Discussion Questions:
Old Testament

  • The prophet, Isaiah, said God’s kindness to the wicked did not make them do good. Have you found this observation to be true in modern society? Isaiah 26:10
  • Is talking like a righteous person—using words and phrases that good church people say–better than nothing, even if your heart isn’t really in what you say? Isaiah 29:13
  • Why, in Isaiah 36:11, did the representatives of the King of Judah request the Assyrians speak in Aramaic? Was this a reasonable request? How did the Assyrians respond? Read Isaiah 36:1-20

New Testament

  • Was Jesus Christ cursed, since he was “hanged on a tree?” Galatians 3:10-14.
  • Discuss the analogy of the child under a guardian in Galatians 4:1-7. What does it tell you about the Law and Jesus Christ?
  • Can the Holy Spirit help you resist desires of the flesh? Galatians 5:16. Even the desires enumerated in Galatians 5:19-21? How does this work?
