Who was Jesus?
He was a storyteller. He told stories. He was the world's greatest storyteller. Ask him a question; he'd answer with a story. Give him a crowd of people listening intently; he told them stories. Give him an argument; he'd give you a story. Give him a real tricky, catchy question; he'd give you a real tricky, catchy story.
Have you ever watched a 7-year-old listening- inhaling- a story? Eyes wide, mouth slung open, mind churning, he lives, accepts and believes. He is totally absorbed.
This man-God Jesus. He was a good storyteller. He knew what he was doing...
