What is the question

Mo. 11/3/14: Zechariah 13:6 – 7                  What are the arm wounds?
And one will say to him, ‘What are these wounds between your arms?’ Then he will answer, ‘Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.’
      “Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd,
      Against the Man who is My Companion,”
      Says the Lord of hosts.
      “Strike the Shepherd,
      And the sheep will be scattered;
      Then I will turn My hand against the little ones.
What are the arm wounds? These wounds prophesy crucifixion.
Tu. 11/4/14: Malachi 1:7 – 8                  What is the defiled food?
      “You offer defiled food on My altar,
      But say, ‘In what way have we defiled You?’
      By saying, ‘The table of the Lord is contemptible.’
      And when you offer the blind as a sacrifice, Is it not evil?
      And when you offer the lame and sick,
      Is it not evil? Offer it then to your governor!
      Would he be pleased with you?
      Would he accept you favorably?”
      Says the Lord of hosts.
What is the defiled food? The defiled food is imperfect sacrifice.
We. 11/5/14: Malachi 1:13                  What is sneered at?
      You also say, ‘Oh, what a weariness!’
      And you sneer at it,” Says the Lord of hosts.
      “And you bring the stolen, the lame, and the sick;
      Thus you bring an offering!
      Should I accept this from your hand?” Says the Lord.
What is sneered at? Unacceptable sacrifices are offered, but sneered at.
Th. 11/6/14: Malachi 3:7                  What is the first step?
      Yet from the days of your fathers
      You have gone away from My ordinances
      And have not kept them.
      Return to Me, and I will return to you,”
      Says the Lord of hosts.
      “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’
What is the first step? The first step is return or repentance.
Fr. 11/7/14: Mark 8:36 – 37                  What is the cost of a soul?
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

What is the cost of a soul? The cost is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
