For each lesson, below are the assignments to do ahead of time. The links will provide you materials to watch and read in preparation for the next class.

5. Habakkuk – Live By Faith

Watch: Overview: Habakkuk (Bible Project Video)

Watch: The Way of the Exile (Bible Project Video)

Read: Habakkuk (Bible Text)

Reflect: Habakkuk is a Biblical Lament (Complaint). It is addressed as a conversation with God rather than preaching to the people. Someone once said, “God would rather have you complain to him than ignore him.” Evaluate, What do you think this statement means? Is it always wrong to complain? Is it wrong to question or doubt God’s purpose? Why or why not? Why does the Bible include lament in the Holy Scriptures?
