Standard Lesson Commentary
International Sunday School Lessons
Uniform Series international Bible Lessons for Christian Teaching
April 6th - Lesson 6 - Jesus Cleanses the Temple
Devotional Reading: Psalm 27:1-5
Background Scripture: Isaiah 56:6-8; Jeremiah 7:8-15; Mark 11:15-19
Printed Text: Isaiah 56:6, 7; Jeremiah 7:9-11; Mark 11:15-19
Key Verse: Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? - Jeremiah 7:11
Central Thought: The temple in Jerusalem was designed to be a place of joy, worship, and prayer, but it was corrupted by human sin. Each Christian, as “a temple of the Holy Ghost,” must be diligent to resist spiritual corruption.
Thought to Remember: Keep God’s temple clean.
April 13th - Lesson 7 - A Messianic Priest-King
Devotional Reading: Hebrews 7:11-19
Background Scripture: Jeremiah 23:5,6; Zechariah 6:9-15; John 19:1-5; Hebrews 7:13
Printed Text: Jeremiah 23:5,6; Zechariah 6:9-15; John 19:1-5
Key Verse: The soldiers said, Hail, King of Jews! and they smote him with their hands. - John 19:3
Central Thought: Jesus came as a Messiah, priest, and king to fulfill the roles described in advance by the prophets. This was God’s plan for our salvation: a king would die, rise again, and be exalted to reign forever.
Thought to Remember: We serve a king who suffered for us.
April 20th - Lesson 8 - The Third Day
Devotional Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:12-20
Background Scripture: Hosea 6:1-3; Luke 24:1-12
Printed Text: Hosea 6:1-3; Luke 24:1-12
Key Verse: Remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. - Luke 24:6,7
Central Thought: Jesus’ resurrection opens the door to eternal life for all (Philippians 3:10-12). This is not an abstract idea, but truth based on historical events in the life of Jesus and foreseen by Old Testament prophets like Hosea.
Thought to Remember: We await our own resurrections because we know He lives.
April 27th - Lesson 9 - From Suffering to Glory
Devotional Reading: John 1:10-18
Background Scripture: Isaiah 52:13-53:12; Luke 24:25-27, 44-50
Printed Text: Isaiah 53:3-8; Luke 24:25-27, 44-47
Key Verse: Beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. - Luke 24:27
Central Thought: The entirety of the Old Testament bears witness to the Messiah. Without this Old Testament background, our understanding of Jesus and His purpose would be limited and inadequate.
Thought to Remember: Our salvation in Jesus was prophesied.
