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 grammatical-historical-theological method to interpret the Bible. Bible studies are released on Mondays.
Cleansed For a Purpose (Matthew 8:2–4 Sermon)
Sermon preached at Grace Bible Church in Pleasant Hill, CA.
God Meant It For Good (Genesis 50 Bible Study)
In this final chapter, Joseph proclaims God's hand of providence and good purposes.
Jacob's Burial (v.1-14)
God's Good Purposes (v.15-21)
Joseph's Death (v.22-26)
When All Is Said and Done (Genesis 49 Bible Study)
Jacob gives a final word of prophecy to his twelve sons. Most important is the Messianic promise found in verse 10.
Reuben, Simeon, Levi (v.1-7)
Messiah Promised Through Judah (v.8-12)
Eight Other Brothers (v.13-27)
Jacob's Death (v.28-33)
God Will Be With You (Genesis 47-48 Bible Study)
We will examine what Jacob tells Joseph in a final private conversation shortly before Jacob's death.
God Blesses Israel (47:27-28)
Israel Beseeches Joseph (47:29-31)
Israel Blesses Joseph (48:1-12)
Israel Encourages Joseph (48:13-22)
God Rescues Egypt (Genesis 47:1-26 Bible Study)
Jacob identifies himself as a sojourner, and he blesses Pharaoh. The Egyptians are grateful when Joseph delivers them from starvation.
Pharaoh Welcomes Israel (v.1-6)
God Blesses Pharaoh (v.7-12)
God Saves Egypt (v.13-26)
Like Jacob, we as Christians are sojourners. We are also benefactors and God's instruments of blessing. We are slaves to our savior, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Prepared to Die (Genesis 46 Bible Study)
Are you prepared to die? Reuniting with his son Joseph after 22 years of separation, Jacob said, "Now let me die."
Jacob Worshipped (v.1-4)
Jacob Believed (v.5-7)
Jacob Surrounded (v.8-27)
Jacob Reunited (v.28-30)
Jacob Settled (v.31-34)
In this chapter, we learn that we must (1) worship God when life is unclear, (2) trust God which will lead us to action, and (3) live for God so as believers, we can be prepared to die.
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.
