BSF Study Questions John Lesson 10, Day 2: John 6:41-42

Summary of passage:  The Jews began to grumble, questioning how Jesus who is the son of Joseph, a common carpenter, could be the Son of God.


3)  That Jesus’ birth was a miracle from God and that it fulfilled Old Testament prophecy.  All the miracles Jesus performed, God’s blessing when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

4)  Essential.  If you don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God and that he was just a man, then you won’t have eternal life.  If Jesus Christ was not virgin born, then He was not God in the flesh and was therefore only a man possessing the same sinful nature that every person has.  God put aside His eternal glory to become man.  God revealed Himself in Jesus.  To not believe in Jesus (and thus his heavenly nature) means you don’t believe in God.  Consequences:  Damned for eternity.

Conclusions:  Shortest and easiest lesson thus far.

End Notes:  Six times in this immediate context Jesus says that he ‘came down from heaven’ (6:33, 38, 41, 50, 51, 58).  Why would anyone say this if it were not true?

The Jews are probably the Galileans here.

  1. In the context of coming together as God’s people to pray for our nation, is BSF helping believers with the effects of the 2016 election? My prayer group is committing to 2 Chronicles 7:14 and praying for our nation and our leaders. We are focusing on “If MY people, who are called by MY name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.”

    I don’t want to discuss politics but I see and hear other believers’ need to band together and pray for our nation. We cannot ignore the “elephant in the room” that weighs heavily on believers’ hearts. Can or does BSF provide a forum to “gather as 2 or 3, in His name”, and trust our anxious fears and hearts to Him.

    Can BSF help believers to do this if they don’t have other small groups to call upon for this kind of prayer?
