Q’s

“There’s no such thing as a dumb question.” I’ve heard that a few times.

I’ve also set out to prove it wrong more than a few times.

I don’t know what your questions might be these days, but I do hope you’ve got some. Whatever your questions, I’ll bet that they themselves are worth questioning.

Huh?

The people around Jesus had their own questions: Is he THE one? When will his kingdom come? Will it look like we’ve always dreamed?

N.T. Wright grabs it here…

“As was so often the case, Jesus didn’t answer their question directly. Many of the question we as God can’t be answered directly, not because God doesn’t know the answers but because our questions don’t make sense. As C.S. Lewis once pointed out, many of our questions are, from God’s point of view, rather like someone asking, ‘Is yellow square or round?’ or ‘How many hours are there in a mile?’ Jesus gently puts off the question.”

Hmm. I’d never thought of it that way before.
