BEREAN STUDIES ON THE ATONEMENT
THE TEXT-BOOK USED FOR THIS COURSE IS SCRIPTURE STUDIES, SERIES V (E)*
*Five years ago DAWN-STUDIES, VOL. V., was reset, and unfortunately the type was not exactly same size as before; and hence page for page they differ. The references given in these Berean Studies apply to the present edition, a copy of which postpaid will cost you but 30c. But keep your old edition, for unfortunately the New Bible helps refer to its pages.
Questions on Study V.—The Author of the Atonement.
(37) If vitality went forth from Jesus to heal the sick, did it cause him proportionate weakness? pain? sickness? And can similar instances be cited of others to a less degree? Pp.125, 126.
(38) Should we say, then, that suffering is the wage of sin which our Lord bore for mankind? P.126, par. 2.
(39) How did our Lord pour out his soul unto death? What part of his experience paid our penalty? P.127, par. 1.
(40) When our Lord cried, “My God! My God! why hast thou forsaken me”? whom did he address? and what did the expression imply? Was such an experience necessary? If so, in what way? P.127, par. 2.
(41) What was the effect of these trying experiences? What purpose was served? Who will ever profit by them and how? P.128.
THE MEDIUM OF THE ATONEMENT
(1) Why do we speak of “the man Christ Jesus” as the Medium of the Atonement rather than refer to the Logos, or pre-human One? P.129.
(2) In considering our Lord’s genealogy as a man, what is the explanation of the conflict between the accounts in Matthew 1 and Luke 3? Explain why they differ and the value of the two, and why one says that Joseph was the son of Heli while the other declares him the son of Jacob? P.129.
(3) If Jesus was a descendant of King David by both Joseph’s and Mary’s lineage, to which is he really accredited? Quote the Scriptures proving the point. Pp.130-132.
(4) Why and how was the line of our Lord’s descent changed from Solomon’s to Nathan’s? P.133.
(5) When Jesus’ mother poetically sang of the putting down of the mighty from their seats and the exalting of those of low degree, to what did she refer? P.133, par. 5.
(6) When did our Lord become the “righteous branch” of David’s stock? When did he become David’s root? What different thoughts do the two words express? P.134, par. 1, 2.
(7) In John 1:1 the Logos is referred to as a God; and in Matthew 22:43,44, we read: “Jehovah said unto my Lord (Master) sit thou,” etc. What is the proper relationship of these statements? When did Christ become Lord both of the dead and living? (Rom. 14:9.) Pp.134-136.
(8) When our Lord is styled the Second Adam, what feature of his work is referred to? P.137, par. 1.
(9) When did our Lord become the Second Adam and how and when will he regenerate the first Adam and his death-stricken family? Pp.137, 138.
(10) Did it cost our Lord anything to become the Second Adam? If so, what? P.138, par. 2; P.139, par. 1.
(11) How will the Lord’s first work for his Church correspond with his whole work for the world by and by?
(12) How is the expression, “root and offspring,” well illustrated in the Scriptural figure of Christ and the Church (a grape-vine)? Note and explain the figures. P.140.
