Revelation Chapter 3 Questions

1. (v. 1) Why do you think that the letter to Sardis begins this way? Read the whole passage (vv. 1-6) before you answer.
2. (v. 1) What do you think it means that they have a reputation of being alive but they are dead?
3. (v. 3) What does this passage sound like to you?
4. (v. 4) What do you think it means that they are worthy to walk with Jesus in white?
5. (v. 5) What does Jesus mean by blotting out the name from the book of life? Does this sound like Jesus is implying that those who don’t overcome will have their name blotted from the book of life? How do we read this verse in light of Revelation 13:8, 20:15, 21:27 and Ephesians 1:3-14?
6. (v. 7) Why do you think that the letter to Sardis begins this way? Read the whole passage (vv. 8-13) before you answer. What does it mean that Jesus has the key of David (Isaiah 22)?

8. (v. 9) Do you think this is in reference to the consummation at the end of time or in reference to their time?
9. (v. 10) What do you think Jesus meant by “the hour of trial that is coming on the whole earth?”
10. (v. 11) What do you think that Jesus meant by “soon?” Especially since we are almost 2,000 years later and still counting.
11. (v. 14) Why do you think that the letter to Sardis begins this way? Read the whole passage (vv. 15-22) before you answer.
12. (vv. 15-17) What do you think Jesus is talking about here? Do you think that Jesus could make the same charge about our church? About you?
13. (v. 18) What does it mean to buy gold, salve, and white garments from Jesus? How do we do that?
14. (v. 20) What door is Jesus standing at?
15. (v. 21) What do you think it means to sit with Christ on His throne?
16 Reread the chapter and your answers, what have you learned about God from this passage and what is expected of you? Do you think you are prepared to meet that expectation?
