Casting Lots in the Bible

Commemoration of Martin of Tours, Pastor
Veterans Day
November 11, 2009

The Lord be with you

This coming Sunday (Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost) the adult Sunday school class at Lamb of God Lutheran Church (LCMS) will continue its series titled “Puzzlers and Questions about the Bible” in which we examine questions submitted by people concerning the Bible that have puzzled them in the past. This week’s question is: “Why does God use ‘casting lots’ to decide things, which seems like chance or magic or gambling?”

The casting of lots to make a decision is more prevalent in the pages of the Bible than a casual reader might at first think. I found nearly 50 references! So, if this practice has always puzzled you, come to class Sunday. We begin at 9:00 AM. I’ve titled the study, A “Chance” Discovery of God’s Will.

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
