Proverbs 25:16 to Proverbs 25:28

Discussion Questions:

Old Testament

  • In Jeremiah 12:1, the prophet asks God, “Why are the wicked so prosperous? Why are evil people so happy?” What is the answer to Jeremiah’s question?
  • Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt. Who can know it?” Is this a universal principle, or just something Jeremiah was directing to certain people in his time? Do his words apply today?
  • What is the point of Jeremiah smashing the clay jar (or bottle) in Jeremiah 19.10? Read the 19th chapter of Jeremiah.

New Testament

  • In 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Paul says the church should “encourage one another and build up each other, just as indeed you are doing.” From your personal observations, do you see most believers still following this instruction? Is this an area in which you, personally, could improve? If so, how?
  • God told the Thessalonians it was God’s will for them is to be holy and refrain from sexual immorality. Does this mean they all did so? Does Paul’s advice apply to modern believers? That is, do we all abstain from sexual sin because that is God’s will?
    1 Thessalonians 4:3.

Psalm 48:1-54:7
Proverbs 10:26-11:6
Discussion Questions:
Old Testament

  1. Most rules are made to address a problem or issue that has actually occurred. Do you think people were literally cursing the deaf, or putting stumbling blocks before the blind? If not, what was the meaning of Leviticus 19:14?
  2. Does Leviticus 19:28 have a modern application? That is, does God still prohibit tattoos?
  3. Does reading Chapter 20 of Leviticus make you think there really is nothing new under the sun? That is, the sins of today were practiced in ancient times as well?
  4. In Numbers 1:2, why did God command Moses to take only a census of only the males? See also, Number 1:20, 22, 24, etc.

New Testament

  1. Why did Jesus tell the Pharisees that no sign would be given. Shouldn’t we consider Jesus’ many miracles and teachings to be signs? Mark 8:12.
  2. If Peter thought Jesus was the Christ (Mark 8:29), then why did Peter rebuke Jesus for telling the disciples he would have to killed and raised after three days? Why did Peter seemingly abandon Jesus if he thought Jesus was the Christ?
  3. What was special about the unclean spirit in Mark 9:17-29. How did Jesus cast out this unclean spirit?
  4. In Mark 10:23, Jesus said, “How difficult it is for those who have riches to enter into the Kingdom of God!” So why do many Christians try so hard to acquire riches?
