus reflected in the promises in this covenant? 

2 Samuel 7:18-29

  • How would you summarize this prayer of David in your own words? 
  • Focus on verse 29. How do you think it “pleases” God to build the House of David? 

Psalm 89:3-4

  • How do you see Jesus as the fulfillment of the Covenant with David? Reflect on the similarities you see between Jesus and David. 

1 Peter 2:5-9, Ephesians 2:19-22

  • What stands out to you from these two passages? 
  • What are some ways you see this connected to the promise given to David? 
  • What difference should this promise make in our life today? 
  • What is one way that you find this promise encouraging for what you are facing today?
