Depression: What Does The Bible Say

Depression: What Does The Bible Say

Depression can be more than just ‘feeling sad.’

Yes, depression involves sadness. But clinical (or major) depression is not limited to a particular ‘mood’ or emotional state. Clinical depression is a persistent, recurring condition that may stem from our nature or physiology – and not just our circumstances. It can strike when things are going poorly, but it can also strike when they’re going well.

In today’s study, we’ll see what the Bible has to say about depression. Is there hope for the hurting?

Questions That We’ll Address:

1) How does a feeling of ‘sadness’ differ from ‘clinical depression?’

2) Did any of the men and women of the Bible suffer from depression? Who?

3) What encouragement does Christ offer for the depressed? What does He say?
