1 Year Reading Through Bible Questions

­­­­Week 4. Questions for 2022 Bible Readings Jan; 24-30

 

Jan.24. Genesis 48:1-49:33 Matthew 15:29-16:12 Psalm 20:1-9 Proverbs 4:20-27 

1.    “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life” (Prov.4:23). 

What do we learn from this verse? Where in the gospels do we find a similar teaching by Jesus?

2.    “10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet,until tribute comes to him; and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples. 11 Binding his foal to the vine and his donkey's colt to the choice vine, he has washed his garments in wine and his vesture in the blood of grapes. 12 His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.” (Gen.49:10-12).

These verses show specific prophecy about Jesus. His triumphant entry to Jerusalem, crucifixion, resurrection and His Lordship. How do you see Christ in these verses?

3.    “And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, 31 so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel” (Matt.15:30-31).

Are you suffering from physical or emotional problems? Please take a minute in prayer. Ask the Lord for healing.

Jan. 25 Genesis 50:1 - Exodus 2:10 Matthew 16:13-17:9 Psalm 21:1-13 Proverbs 5:1-6

1.    In Exodus 2, we read the story of the birth of Moses. What was the tribe of Moses? What was this tribe famous for throughout the rest of the Old Testament?

2.    “And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him” (Matt.17:2-3). 

Moses and Elijah represented the Old Testament. Moses represented the Torah and Elijah represented the prophets. Please read Luke 24:27, “and beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” Can you name one passage from the Torah and another from the prophets that pointed to Christ?

3.    “He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matt.16:15-16).

If Christ ask you today the same question He asked the disciples “But who do you say that I am?” How would you answer? Please take a minute in prayer. Ask God for help to profess your faith. 

Jan. 26 Exodus 2:11-3:22 Matthew 17:10-27 Psalm 22:1-18 Proverbs 5:7-14

1.    “Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came and drew water and filled the troughs to water their father's flock” (Ex.2:16). 

Please compare this verse with Gen.25:1-6. Now, what was the relationship between Moses and the priest of Midian?

2.    “And the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush. He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed. And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.” When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush,” (Ex.3:2-3).

Who is the angel of the Lord in this story? Please notice that the angel of the Lord in v.2 is the same as God in v.3. Also, He is the same one in v.14 “God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” Where in the gospel of John did Jesus use “I Am” to claim He is God?” 

3.    How do you see the crucifixion of Jesus in Psalm 22:1-18? Also, do you feel that God has forsaken you? Cry to Him now, He listens.   

 

Jan.27. Exodus 4:1-5:21 Matthew 18:1-20 Psalm 22:19-31 Proverbs 5:15-21 

1.    “And the Lord said to Moses, ‘When you go back to Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the miracles that I have put in your power. But I will harden his heart, so that he will not let the people go” (Ex.4:21). 

What does “God hardened Pharaoh’s heart” mean? 

2.    “I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you” (Ps.22:22). “I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will sing your praise” (Heb.2:12). 

The author of the book of Hebrews was talking about Christ when he quoted Ps.22. How do you see Christ in Psalm 22?  

3.    Please reread Matt.18:15-21. 

Are you in conflict with someone? Please pray to God to give you courage so you may go to him/her for reconciliation.  

Jan.28 Exodus 5:22-7:25 Matthew 18:21-19:12 Psalm 23:1-6 Proverbs 5:22-23 

1.    How many plagues are in Ex.5-7:25? What are they?

2.    Please read both Psalm 23 and John 10. How do you find Christ in Ps.23? 

3.    “Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times” (Matt.18:21-22). 

Is there anyone in your life that sinned against you? Please take it to the Lord in prayer. Ask God to help you to forgive.

 

Jan.29 Exodus 8:1-9:35 Matthew 19:13-30 Psalm 24:1-10 Proverbs 6:1-5

1.    “And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” 17 And he [Jesus] said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good.” (Matt.19:16-17). 

What did Jesus mean by saying “There is only one who is good?”

2.    “The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god” (Ps.24:4). 

Each verse in Ps.24 refers to Christ. Please reread the Psalm and try to find Christ in it.  

3.    “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning and confront Pharaoh as he goes to the river and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me” (Ex.8:20). 

The reason for Israel’s freedom was to worship God. We also are free in Christ. Do you worship the Lord regularly? Please try to keep a habit of worshipping the Lord in your personal devotional time, with your family and with the people of God in the church.

 

Jan.30. Exodus 10:1-12:13 Matthew 20:1-28 Psalm 25:1-15 Proverbs 6:6-11 

1.    Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matt.19:18-19).

Please compare this list of commandments with the original one in Ex.20. What is missing in Jesus’ list? Why did Jesus omit these? 

2.    In Ex. 12 we read the command of God about the first Passover. Where is Christ in the story of the Passover?

3.    “My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare” (Ps.25:15).

If you find yourself in trouble or in need, who do you ask for help first? David had his eyes on the Lord always. In the time of trouble, he turned to God first and all the time. Please take a minute in prayer. Ask God to help you to be connected with Him all the time.
