Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: July 22, 2016

You’re a fifth grader studying astronomy.  The day you read about the first mission to the moon, you and your classmates pepper the teacher with space-travel questions.  “What does moon dust feel like?”  “Can you swallow when there’s no gravity?”  “What about going to the bathroom?”  The teacher does the best she can but prefaces most replies with, “I would guess…”  or “I think…” or “Perhaps….”  How could she know?  She’s never been there.  But the next day she brings a guest who has.  Neil Armstrong enters the room.  Yes, the “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” Neil Armstrong.  “Now ask your questions,” the teacher invites.  And Astronaut Armstrong answers each with certainty.  He knows the moon; he’s walked on it.  No speculation or hesitation – he speaks with conviction.

So did Jesus
