Humility humor

O Lord, if You weren’t working with me to make me more humble, what else would You help me with?

Well my friends, I’m taking a break. If you’re checking back here for First and Second Corinthians with Explore the Bible there won’t be posts. It would be a great time to hear from you or answer a few questions through email though. The About page has my contact information. I’m preparing for a summer class at Seminary. That will be taking most of the time I have for posting these.

For a different purpose I’ve answered questions about 1 Corinthians before: 2:9-10, 16 and 3:14.

This is the final week in Leviticus. The title reads, “Show Others Godly Grace (Leviticus 23:1-27:34).” Because of the title of this lesson I would encourage you to read over my introduction to Leviticus and last week’s brief comments. Leviticus 23-27 is profoundly God centered, not man centered. Even care for the poor is centered around what God has done for His people (25:38, 55). Continue Reading »

Last week I reviewed some aspects of sacrifices and their fulfillment in Christ. Most Christians know that sacrifices are no longer called for in Christianity.

Lifeway’s Explore the Bible series continues after Exodus with Leviticus, “Design for Right Living.” I’ve decided to continue through Leviticus and see if the response to these posts continues to be good. Lifeway’s outline for Leviticus is:

Unit 3: Design for Right Living

  1. Do Right When You Do Wrong (Leviticus 1:1-16:34)
  2. Stay Away from Perverted Practices (Leviticus 17:1-22:33)
  3. Show Others Godly Grace (Leviticus 23:1-27:34)

Lifeway continues its vigorous pace to test students and, more so, teachers with enormous sections of Scripture to digest. As always, the best thing for both groups to do is read and re-read and re-read the Bible. Continue Reading »
