Song of Solomon 1 - Isaiah 11
Galatians 1 - Ephesians 1
Sept.20; S.S 1-3. To understand the book of Song of Solomon is a picture Adam and Eve in the Garden before they sinned “And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.” (Gen.2:25). But it is also a spiritual dialogue between the church and Christ. Please read “My beloved is mine, and I am his; he grazes among the lilies.” (S.S 2:16). How do you define your relationship with Christ?
Sept.21; Gal.2. “But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.” (Gal.2:11). Who is Cephas? Please read the whole chapter 2, then please answer, why did Paul oppose him? What do we learn from this incident?
Sept.22; S.S. 7-Is.1. “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.” (S.S. 8:7). In the light of this verse, how do you define your relationship with Christ and with others?
Sept.23; Gal.4. “I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything,” (Gal.4:1). What did Paul mean by “heir as a child”? What did Paul mean by “slave”? Please read the whole chapter 4, then please find out how did God make us His free sons and daughters?
Sept.24; Is.4-6. “Let me sing for my beloved my love song concerning his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill.” (Is.5:1). Who is the beloved? Who is His vineyard? Please read John 15 and find out how can you be fruitful?
Sept.25; Is. 7-11. “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them.” (Is.11:1,6). Who is “the shoot from the stump of Jesse”? When shall “the wolf dwell with the lamb.”? How does this prophecy help you in your salvation story?
Sept.26; Eph.1. “Making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.” (Eph.1:9-10). What did Paul mean by “mystery”? How we, gentiles, were blessed by this “mystery”?
