Bible Study Questions for October 20th, 2018

Saturday at 10:00am EDT

“If the Bible and “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” had in our schools the time or attention that human hypotheses consume, they would advance the world. True, it requires more study to understand and demonstrate what they teach than to learn the doctrine of theology, philosophy, or physics, because they contain and offer Science, with fixed Principle, given rule, and unmistakable proof.

The Scriptures give the keynote of Christian Science from Genesis to Revelation, and this is the prolonged tone: ‘For the Lord He is God, and there is none beside Him.’ And because He is All-in-all, He is in nothing unlike Himself; and nothing that worketh or maketh a lie is in Him, or can be divine consciousness.”

From Miscellaneous Writings, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 366: 1-16

Topic: The Form of a Servant

Moderator: Jeremy from NJ

Bible Readings: Matthew 19: 23-30; Matthew 20: 1-34

Questions:

  1. Who were the sons of Zebedee? What did their mother ask for them (Matthew 20: 20, 21), and how did Christ Jesus respond?
  2. Many times a question was asked or a situation arose that gave Christ Jesus an opportunity to teach. Yet here, he had already addressed the as-yet-unspoken question with a parable. (Matthew 20: 1-16) Why didn’t they hear him and understand?
  3. Give definitions of “minister” and “servant” that are appropriate to the intended meaning in Matthew 20: 26, 27.
  4. What have you learned at this church about the importance of taking “the form of a servant” (Philippians 2: 7) ? How has this changed you?
