Teaching the Bible. Lesson 1 part 2. Teaching the Bible is an intrical part in the growth of any Christian. We must keep it simple and easy to understand. In lesson 1, we reviewed Matthew, chapters 1 thru 7. Lets look at chapter 8, verses 1 thru 34. Chapter 8 deals with the power of Christ over infirmities and death and His humbleness as a healer, faith and attempted murder. [Read verses 1-4] Mark questions if needed. Question 1. What is an infirmity? [Ref. Romans 8:26, Luke 7:21,Romans 15:1, 2 Co. 12:1 thru 9.] Question 2. Do infirmities always relate to illness? If no, what else can an infirmity be?

There are many verses of Scripture that deal with Hell, the, Lake of Fire and Judgment. We must understand that the existence of everlasting punishment is real and none shall escape judgment. Many verses in the Bible stand out and this is one. Read. Mat 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

Romans 11:33, Col. 2: 3, Luke 24: 25, Eph. 1:18] Question 8. Do we need all three, ”Wisdom, Knowledge & Understanding”, to live in Christ? Why? Read Verses 28-34. Verses 28-34. Deal with removal of evil spirits & fear of the unknown. [Ref. Read Lev 11:7, Deut 14:8, Isa 66:3] Question 9. In the proceeding references, are Swine unclean and why would Jesus refer to them as a parable? [Note; in the first 8 chapters of this lesson in Matthew did you notice that God, in sections, breaks down, each chapter?] This is what a section is; 1.One of the parts into which something is divided:

Division, member, part, piece, portion, segment, subdivision.

2.A part severed from a whole:
