Ezekiel’s Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones, from the Luther Bible

Old Testament

  • God said he would destroy Egypt because it was proud and arrogant. Ezekiel 31:10-15. Is pride and arrogance really that bad in the modern world? Why or why not?
  • In Ezekiel 33:20, God says, “I will judge every one of you after his ways.” Is this standard different than what is expressed in Ephesians 2:8-9?
  • God told Ezekiel the people would listen to his words with no intention of doing what he said. What was the motive of the people? Were they just wasting their time? Read Ezekiel 33:30-33

New Testament

  • Is it possible to please God without having faith in him? Hebrews 11:6. Does this mean an unbeliever can never please God, even if the non-believer is otherwise a good person?
  • Hebrews 12:6 says God loves those who he disciplines. Does this mean God disciplines every believer; or only those who deserve discipline?
  • James 1:14 says, “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away and enticed by his own lust.”1 Has it been your experience that your temptation come from your own lust; or does temptation seem to just “come out of nowhere.”
