Search The Scriptures — Study 41 — Luke 16:14-31
Study 41 of "Search The Scriptures” Is:
1. For what was the rich man punished? In what way does this parable reinforce the lesson of verse 9?
2. What does the parable teach about the reality of future punishment and the means of avoiding it? What ought men to be doing now? And why?
Note. Verses 16, 17. The ministry of John the Baptist marked the end of the Jewish prerogative. Men of every race and kind could from now on press into the kingdom. Yet the moral law remained unchanged; e.g., verse 18, the sanctity of marriage.
