"Questions Jesus Asks"


As much as we all think we'd prefer answers, sometimes what we really need is a question. 
A question can cut us right in half, pare us down to our deepest secrets, reveal the truth we already knew.

Jesus asked a lot of question. 
"Who you you think I am?"
"Has no one condemned you?"
"Why have you forsaken me?" 
"What are you seeking?" 

Just a few words apiece, these questions continue to echo through our universe. Yes, they meant something the moment they were uttered, and they still mean something today. In this book, Israel Wayne looks at 20 questions from the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles. From these questions, Israel draws lessons about the lordship of Christ, the forgiveness of sin, the hope of the resurrection, and the sovereignty of God. 

The questions that Jesus asked can move you from just "knowing another thing" about some facet of Christianity to realizing what it means for you. (And I think He knew that when He asked them.)

Each chapter is short and to the point, making this ideal for a Bible study (one chapter per question) or as a faith-enriching read. 

I'll be shelving Israel Wayne's "Questions Jesus Asks: Where Divinity meets Humanity" near another similar book, "Dare to Answer: Eight Questions to Awaken your Faith" by John Busacker. 

I thank the author and Cross Focused Reviews for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
