6: For What Nation Is There So Great? – Teaching Plan

Posted on  by Michael Frackeravatar

Key Thought: Israel got into trouble when they ignored certain aspects of the law, but also adding to it by bringing in practices not specified in the law.
November 6, 2021

1. Have a volunteer read Deuteronomy 4:1,2.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
  2. Why did God give them the statutes and judgments right away?
  3. Personal Application: Even though we wouldn’t take someone’s clothes for surety for debt today, is there a principle that still applies to us? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your relatives states, “Weren’t the statutes and judgments part of the law and Moses that was nailed to the cros and not applicable to us today?” How would you respond to your friend?

2. Have a volunteer read Deuteronomy 4:4..

  1. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
  2. Who were the “all” that were still alive before Moses that he referred to?
  3. Personal Application: What shows the difference between those who fell into sin, and those who didn’t? How can we keep ourselves in the right group? Share your thoughts
  4. Case Study: One of your friends states, “The New Testament says all Israel shall be saved. Does this mean all Jews shall be saved? All Christians will be saved? Or is this referring to something else?” How would you respond to your friend?

3. Have a volunteer read Deuteronomy 4:5-9.

  1. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
  2. Why did the Lord say to Israel what He did here?
  3. Personal Application: Do you feel like God has given you a special calling? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: One of your relatives states: “Do you think the Lord has blessed America because it has made its laws based on Biblical principles and the Ten Commandments? Can God continue to bless if we change or pervert or turn away from those principles?“ How would you respond to your relative?

4. Have a volunteer read Matthew 15:1-9.

  1. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
  2. How does this connect to not adding to or subtracting from God’s statutes and judgments?
  3. Personal Application: How do we today add to or take away from the word and get stuck in traditions that lead us away from God’s commands? Share your thoughts.
  4. Case Study: Think of one person who needs to hear a message from this week’s lesson. Tell the class what you plan to do this week to share with them.
