Question and Answer

Priestly... duties...

Last week Brenda Sommer led a tangible discussion on baptism and what it looked like in the relationship between Jesus and the Father.  This week we have a few things on the docket.  We will be looking at Priestly duties and what it means that Jesus is our High Priest.  We will continue in Revelations and serving on Sunday.  With Stars and Stripes coming up there are some activities that we are going to be involved in and we need some youthful aid in serving, so if you are eager to serve let me know and we'll get you plugged in.

Wednesday:  We will be looking at how Hebrews (talking about Jesus as our High Priest in chapter 4+), connects with the significance of the High Priest to the Jews, primarily found in Numbers (starting in chapter 3).  Is the picture we are given of Jesus as our High Priest (H.P.) just something clever to help Jews understand Him or is the picture of our H.P important for us (Gentiles) to understand as well?  Please ask your kids discussion questions such as... What is the H.P. primary responsibility?  How does Jesus, as our H.P., represent us?  Please read ahead so that you may know some scripture that we will have talked about.
   Scripture:  Hebrews 4:13-16, Numbers 3, 1 Kings 8:46, Romans 3:23, 1 John 1:10

Sunday morning:  Last week we finished the seven letters to the seven churches in Asia and began to take a look at what the current state of Heaven looks like.  We will begin to get into the hard prophetic aspects of the unfolding of Gods wrath and the scrolls opened by the lamb.  We will be taking a reasonably conservative approach to understanding this section as prophetic imagery of the destruction of Jerusalem  while including other perspectives of the book.
   Scripture:  Revelation 5-6 (or more as time allows)

Sunday night:  We will meet at my house at 6pm and then we will be serving Mickey Bein.  Last week we served Linda Hunt and then went swimming at the Dunhams.
