The pages of the New Testament contain some 340 questions Jesus asked: “Who are my mother and my brothers?” “Now which of them will love him more?” “Why are you so afraid?” “Do you still have no faith?” “Do you want to get well?” “Who do people say that I am?”
Why did Jesus ask such questions? Surely He didn’t lack information. Were they simply rhetorical? Is there more behind the questions of Jesus than meets the ear?
After 20+ years of study, Chris Bozung suggests that Jesus never asked a question because he needed to know the answer. Jesus’ questions pierce the heart, quicken the thoughts, convict the conscience, and evoke faith. They are Uncommon Questions from an Extraordinary Savior.
