Unit 16, Session 1: Daniel and His Friends Obeyed God

December 7, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, This week we began a 3-session story arc spanning much of Daniel’s life. God’s people had been warned by the prophets: “Turn from your sin, and turn back to God!” But the people did not listen. The nation of Judah was consumed by idol worship; the kings did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. So God kept H... Keep Reading

Dear Parents, Shortly after God had rescued the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, He made a covenant with them at Mount Sinai. The terms of the covenant are found in Exodus 19. God said through Moses, “If you will listen to Me and carefully keep My covenant, you will be My own possession out of all the peoples, … and you will be My k... Keep Reading

Jeremiah and Captivity- God Called Jeremiah

November 6, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, The people of the Southern Kingdom of Judah were afraid. They had seen the Assyrians destroy the Northern Kingdom and now they were not sure if they would be able to survive. God called on Jeremiah to speak to the people. “I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born.” These words fro... Keep Reading

God the Pursuer- Joel, Prophet to Judah

October 30, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, This week we turned our attention back to Judah and picked up the big story with God’s people in quite a bind. The prophet Joel spoke to the Southern Kingdom of Judah at a time when the nation faced a crisis. The land had been invaded by locusts; swarms of the insects had devastated the plants. Judah was also affected by a seve... Keep Reading

God the Pursuer- Jonah, Prophet to Ninevah

October 24, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, Last week, we saw Hosea’s amazing love for his unfaithful wife that provided a picture of God’s greater love for His unfaithful people. This week, we looked at Jonah’s [1] lack of love as a contrast. The Book of Jonah is not primarily about Jonah and a big fish. While those elements are important, Jonah’s acc... Keep Reading

God the Pursuer- Hosea, Prophet to Israel

October 19, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, This week, we encountered the curious instructions God gave the prophet Hosea. God sent the prophet Hosea to speak to Israel a message of God’s hatred toward sin and of His coming judgment. God also sent Hosea to bring a message of love—a love that never gives up. God used Hosea’s own life to show Israel what a neve... Keep Reading

God the Revealer- Hezekiah, Judah's Faithful King

October 12, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, He’s a chip off the old block. Like father, like son. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. These idioms exist because sons tend to look and behave like their fathers. When it came to Hezekiah and his father, Ahaz, however, the two were far from similar. When Ahaz was king of Judah, he did not respect God, God’... Keep Reading

God the Revealer- Isaiah Called God

October 6, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, King Uzziah’s death marked the end of an era. His reign had been long and prosperous. Uzziah became king when he was 16, and he reigned over Judah for 52 years. Uzziah had listened to the prophet Zechariah; he feared God, and God made him prosper. But Uzziah’s pride got the best of him. (See 2 Chron. 26:16.) God struck Uz... Keep Reading

God the Revealer- Isaiah Preached about the Messiah

October 6, 2016 | by: Jessica Wilson | 0 Comments

Dear Parents, The Book of Isaiah contains four Servant songs—poems about the servant of God. (See Isa. 42:1-4; 49:1-6; 50:4-9; 52:12–53:13.) In these poems, the prophet Isaiah describes God’s plan of redemption. We see a vision of the promised Messiah, the innocent substitute who would suffer for the sake of sinners. Through Jesu...
