DC 101 - Week 8 - Law and History

We've learned about the character traits of a disciple of Jesus Christ, looked at the three Persons of the Trinity. taken a spiritual disciplines retreat, taken an overview of Scripture, and received an introduction to Scripture. This week, we pay close attention to the historical books of the Old Testament and consider the purpose of the law. Here's what your workload might look like, broken down into five days:

Monday - Read Galatians, 1 Corinthians 1-6, and Proverbs 13
Tuesday - Read "Seven Keys to Understanding Scripture" by Tremper Longman III and giggle at the cartoon illustration of The Song of Solomon by Den Hart on page 140 of your workbook.
Wednesday - Memorize 2 Timothy 2:15 - "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth" - and review previous memory verses (2 Peter 3:18, Ephesians 2:10, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Galatians 5:16, and 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Thursday - Answer questions 1a-b, 2a-b, and 3a-c (7 questions).
Friday - Answer questions 4a-d and 5a-b (6 questions).

The optional question on 149 refers to reading chapters 7-9 of "The Saving Life of Christ." Should we be prepared to discuss on Monday?

I'm not sure if Ivan will be discussing this one or not. It's a relatively short read, only 5 or 6 pages if you do the minimum portion, and there are some thought-provoking quotables to consider....
