Good morning! This is our second week of exploring questions in the Bible. This week we will focus on the questions asked by two individuals: Abijah and Abimelech.
Abijah was king over Judah for three years. Read his story in 2 Chronicles 13.
Abimelech was the king of Gerar who interacted with Abraham and Sarah–and almost got into serious trouble, thanks to Abraham. As you read the scriptures, see if the term “Like father, like son” comes to mind.
As you explore questions, record in your journal or notebook: (1) To whom was the question was asked? (2) What was the response? (3) What difference did the question make?
Have a great week digging deeper!
