Page 5: What he said, how he lived, and even how he died, all proved that he was truly a just man. At Jesus' death, a Roman army officer, who apparently witnessed both Jesus' trial and his execution, was moved to say: "Really this man was righteous." - Luke 23:47.
Note: The Roman centurion also acknowleged Jesus as the Messiah.
Matthew 27:54 So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, "Truly this was the Son of God!"
Page 5: Even when in excruciating pain, he prayed to his heavenly Father in behalf of the very soldiers who impaled him.
Correction: Jesus Christ died upon a Roman cross not impaled upon a pole.
John 20:25 The other disciples therefore said to him, "We have seen the Lord." So he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."
Webster's Dictionary: impale - to pierce with or as if with something pointed.
Page 6: We cannot build our hope for justice on the shaky foundation of human promises, yet we can trust the word of our loving Creator. That is why Jesus told his followers to keep praying for God's Kingdom to come. (Matthew 6:9, 10)
Correction: The spiritual Kingdom of God came at Pentecost.
Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Page 11: Apart from emphasizing its compassionate nature, Jesus also taught his disciples that divine justice should embrace all people. It was Jehovah's will for him to 'bring forth justice to the nations.' (Isaiah 42:1)
Note: Jehovah has a soul!
Isaiah 42:1 "Behold! My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles."
Page 11: Futhermore, Zephaniah 2:2, 3 reminds us that if we wish to be concealed during the day of Jehovah's anger, we have to "seek righteousness" before that day arrives.
Note: The righteousness of God is through faith in Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:21-22 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe.
Page 12: How will faith in Jehovah's justice help us to look to the future with confidence?
Answer: Assurance comes placing your faith in Jesus Christ and His name.
1 John 5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
Page 12: What, though, does it mean to know Jehovah? To Jeremiah, Jehovah revealed what counted most: "The having of insight and the having of knowledge of me, that I am Jehovah, the One exercising loving-kindness, justice and righteousness in the earth; for in these things I do take delight." (Jeremiah 9:24)
Note: To know the Father a person must first know the Son.
John 8:19 Then they said to Him, "Where is Your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also."
Page 16: Even then, like the father of the prodigal son, they hope that some day the erring one will 'come to his senses.' (Luke 15:17, 18) Thus, elders take the initiative to visit certain disfellowshipped ones to remind them how they can return to Jehovah's organization.
Correction: God is not an organization.
Luke 16:15 And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God."
Page 24: Give of yourself to the organization, and you are guaranteed to have a full, happy life. Whatever you are doing - whether it is pioneering, circuit work, serving with a congregation as a publisher, Bethel service, or missionary work - follow the direction outlined, and value your assignment.
Correction: The Holy Spirit is not an organization.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
Galatians 3:5-6 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?; just as Abraham "believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness."
Page 25: While Jesus was still on earth with his followers, he trained them to be proclaimers of God's Kingdom. In time, their message would reach to the ends of the earth.
Note: Have you received Jesus Christ or the Kingdom of God into your life?
Mark 10:15 "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it."
John 1:12-13 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 13:20 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."
Page 26: Our entire life should be built around our relationship with Jehovah. (Ecclesiastes 12:13; Mark 12:28-30)
Note: Jesus Christ needs to be "first place" in your life!
Colossians 1:16-18 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
