Weekly Bible Reading Plan – Aug 30 – Sept 6

Hero of My Story (WEEK 4) Reading Slide - Matt 9.18-38

Questions to Guide Your Study:

  1. To this point, Jesus has healed sick people, not dead people; how would you describe this ruler’s faith?
  2. How is Jesus raising the little girl to life like Elijah raising the boy? How is Jesus greater than even Elijah?
  3. This little girl died again, so why did Jesus raise her at all? What was the point? Are you ready to die?
  4. Matt 9:27-34 recount the healing of blind men. So does John 9. Rev 3 talks about spiritual blindness. How are we that see, sometimes blind? How are we “in the dark”? See 2 Cor 4:4 for more info.
  5. What was the woman feeling as she approached Jesus? How desperate is she? How hopeful? What has her life been like for 12 years? Lev 15:25-30 give the Old Testament laws concerning her.
  6. In these stories, we see people believe Jesus can do the impossible, but do you believe Jesus still does the impossible?
  7. What one thing do you need from Jesus? Not a luxury, but a need? Do you believe Jesus can do it? Will you love him even if he doesn’t?
  8. Will you be a harvester?

Weekly Bible Reading Plan – August 23 – 30

Hero of My Story

Questions to Guide Your Study:

  1. Imagine for a second, how hard it is to move a paralytic adult without a wheelchair. What does that say about these friends?
  2. Whose faith is Jesus noticing and commending with healing?
  3. How would you feel as a paralytic coming for healing, if all Jesus said was, “your sins are forgiven?” Why does Jesus say this?
  4. Why are people so mad that Jesus forgives sins? When someone sins against you, you have the right to forgive, but can someone else forgive them instead of you?
  5. What does Hebrews 10 say can cover sins?
  6. What do the people wonder at in verse 8?
  7. Should we be surprised that Jesus eats with “sinners”? Who are these “sinners”? Why does he eat with them?
  8. In 1 Tim 1:15, Paul names himself the “Worst Sinner” how is that true of all Christians? How is it true of you?
  9. Who is Jesus calling, “the Bridegroom” and how is it connected to Is 54?
  10. Last week, we read Jonah 1; this week we’ll also read Jonah 2.
