Week 8

Memory Verse:  Psalm 134

Reading #1:  Genesis 14:17-24

Questions:  What 2 important titles does Melchizedek possess?  What 2 important titles do both Melchizedek and Abraham give to the Lord?

Reading #2:  Psalm 121 and 124

Questions:  How does the truth of Psalm 121:2 add assurance to the promise of verse 8?  Have you ever found yourself saying, “If it weren’t for the Lord…” like Psalm 124:1,2? What difference does it make that the helper you have actually made the heavens and the earth?

Reading #3:  Psalm 146

Questions: What distinctions does the Psalmist make between powerful people in verses 3 and 4 and a powerful God in verses 5-10?  How does the truth of verse 6 add assurance to the promises of verses 7-9?

Reading #4:  Matthew 11:25-30

Questions: How does Jesus’ reference to the Father as the Lord of heaven and earth add authority to His statements about who He chooses to hide Himself from and who He chooses to reveal Himself to?  How does the fact that Jesus has been given all things by the Father bring added assurance and comfort to verses 28-30?
