International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson for March 16, 2014Peter’s ReportPsalm 110; Mark 12:35-37; Acts 2:22-36This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. ______ By Sam E. Stone Two passages form the basis of today’s study. The first is from Psalm 110, one of the most quoted psalms in the New Testament. It points readers to the coming Messiah. The other text is part of Peter’s sermon on the Day of Pentecost, where the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy in Christ’s resurrection is clearly shown.
Victory PromisedPsalm 110:1-4David wrote Psalm 110. When his prophetic message was given, Israel was a relatively small and insignificant nation.

There he indicated that he himself is the second of the two Lords mentioned in this Psalm. David spoke of Israel’s king, and it l…

March 16
It Will Seem Simple in RetrospectNumbers 17:1–18:32; 1 Corinthians 1:1–31; Psalm 18:1–12
We’re all faced with difficult tasks. When Paul wrote to the Corinthians, he was forced to confront their spiritual problems, which were slowly destroying God’s workamong them. Paul was thankful for them (1 Cor 1:4–8), but he was also called to a high purpose as an apostle. His calling meant saying what people didn’t want to hear (1 Cor 1:1).

There were divisions among the Corinthians that were going to rip their fledgling church apart, and Paul implored them to make some difficult changes: “Now I exhort you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that … there not be divisions among you, and that you be made complete in the same mind and with the same purpose. For … there are quarrels among you” (1 Cor 1:10–11).

And here’s where something amazing happens that we often overlook. Paul, a confident man and a former Law-abiding Pharisee, could have stated why he was right and moved on…
