Early in my nursery career, I complained to my boss about something I felt was unfair. “Why did you do that” was my question of complaint. My boss answered my question with the question, “Put yourself in my shoes, what would you’ve have done?” Through his question, my boss asked me to consider his point of view rather than just my own.
My boss’ tactic of answering a question through asking a question wasn’t new; Jesus did it on a regular basis. In fact, a careful reading of the four Gospels (Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John) shows that Jesus often answered questions with a question. Through his question-answer, Jesus invited the person to reconsider his or her point of view.
Since many of the questions asked of Jesus 2000 years ago continue to be asked by you and me today, we’ll look at four of Jesus’ question-answers in order to reconsider our point of view on life and faith. Beginning January 8th, we’ll talk about Jesus’ answer of faith to the hardships of our life. I hope you can make this four-week series; it can answer the questions you’ve been asking for so long.
