Sunday School LESSON - July 5, 2020

June 30, 2020 - July 5, 2020   Time: 9:00 AM
Location: Saint John Baptyist Church, 3404 West Beltline Boulevard, Columbia, SC 29203

"Wisdom's Vindication"
Background: Matthew 11:1-19

Devotional Reading: Matthew 10:1-14
Keep in Mind
"The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners.  But wisdom is justified of her children." (Matthew 11:19 KJV)

Aim for Change
By the end of the lesson, we will: EXPLAIN how the different actions of Jesus and John the Baptist both displayed divine wisdom. FEEL, encouraged to behave in ways that follow Jesus even when they are contrary to people's expectations, and REVIEW our own behavior to determine whether it reflects godly wisdom.

Focal Verses: Matthew 11
As John’s disciples were leaving, Jesus began talking about him to the crowds. “What kind of man did you go into the wilderness to see? Was he a weak reed, swayed by every breath of wind?

Or were you expecting to see a man dressed in expensive clothes? No, people with  expensive clothes live in palaces.
Were you looking for a prophet? Yes, and he is more than a prophet.
10 John is the man to whom the Scriptures refer when they say, ‘Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, and he will prepare your way before you.’
11 “I tell you the truth, of all who have ever lived, none is greater than John the Baptist.  Yet even the least person in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he is
12 And from the time John the Baptist began preaching until now, the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing,and violent people are attacking it
13 For before John came, all the prophets and the law of Moses looked forward to this present time.
14 And if you are willing to accept what I say, he is Elijah, the one the prophets said would come.
15 Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand!
16 “To what can I compare this generation? It is like children playing a game in the public square. They complain to their friends,
17 ‘We played wedding songs, and you didn’t dance, so we played funeral songs, and you didn’t mourn.’
18 For John didn’t spend his time eating and drinking, and you say, ‘He’s possessed by a demon.’
19 The Son of Man,on the other hand, feasts and drinks, and you say, ‘He’s a glutton
and a drunkard, and a friend of tax collectors and other sinners!’ But wisdom is shown to be right by its results.”
