There are two kinds of fear, a wrong kind and a right one. The Bible is full of passages that tell us to “fear not” e.g. in Genesis 15, Luke 2:10, Revelation 1:17 and John 6:20. This lesson is about the right kind of fear, the fear of God, which the Bible recommends that we ought to have. This fear is clean, wholesome and brings wisdom.
