Sunday School Lesson: A light to the Gentiles Isaiah 49:1-7
In our studies in Isaiah, we have profited as Christians from prophecies intended for the Jews. This is not strange, and the lessons do not come because we have stretched Scripture to make it say what we want it to say. We learn and grow from these prophecies because that is simply the nature of God’s Word.
Chapter 49, though, speaks more directly to Gentiles as Isaiah’s address begins: “Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken,...

Sunday School Lesson: A time to know salvation Isaiah 41:8-10, 17-20; 42:1-4, 9
God always made clear His love for Israel. As His chosen people, God had plans for them, not the least of which was to be a witness for Him in the world.

Sunday School Lesson: People respond to the gospel Acts 9:32-43
The people God calls are usually already busy in His service, and this is how we find the apostle Peter who “passed throughout all quarters.”
As an apostle he would have taken on a whole variety of duties from witnessing to individuals to the business of seeing that the gospel of Christ was truly taught and preached.
It was on such a journey that Peter visited believers who lived at Lydda. While in Lydda, Peter “found a certain ...
Sunday School Lesson Joshua 3:1-13
After the spies returned with their report to Joshua, all that stood between Israel and the Promised Land was the Jordan River.
In making preparations to cross the river, Scripture tells us Joshua rose early one morning and moved the people close to the Jordan’s banks.
There, where everyone could see this obstacle to their entry to the home, they camped for three days. On the third day, Joshua sent his officers throughout the cam...
Sunday School Lesson When Joshua prepared to lead Israel into Canaan, one of the things he did was to send two spies into Jericho. Responsibility always requires careful planning, and Joshua knew that any information they collected would be useful in overtaking the city.
Scripture tells us without explanation that the spies went to Rahab’s house. She is identified not only by her name, but also by her reputation because she is referred to as a harlot.
Sunday School Lesson: Life has a way of changing very quickly Sunday School Lesson

Egypt’s new king had no regard for Joseph and his descendants. You will remember how, under the Lord’s guidance, Joseph won the favor of Egypt’s king in his day because he instituted measured that prevented the people from starving to death.
As long as Joseph was remembered, t...
