BSF Study Questions Isaiah Lesson 23, Day 3 Isaiah 50:6-11

Summary of passage:  Jesus says he offered his back to those who beat him and his cheeks.  He did not hide his face from the mocking and spitting because the Lord helps him.  Jesus will not be disgraced nor shamed and will be set like a flint in his resolve to obey.  The Lord will vindicate him.  Because the Lord helps Jesus, let all who dare to accuse and condemn Jesus come forward.  Let them dare for they will be eaten up by moths.  Trust in the Lord and rely on God, fear and obey Him.  All who light their own fire and walk in it will lie down in torment.

Questions:

6a)  Matthew 27:30-31  Romans struck Jesus again and again on the head; they spit and mocked him

Luke 9:51  Jesus went to Jerusalem, knowing He’d suffer.  He set his face like flint, determined to obey

Romans 8:33-34; Acts 2:23  God justifies and vindicates; only God condemns.  God allows Jesus to suffer, not man

John 12:49-50  Father commanded Jesus what to say and how

b)  Personal Question.  My answer:  After we lost everything, we trusted in God’s provision and He has–that and more.

7a)  Fear, obey, walk, trust, rely on God and you will be led to the light.  If you light your own way and walk in your own light, you will lie down in torment.

b)  Our world doesn’t consult God.  It doesn’t fear, obey, walk, trust, or rely on God.  Our world and the people in it listens to themselves.

c)  Personal question.  My answer:  I’ve been lucky.  Even when I strayed God was in the back of my mind.  I was broken and consumed by my brokenness and had no regard for my life or God in it.  Still, God protected me in my brokenness and brought me through to Him again.

Conclusions:  Rely on God and His presence in your life.  If you stay faithful to His word, God will vindicate you.  Do not be tempted to follow your path and not God’s.  For God is always there, whether we want Him to be or acknowledge Him or not.

    I was dismayed, to say the least, about the person who absconed with your material. I pray that ‘they’ recognized the terrible transgression that was committed against the wonderful service you provide.

    I do my lesson then compare my thoughts with your posts. It greatly helps me as I am just learning about the bible. I am in my second year with BSF, fouind Christ about 2 years ago, and am very hungry for knowing the bible. Hopefully, you will be able to continue your good work.

    In Christ,

    a grateful sister

    I am only on my 4th year of BSF, Mny in our church have already been through the complete series once and some reviewing it again.
    Amazing what a person does not know and yet what they can learn with this easy BSF teaching.
    Thank you to all the people with preparation and all who attend.
