Christ, the Savior of the World

by Scarlett Stough

1. Psalm 69; Psalm 28. What things do you think the psalmists wanted to be saved from? What do you want to be saved from?

2. Genesis 3:15; Isaiah chapters 50-53. What did God promise to save people from? How did he say he would do it?

3. Leviticus 12:6-8; Luke 2:25-38; Luke 2:36-38. How do you think Simeon and Anna the prophetess were able to recognize the baby Jesus as Israel's and the world's savior?

4. Hosea 13:4; John 1:1-18. Why was it necessary for the Messiah to be both Son of Man and Son of God to become our Savior?

5. John 20:29; John 4:39-42. Do you see any parallel between the Samaritans who believed the woman's message about Christ and your own experience of belief and acceptance of Christ? If so, what parallel or if not, what has been your own experience?

6. Matthew 24:13; Revelation 21:7-8; 22:12-16. After belief and acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior, what did Jesus say we needed to do to receive the gift of salvation?

7. As any other biblical topic, these short Bible study guides do not cover all the pertinent scriptures. State any other scriptures on salvation you would like to discuss and perhaps have questions about.
