How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


OT

12:24-25 Then David comforted Bathsheba, his wife, and slept with her. She became pregnant and gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon. The LORD loved the child and sent word through Nathan the prophet that his name should be Jedidiah–“beloved of the LORD”–because the LORD loved him.

NT

20:46-47 Beware of these teachers of religious law! For they love to parade in flowing robes and to have everyone bow to them as they walk in the marketplaces. And how they love the seats of honor in the synagogues and at banquets. But they shamelessly cheat widows out of their property, and then, to cover up the kind of people they really are, they make long prayers in public. Because of this, their punishment will be the greater.


OT Flash Points

At the darkest hour, the lost lose their perspective and the chosen do their greatest exploits

NT Flash Points

Luke 20:4-7 Look closely at this picture
Seems to suggest that the possible source of ignorance is pride and fear
Can you find the source of wisdom in the picture?


Perspective

Nothing can separate us from the love of God
Can you calculate with that in the formula regardless of the circumstances?
