&community_txt6=Bible Study Lessons &community_txt7=UNIT 3 • A CASE STUDY IN COMMUNITY These four lessons all relate to the story of Ruth and her eventual marriage to Boaz. This marriage continues the Davidic line. This is the line through which Jesus Christ, the Messiah, will come.
Lesson 10: August 7, 2011 Walk in God's Path Judges 13:1-8, 24-25 After an angel informs Manoah's wife that she will give birth, Manoah prays for knowledge regarding how to raise their child. When Samson was born, the Spirit of the Lord became evident in his young life.
Lesson 11: August 14, 2011 Choosing a Community Ruth 1:8-18
UNIT 2 • LISTENING FOR GOD IN CHANGING TIMES These five lessons study the book of Judges and give a glimpse of Israel's life after they enter the Promised Land. They examine the repeated cycle of disobedience, oppression, repentance, and renewed faithfulness. Lesson 5: July 3, 2011 God Reacts to Disobedience Joshua 7:1, 10-12, 22-26 Sanctification is an important biblical concept. God sometimes gives very specific instructions in the Bible regarding how to accomplish a given task. When Achan disobeyed God's command and kept the "devoted things," which were the unclean things that were supposed to be destroyed, his sin caused Israel to fail in battle. Lesson 6: July 10, 2011 Listen to God's Judges Judges 2:11-19 This passage is an introduction to the book of Judges, which explains Israel's recurring cycles of national apostasy. Lesson 7: July 17, 2011 Use God's Strength Judges 3:15-25, 29-30 Eglon, the King of Moab, oppressed Israel for 18 years with a burdensome tax of money or produce. God raised up Ehud, of the tribe of Benjamin, as the judge or military leader. Lesson 8: July 24, 2011 Let God Rule Judges 7:2-4, 13-15; 8:22-25 The children of Israel were being oppressed by the Midianites, a nomadic tribe traditionally related to Israel (Genesis 25:1-6). Gideon became the judge of Israel and was instructed to limit the size of his army. Lesson 9: July 31, 2011 Return to Obedience Judges 10:10-18 Despite God's repeated deliverance, Israel fell again into idolatry. They responded to oppression by confessing their sin against God. & &community_txt8=Sunday School &community_txt9=10:00 AM Sunday Service
