  7. If Yeshua broke down the dividing walls, why do you suppose there is still so much division amongst believers? i.e. Why do we have so many denominations?
  8. How do you understand the discrepancy between the fact that “Messiah did it all on the Cross,” yet we still experience this disunity in the body of Christ?

  10. In what ways does this call to unity affect your own life? How do you experience the reality of unity/disunity in your own believing community?
  11.      So much division exists between and amongst not only denominations, but even within the same Congregation. What do you suppose accounts for this?
