Key Chapters of the Bible

Apr 29, 2022

What does a revival look like? How do we start one? Today we touch upon this important topic as we look at the "Bible Conference" Revival under King Jehoshaphat. We’ll see that when we teach God’s Word faithfully and accurately, God will use His Word to strengthen His people in every way. Join us!


1. How did the unity we saw yesterday in 2 Chronicles 15:9 carry over into the opening verses of 2 Chronicles 17:1-2?

2. In verse 2, who did Jehoshaphat seek? Whose character did Jehoshaphat reflect in verse 3? What role do you think Jehoshaphat’s father King Asa had on the development of his own faith in the Lord?

3. How did the Lord view Jehoshaphat and what did He do for him? Why was the Lord willing to bless kings who followed Him in this way? In other words, whose kingdom were these obedient kings really serving? How do we see this principle unfold in verse 6?

4. What was the spark that lit this revival in verse 7? What was the purpose of this action? What were they teaching in verse 9?

5. In verse 7, how long was Jehoshaphat king before he sent out these teachers? Why do you think it took him this long?

6. In verse 10, what view did the surrounding nations have of Judah? Where did this come from?

7. Who brought tribute to Jehoshaphat in verse 11? Does this surprise you? Why? How does this reflect the principle of Proverbs 16:7 that the Lord will make even our enemies at peace with us?

8. How did the events of verses 12 to 19 bring strength to Judah? Given your answers in Question #3, “whose” kingdom was being strengthened?

9. It has been pointed out that revivals often follow times of darkness. What darkness had been going on in Israel and Judah? How did this darkness prepare them to embrace the light of God’s truths when taught to them?

10. Where do we have darkness in our world? How can you be part of bringing God’s truth to the people around you?
