WEEK 1  In the Beginning (4).jpg


John 1:29-31, John 1:35-37, and 1 Peter 1:17-20

Last week we saw God point to Christ through a temporary system of fatal sacrifices to rectify sin. Today we see the first glimpses of Jesus being part of that plan.

  • Pray for God to reveal His truth to you

    • Recall / review what you read last week, focusing on the sacrifice of a perfect lamb.

    • Read John 1:29-31, John 1:35-37, and 1 Peter 1:17-20

    • What new thing do you learn in these passages?

    • How do these passages, along with last week’s reading, deepen your understanding of God and His plan?

    • What challenges or questions do you have?

  • Praise God for His plan and ask Him to help you understand His plan for you.

Isaiah 52:13-53:12, John 3:14-15, 8:28, 12:38, ROMANS 10:16, & 15:21

In addition to God revealing His plan through sacrifices, He also revealed Christ through words of prophecy. Isaiah recorded these words around 700 BC, 700 years before Jesus came to the
earth in the form of a man. For just a moment, consider what the world looked like in 1323. How could anyone then describe in detail an event that would occur this year, 700 years later? How could they even begin to imagine our world? It can only happen if it is coming from the One who is the beginning and end and sees all time at once.

  • Pray for your time to be fruitful.

  • Read Isaiah 52:13 - 53:12

    • What do you learn about Jesus’ death from 53:10?

  • Now, read the following scriptures and compare them:

  • Pray, talking to God about what is interesting or challenging in these passages.

Day 2


Today we continue to look at prophecy written 700 years prior to Jesus’ crucifixion showing God’s plan of Jesus’ death on the cross for the payment of our sins.​

  • Pray for new insight and understanding.

  • Reread Isaiah 52:13 - 53:12, then read the following scriptures and compare them:​

  • Pray, asking God how this should affect your daily actions.

​Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Matthew 8:17, 27:38, Acts 8:32-34, 1 peter 2:22-25


Psalm 22:1-18, Matthew 27:39, 27:43, 27:46, john 19:23-24, 19:31-37.

For just a minute, consider these people and opening lines

  • Fresh Prince: “Now this is the story all about how / My life got flipped, turned upside down…”

  • Gloria Gaynor: “At first I was afraid, I was petrified / Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side…”

  • Beatles: When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me / Speaking words of wisdom, let it be…”

Sorry for the songs running through your mind now, but that is the point. Today we see a song, written by David. And, just as the opening lines of the songs above brought the entire song to mind, Jesus shares the opening line to an important song for those to remember as He suffers on the cross.

    • What do you learn about yourself as a human?
