Bible Study Questions for February 9th, 2019

Saturday at 10:00am EST

“The Scriptures are very sacred. Our aim must be to have them understood spiritually, for only by this understanding can truth be gained. The true theory of the universe, including man, is not in material history but in spiritual development. Inspired thought relinquishes a material, sensual, and mortal theory of the universe, and adopts the spiritual and immortal.

“It is this spiritual perception of Scripture, which lifts humanity out of disease and death and inspires faith. … Christian Science separates error from truth, and breathes through the sacred pages the spiritual sense of life, substance, and intelligence”

From Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures

Topic: “Our sufficiency is of God”

Moderator: Betty from CA

Bible Readings: 2 Corinthians 3


  1. In II Corinthians 3: 5 it says, “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;” What does this verse mean ? (II Corinthians 3: 4, 5)
  2. In verse 6 it declares, “Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. “ What does this mean? (II Corinthians 3: 6)
  3. In verse 17 it reads, “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” What does this verse mean? How is this relevant for us today? (II Corinthians 3: 17)
  4. In verse 18 it says,” But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” What does this mean? (II Corinthians 3: 18)
