The Inspiration of the Prophets

Lesson 5

January 31, 2009


 

Key Thought :  God’s resurrection and the inspiration of His prophets is a dynamic process that embraces the prophet’s humanity.

1.       Have a volunteer read Luke 1:1-4.

A.      Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.

B.     How do we know for sure that Luke had perfect understanding from the beginning?

C.      Personal Application :  If you personally knew the writer, how inspired would you believe his writing to be? Share.

D.     Case Study :  One of your relatives states, “A Jewish writer wrote in ‘The Passover Plot’ that the disciples conspired to make Jesus ‘fit’ the prophecies of the Messiah through their writing of the gospels. Could they be part of a conspiracy?” How would you respond to your relative?

2.        Have a volunteer read I Corinthians 7:10-12.

A.      Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.

B.     Is Paul’s counsel based on time, place, and circumstance or on Biblical, eternal principles?

C.      Personal Application :  How does remarriage fit into the picture of separation and divorce according to Paul’s writing here? Why are so many church members remarrying today? Is Scripture to be followed or ignored?

D.     Case Study :  One of your friends states, “You don’t know my husband. He was terrible to live with. He claimed to be a Christian, but he didn’t live like one. I’m sure God wouldn’t mind if I divorced him and found someone else more compatible. God knows my heart.” How would you respond to your friend?

3.         Have a volunteer read Daniel 10:7-9.

A.      Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.

B    Why did Daniel lose all strength and feel like he was sick and pale in contrast with this supernatural; being?

C.      Personal Application :  Do you expect God to speak to individuals today by this method of communication or not? Why or why not?

D.     Case Study :  One of your neighbors asks, “Why did God only speak to Daniel and not too all that were assembled there? When He spoke to Paul, those around him didn’t see or understand either. Why did God only choose one of a group?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

4.           Have a volunteer read Jeremiah 36:1-4.

A.      Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.

B     Why does it seem that when God speaks through a prophet to His people, it always is negative and a call to repentance? Doesn’t God ever speak when things are going well?

C.      Personal Application :  If someone in your church called for repentance and brought up the negatives in the church, would you be more likely to listen and repent or to resent and rebuke the person for focusing on the negative? Share.

D.     Case Study :  Think of one person who needs to hear a message from this week’s lesson. Tell the class what you plan to do this week to share with them.
