Reading the Bible Together – Day 19

DAY 19

What God has said in His Word … He WILL do … at His perfectly appointed time!

A.M. Reading: Genesis 18:1-15

Genesis Questions Worth Pondering:

In the beginning of Chapter 18, where do we find Abraham?

How does Abraham greet these men?

After all the hospitality shown by Abraham and his household the visitors reveal the purpose of their visit concerning Sarah. What does God reveal?

How does Sarah respond? Why?

How is this similar to Abraham’s prior response in Genesis 17:17?

Then in response, what does the Lord say to Abraham?

When God declares what He will do, what can we be absolutely sure of?

Recall what faith is. Hearing/believing/trusting God’s Word!

Read Hebrews 11:11. What do we learn here about Sarah?

As a means of review, read Hebrews 11:1-12.

What truths do you learn about faith?

How do these truths apply to us?

Jesus asked the question … Do you believe in the Son of God? The healed blind man replied … Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?

P.M. Reading: John 9

John Questions Worth Pondering:

Describe the man Jesus encounters at the beginning of Chapter 9.

What do Jesus’ disciples ask?

How does Jesus answer?

What miracle does Jesus perform and what means does He use?

What similarity could be seen with the original creation of man in Genesis?

Though the miracle was completely performed by Jesus, what evidence do we see that the blind man believed and trusted Jesus?

How do those around him respond?

How do the Pharisees respond? How do we again see division?

Did the Jews believe the blind man’s testimony, even though he had been blind from birth?

How did fear affect the parents’ response?

Why were they afraid?

How did the Jews revile the man?

Did the blind man change his testimony?

This is the first account of someone being cast out of the synagogue because of Jesus.

What does Jesus then do? What does Jesus openly reveal to the healed man?

Jesus first gave the man physical sight. Now Jesus gives him spiritual sight. How does the man respond?

How can you see the contrast between the man who was physically blind, but now had spiritual sight and the Jews who had physical sight, but were spiritually blind?

A “think” question: How is spiritual sight and spiritual blindness connected to faith?

Another “think” question: We are seeing in Genesis how the Old Testament saints lived by faith. How do we see the same truth unfolding regarding the New Testament believers? What/Who are both groups believing?

How do these truths apply to us?

May the Word of Christ dwell richly within!
