Memory Verses: Psalm 103:1-4

 Day 1: Read Luke 8:22-25 and discuss: Without looking for the specific examples and just working from memory, in what parts of the Old Testament is Jesus foreshadowed? Where are there “types of Christ”? What is the significance of this truth (that the Old Testament is about Jesus)?

 Day 2: Read John 3:14, John 6:32-33, Rom. 5:12-21 (or the other references Pastor Scott used) and discuss: Explain how the NT writers interpreted Scripture (the OT) and why they did so? Why did the NT writers emphasize Christ as the substance? What did their emphasis reveal about their audiences’ spiritual needs? Explain how studying these types and their fulfillment in Christ could impact your daily life.

Day 3: Read Luke 8:22-25 and discuss: If we are not careful, what do we tend to think will happen to us, since we are Christians? Why are so many Christians surprised by trials? Describe the most recent trial (or current one) and your initial reaction. Was it surprise or something else? Why?

Homework: Read Luke 8:22-25 and Jonah 1:6-2:10. Look for the parallels between Jesus and Jonah to add to Lesson 2 for next Sunday’s sermon!
