QUESTIONS FOR STUDY AND DISCUSSION
1. Read verse 9. What passage of Scripture does Paul quote and why? How does verse 10 help clarify? How does God reveal the truth of the gospel to eyes, ears, and hearts?
2. Read verse 11. Who knows a person’s thoughts? Who knows God’s thoughts? How can a mere human being, then, come to understand God’s thoughts?
3. Read verse 12. What spirit have saints not received? What Spirit have saints received? Why have believers received “the Spirit that is from God,” according to the last part of verse 12? Do you praise God that you can understand the Bible?
4. Read verse 13 in the ESV, NASB, and KJV translations to compare. What do you think Paul is getting at here?
