Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - Sunday, 11/15/09 - Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Gospel Passage
Mark 13:24 “But in those days, after that suffering, the sun will be
darkened, and the moon will not give its light, 25 and the stars will be
falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. 26 Then
they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in clouds’ with great power and glory.
27 Then he will send out the angels, and gather his elect from the four winds,
from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven. 28 “From the fig tree learn
its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you
know that summer is near. 29 So also, when you see these things taking
place, you know that he is near, at the very gates. 30 Truly I tell you, this
generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. 31
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. 32
“But about that day or hour no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor
the Son, but only the Father.

Questions for Discussion:
1. 1. Jesus says, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass
away.” His words are eternal, they last forever. Do you spend time daily listening to the words of Jesus and following Him?

2. Jesus says that only the Father in heaven knows the “day or the hour” of
the end of the world. Jesus said that not even He knew exactly when it would
take place. If even Jesus didn’t know, can any earthly person know? What should your response be to such claims?

3. Since we do not know the day or the hour, it could come anytime.
What should you do to be ready? What can you do each day to prepare yourself for Heaven?
