Join Our Old Testament Survey Class


We have recently  started an Old Testament Survey class on Wednesday evenings.   The first quarter will cover the first five books of the Bible, the Pentatuch.  We will individually read the assigned chapters and then answer the study questions for that reading.  On Wednesday evening we will discuss the answers to the questions and review what we have studied for that week.   This week we will read Genesis chapters 27 through 36.   The study questions are below.  

Questions for Genesis 27-36:

1. Who persuaded Jacob to deceive Isaac in chapter 27?

2. Why was Jacob sent away and where was he told to go?

3. In the latter part of chapter 28 what important message did God give Jacob?

4. How did Laban treat Jacob treacherously in chapter 29?

5. Who were Jacobs wives and how did he end up with them?

6. Why did Jacob leave Laban in chapter 31 and where was he going?

7. What did Rachel take in chapter 31 that belonged to her father?

8. How did Jacob feel toward Esau and what did he do because of it?

THE GREAT COMMISSION

 

In the latter part of the gospels of Matthew and Mark we have what Bibles students refer to as “the Great Commission.” Notice how it’s recorded in Mark 16:15-16, “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.’”

 

These words were stated by Christ during His last day on earth only moments before he ascended back into heaven. At that time He gave the apostles this urgent and important command. It was urgent because in just a few days He would fulfill His promise to baptize the apostles in the Holy Spirit, which would take place on the day of Pentecost. When that happened they would be empowered with the knowledge and ability to begin giving their testimony as witnesses that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God.

 

The command was important because the gospel was the good news that Jesus had lived a perfect life and died as the perfect sacrifice, making salvation possible for all of mankind. The ones who would benefit from this gracious demonstration of love and mercy were those who would believe the message and act upon it by being baptized, because they would be saved. Those who would reject the gospel would be lost.

 

So it is easy to see why the urgent and important command Christ gave the apostles in this passage is called “the Great Commission.”
