Think: 

  • What words or phrases in this passage would you like to understand better? If you have time and a good commentary available, consider looking up those words and phrases and jotting down a summary of what you learn.
  • Go back and look at the Big Idea you wrote on Thursday. Is it on the target or is it a bull’s eye? If not, how does your study of these verses help you refine it into a bull’s eye?
  • Because we are not Jewish and far removed from the Old Testament, this section of priests and sacrifices can be tedious and uninteresting to us. However, verses 23-28 tell us that the Old Testament system didn’t go away because it was old, it went away because Christ did something to render it obsolete. What response should we Gentiles, far removed from the Old Testament, have to the truth in this week’s section?
