HERE'S ANOTHER LIFE PRINCIPLE EXPLAINED BY DR. THOMAS Q. ROBBINS

"TELL ME ONE MORE TIME... WHO IS HE?"

Bible Study ~ OCTOBER 14,  2018

Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins ~ Teacher

LIFE PRINCIPLE;  God's timing or agenda is not always then same as ours and Jesus Himself Identifies that He is God 'in human skin' -- Incarnate.   

          The raising of Lazarus from the dead was the familiar biblical account we studied last week.  Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins believes this biblical account is one of the most important passages in the New Testament.  Last week we spent time studying what happened after Lazarus was raised from the dead and the influence he had on his community. 

          Thomas Q. now wants to spend some time with a flash back that details the story of what happened prior to his being raised from the grave and what was happening during this crisis in the lives of Lazarus, Mary and Martha.  Thomas Q gives a clear recounting of the time, place and event. 

           Jesus had made the religious leaders furious in Jerusalem when he identified himself with God – to the point where they tried to kill him by stoning -- but He escaped.  After this experience in Jerusalem, Jesus hears news that Lazarus is sick unto death but delays going to Mary and Martha’s home until Lazarus has died.  Only by delaying in this way could Jesus clearly illustrate that “He is the resurrection and the life”. 

          To be sure, the crux of this event IS the calling of Lazarus from the dead.  We’re all very familiar with that account whether we listened to the lesson last week or not.   But what preceded Lazarus’ coming to life again is also important for two reasons – and Dr. Robbins will deal with those and hopefully give us a fresh understanding of this passage of scripture.

           Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins feels that understanding what occurred before the raising Lazarus is as important as the event itself.  First of all, it tells us about God’s timing or agenda – which is not always our timing or agenda.  Secondly, Jesus used the situation to, once again, identify Himself with God by using the term “I am” in his conversation with Mary. 

          We’re studying John, chapter 11.  The lesson is titled “TELL ME ONE MORE TIME.  WHO IS HE?”

Something To Consider

The greatest witness the Church of Jesus Christ should have in its culture would be in arena of morality and spirituality.  We are living in a society where there is so much ambivalence and confusion. It’s truly a morass of sexual and economic confusion, spiritual and religious perplexity and political and social bewilderment.   The Church has been given a vast team of believers to share their faith and tell of what Jesus Christ has done for them.  How are you fitting into God’s plan for the Church to witness to its culture?  -Thomas Q.
