Concise, meticulous Bible studies for Christians. Your facilitator is Pedro Cheung. He is a husband, father, and full-time physician. Pedro believes every word in the original documents of the Bible is verbally inspired and inerrant. He uses a literal, grammatical-historical method to interpret the Bible. Bible studies are released every Monday. In Season 1, we are studying the book of Genesis.
1.20 Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30 Bible Study)
The Parable of the Talents is one of the final parables of Jesus in the book of Matthew. After explaining about the signs that will point to his second return, Jesus explains the importance of being a good steward through the Parable of the Talents. We only have one life to live for Christ, so let's make it count.
1.19 Joseph Made Prime Minister (Genesis 41:37-57 Bible Study)
In the second half of Genesis 41, Joseph is made prime minister. Pharaoh accepts Joseph's counsel. (v.37-45) Joseph fills the store cities.(v.46-49) Joseph names his two sons. (v.50-52) Joseph opens the storehouses. (v.53-57)
1.18 Pharaoh's Dreams Interpreted (Genesis 41:1-36 Bible Study)
God remained with Joseph and remembered him in Potiphar's house (chap 39), in prison (chap 40), and now in Pharaoh's court (chap 41).
Today's episode can be divided into four sections.
Pharaoh troubled by two dreams (v.1-8).
The cupbearer remembered Joseph (v.9-13)
Joseph summoned to Pharaoh (v.14-24)
Joseph interpreted Pharaoh's dreams (v.25-36)
1.17 God Remembers Joseph in Prison (Genesis 40 Bible Study)
In God's providence, two of Pharoah's servants are sent to the same prison as Joseph. These servants have divine dreams on the same night. Joseph interprets the dreams, and these interpretations from God were fulfilled. The cupbearer forgot Joseph, but God still remembered Joseph even in prison.
1.16 Joseph Tempted by Potiphar's Wife (Genesis 39 Bible Study)
Genesis 39 gives the account of Joseph as a slave in Egypt. God gave Joseph success managing Potiphar's house and resisting temptation. It leads to false accusation with Joseph thrown in prison. But God remained with Joseph and showed him steadfast love, favor, and grace. Joseph remained successful even in prison.
1.15 Judah and Tamar (Genesis 38 Bible Study)
We will study a parenthetical chapter: Genesis 38. This chapter is a flashback in Canaan to Joseph older brother Judah. Judah commits three sins: marrying a pagan wife, breaking a promise, and soliciting a prostitute. Tamar is vindicated, and she bears twins. Tamar's firstborn son, Perez, becomes the ancestor of Christ Jesus
A Bible study that puts God’s word first.
Dr. Cheung’s podcast provides an excellent analysis and review of Biblical scripture. While many Bible studies seek to draw out personal interpretations of passages, i.e “what does this passage mean to me?”, Dr. Cheung asks “what is God saying in this passage and how does it apply to me?”.
Dr. Cheung also provides the cultural and historic backdrop to a particular passage. This is crucially important for understanding scripture and its application; after all, can we apply scripture to our lives if we don’t know what it meant to the people it was originally delivered to?
A final note is that the Bible study is not an in-depth/deep dive into original languages and exegetical terminologies. But Dr. Cheung’s studies will certainly draw you to looking deeper into that passage, to conduct your own study about what God is saying in scripture.
