LESSON 1 – CHURCH AND GOVERNMENT – STUDENTS’ HANDOUT (by group)

“What is the involvement of the church in matters of the State?” We will now be looking into several passages that
would shed light on what it means to be a citizen of the State and at the same time a citizen of the Kingdom of
God.

Each group will be given 20 minutes to discuss their answers to the guide questions given in the handout. Each
group leader will share their group’s thoughts to the larger group.
Study carefully Mark 12: 13-17.
