They are: 1.What are the three features in chapter 9 that make the purpose of the sign more evident? 2.What is the significance of the “Greek” word used in 10.6 and translated “parable”? 3.What are some of the core elements of the Lord’s ministry on earth that relate well to all? 4.Were the Jews united in opposition to Jesus and His teaching?12:41,42, Acts 28:31. and 5.Who are the other sheep? Matt.10:5,6;15:24. The scripture reading was from John 12:37-42 KJV (There was a hardware error towards the end of the lesson in church so the master audio did not get saved.
