Remember It

Contemplate these questions, then click on each question to see the answer.
1. What are two of the key passages used in the presentation to show that we need to preach all that Jesus taught?
Matt. 28:18-20, Luke 24:27, Matt. 5:18, Matt. 7:24, 26
2. What are some ways that the early church showed flexibility in their “teaching schedule”?
The church after Pentecost met daily in the temple, and met in homes for “breaking bread” (Acts 2:46) but later we see that they seem to have begun meeting on Sundays for “breaking bread” and teaching (Acts 20:7).
3. What are three examples of spiritual leaders in the Bible who were committed to communicating the whole Word of God?
Joshua, Ezra, Paul

Discuss It

  1. What do you see as some of the challenges to teaching the “whole” counsel of God?
  2. Is it realistic for a church to really teach the whole Word of God in Sunday preaching? It could take a long time to cover all 66 books of the Bible.
  3. In your church, when would be a good time to cover the book of Deuteronomy or Leviticus?

Apply It

  1. Review some good Bible study method’s books and personal reading plans. Which one could you recommend to people for their use?
  2. If you had the responsibility for scheduling two main teaching services per week of a new church, which subjects and which books of the Bible would take priority in your schedule for the first five years?
