Things to look for as you read this week:

  • Who helps Joseph of Arimathea bury Jesus?
  • What does "doubting Thomas" call Jesus when he sees Him after the resurrection?
  • What two Old Testament figures does James point to as he insists that works must accompany faith?


    Last week's answers:
  • When Jeremiah sent God's message to King Jehoiakim, what did the king do? (He cut the words from the scroll, bit by bit, and threw them into the fire.—

    Jeremiah 36:22-23)
  • After Judah is taken into captivity in Babylon, Jeremiah preaches to the remnant who plans to flee to Egypt. What is their response? (They refuse to listen.—Jeremiah 43:4)
  • In the book of John, Jesus makes seven "I AM" statements. Which one is most meaningful to you? (Personal response)

    The seven statements are:
  • I AM the Bread of Life—John 6:35
  • I AM the Light of the World—John 8:12
  • I AM the Door—John 10:9
  • I AM the Good Shepherd—John 10:11
  • I AM the Resurrection and the Life—John 11:25-26
  • I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life—John 14:6
  • I AM the Vine—John 15:5
