2: Moses’ History Lesson – Teaching Plan

Posted on  by Michael Frackeravatar

Key Thought: Just as Israel was to enter the promised land, Moses gave them a history lesson, remember what the Lord has done for you in the past. This should also mean something to us as we prepare to enter the promised land.

1. Have a volunteer read Exodus 32:29-32.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
  2. What does this show about the character of Moses and why God was able to use him?

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.

4. Have a volunteer read Genesis 15:1-16.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
