Welcome to Gospel Read Thru In October! We are reading through all four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John from October 1st to the 31st. If you are not familiar with the details of this Gospel Read Thru, but would like to join us, please go to Gospel Read Thru Details and print out the Schedule. Once you have completed the reading for October 5, you may like to return here to answer the following questions. Please keep in mind, these questions are totally optional.
1. What did you learn from marking “kingdom” in these chapters and what is the kingdom o f heaven compared to in Chapter 18?
2. What did Jesus mean in Matthew 16:6?*
3. What do you think about Matthew 17:9-13?*
4. In chapters 16-18, how many times and in what verses does Jesus mentioned that He will be killed and raised on the third day?
5. Who watches over the little ones?
6. What should we do if someone sins against us?
7. According to Matthew 18:23-35, why must we forgive?
*Remember to always stay within the context of what is being said and support your answer with Scripture.
These are just very simple questions, but you can take it a step further and ask yourself what is happening in each chapter. As there is a change of subject, mark it in the margin of your Bible.
Ask yourself: Who is Matthew speaking to or about? Who is Jesus speaking to? What is going on? When is it taking place? Where are they located? Why is Jesus saying what He is saying or Why are the Pharisees saying what they are saying? How are the people responding to Jesus? Are there any prophesies about Jesus? Are they being fulfilled?
Now that you have finished your reading of Matthew 16-18 and answered the questions above, please stop by the Gospel Read Thru In October Facebook page and leave a comment about something that stood out to you while you read Matthew 16-18.
