Ecclesiastes 9:1-10:7

  1. Why, from a Christian standpoint, is the view of life contained in 9:1-10 untenable? Cf. Luke 23:39-43, and note how and why one of the criminals rebuked the other and found hope for himself.
  2. What do 9:11, 12 teach regarding a man’s attitude to natural talents? In what way is the value of wisdom shown in 9:13-10:4?
