Episode Questions 

1. In the episode when Jesus mentioned “everyone has had wilderness experiences,” what  do you think He meant?

3. The paralyzed man and his brother both responded to pain and suffering in different  ways – yet ways that would not end their pain. What is your default to ease your pain  but really doesn’t help? 

4. In the episode, when Jesus was asked why He didn’t wait until sundown to perform the  miracle, He replied, “Sometimes you have to stir up the water.” What do you think He  meant?
