Thought Questions

What are we supposed to examine? How do we examine ourselves? Why do we need to examine ourselves?

Why no leavened bread? What does leaven do? What is the penalty for eating the unleavened bread? What does it mean to be “cut off”?

How do we “purge out the old leaven”? What is “sincerity and truth”? Why do we need sincerity and truth? Where do we find sincerity and truth?

What is the firstborn? Why is the firstborn important and relevant?

What is the “leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees”?

What is the “large house” Paul shows Timothy?

What are the vessels of honor vs. dishonor?
