Christian leaves Goodwill and enters the home of Interpreter.

Once inside, he encounters various object lessons which are designed to both encourage and warn him.

Note: This chapter is longer than most (16:00) and contains strong warnings.

Discussion Questions:

1. Which object lesson did you find most instructive?

2. Some of the lessons are a bit scary. Why would the Bible record warnings like these?

3. Why do you think Bunyan included these lessons so early in his allegory?

4. Who is a person who provides helpful warnings in your life?

5. Can you think of an example where you didn’t listen?

6. How should we pray in light of these warnings?
