The Gospel Changes Everything


  • Depravity on Display
  • Where is Yahweh? What is He Doing? 
  • Gospel Transformation Needed  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Judges 19-21. What are the parallels with Genesis 19? How do the people of Israel fall into such a pitiful state?
  2. How is the hospitality of the old man in 19:16-21 a picture of God’s hospitality to us?
  3. How does Judges 20 compare with the practice of church discipline in the New Testament (see Matt. 18:15-20 & 1 Cor. 5)? What goes wrong in Judges 20?
  4. Compare these chapters with the early church described in Acts 2:42-47 and 4:32-37. What is different? Why? What makes the difference? How?  

Memory Verse of the Week:

Ephesians 5:1-2 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (ESV)
