Matthew Bible Study: Matthew 5:38-42

We will be having our bible study this Wednesday, August 15, at 7:45 pm at Joel and Renay's house. Our passage of Scripture we will be studying is Matthew 5:38-42. As always, come with three observations/questions/thoughts that you want to share with the group. Here are some thoughts to help you as you prepare for tomorrow night:
  1. What is "Lex Talionis"
  2. Look up Ex. 22:21-27; Leviticus 24:19, 20; Deuteronomy 19:19. Read them in context!
  3. This passage is concerned with personal vengeance, not public order. This passage is not teaching that we should let "evil triumph."
  4. What are some points of application our society would do well to glean from this passage?

I will see you tomorrow night!
