Study 18 From the Book of Matthew is: Matthew 12:22-50
- Verses 22-32. What do you understand by the ‘unforgivable sin’ interpreted in the light of its context here? Consider the solemnity of these warnings; and note the connection with them of verses 43-45.
- What is taught in verses 33-37 about the dangers of evil or foolish speaking? In what way may a Christian deal with failure at this level?
- Why does Christ refuse to give a special sign to the Pharisees (verses 38, 39)? What is the significance of His references to the Old Testament in verses 40-42? What may we learn from verses 41, 42 and 50 concerning our right response to Christ?
