62. Numbers 18:24 states that that priests would have no inheritance (i.e., no land for the tribe of Levi). What does God provided for them instead? What does this Chapter list? Has God promised a land inheritance for you? List how the Lord has provided instead.
63. Numbers 20 begins with the new generation—it is now 40 years after the rebellion in chapter 14. How are the children like their parents? How are they different? How about your children? Or you compared to your parents. Wow!
64. What did Moses do that the Lord declared, “You will not bring the people into the land”? Does it seem fair? What does this say about the role of leadership?
65. How ridiculous is it to look at a snake statue and be cured of a poisonous bite? Did this really happen? What does Jesus say about this in John 3:14-15? Did Jesus think it happened? Are the stories in the Bible true or not?
66. Balak tried to buy blessing through the prophet Balaam. Was Balaam willing? See Rev 2:14. Was God? How does this lesson influence your own service or calling to the Lord?
DEUTERONOMY – HERE WE GO!
67. These “words of Moses” (1:1) were written during the forty years in the wilderness (2:1-7). When was this read and presented to the people? Why then?
68. Note the event which begins the historical summary in Chapter 1. Why do you think this is so important?
48. Once complete, “the glory of God filled the tabernacle” (Exod 40:34). How does this mold your understanding of God’s glory? Does His glory have substance? Shape? What does it mean to “glorify the Lord?”
49. There are six offerings described in Leviticus. They are found in Chapters 1-5 and 16. What are they?
50. The first three offerings are worship offerings. What is the Lord’s response to these three offerings?
51. The fellowship offering (aka, “peace offering” from shalom) signified peace with God. Reconciliation (peace) is established ultimately by Christ. How does Romans 5:1-2 relate here?
52. The second three offerings are offerings for sin. Whose sin is the offering made for in Chapter 4?
53. What kind of sin is the offering for in Chapter 5? What does this say about the scope of God’s holiness?
54. The annual Day of Atonement was for what kind of sin? Intentional or unintentional. Personal or national?
32. The young man Elihu speaks to Job and the three friends. Describe his initial attitude. Write how his attitude changes as he wrestles with Job’s problems and his understanding of God. Does he gain compassion for Job?
33. List what Elihu knows about God, and creation, and the world (observe repeating words and themes). What he knows is remarkable since Job was written c. 1800 BC.
34. Summarize the Lord’s message to Job in 38-39. Include what God asks Job in 40:2.
35. What is Job’s reply? (40:3-5).
36. How does 40—42 compare with Romans 9:14-24? How it is the same? Different?
37. Super Bonus Question: now explain, “Why do bad things happen to good people?”
38. What does God call Himself in Chapter 3? What does Jesus call Himself in John 8? Compare Exodus 6:1-3 and 7:1-5.
39. Who is responsible for Pharaoh’s unbelief, Pharaoh or the Lord? Notice what is said after several of the plagues, and compare Romans 9:14-18 (again!).
25. The Book of Job wrestles with the difficult question, “Why do the righteous suffer” (or, “why do bad things happen to good people?”). The dialog with Job’s friends begins with Eliphaz (Ch. 4). Summarize in your own words what he first says about Job (4:1-6).
26. Eliphaz as an answer for Job’s suffering. Write it or describe it in your own words (focus especially on 4:7-8 and 4:17-18). How does he ultimately explain why Job is
27. Explain Job’s answer. What is he saying about himself I 6:24-30? Explain the end of Chapter 7.
28. Bildad’s explanation of Job’s condition is captured in 3:3 and 20. What is he telling Job to do?
29. Notice how Job responds in 10:6-7. Is Job lying to himself? How does the introduction to the book (chapters 1-3) help you evaluate Job’s response?
30. Even after all this, where is Job’s trust (see Chapters 13 and 19)?
31. Is Job correct to maintain his (relative) innocence (see Chapter 31)? If so, what is this book all about? Why do bad things happen to good people?
