Lent 2 Questioning God

  1. 1. LENT 2 Questioning God
  2. 2. Lectionary A Scriptures for LENT 2 Genesis 12:1-4a Psalm 121 Romans 4:1-5, 13-17 John 3:1-17
  3. 3. Now the Lord said to Abram, "Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you.
  4. 4. So Abram went, as the Lord had told him.
  5. 5. "Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness."
  6. 6. I lift up my eyes to the hills— from where will my help come?
  7. 7. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore.
  8. 8. For the promise that he would inherit the world did not come to Abraham or to his descendants through the law but through the righteousness of faith.
  9. 9. Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. He came to Jesus by night and said to him, "Rabbi.”
  10. 10. "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God.”
  11. 11. "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God." Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.
  12. 12. If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?
  13. 13. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
