  • knows everything, asked him aquestion.
  • 00:06:40.983 --> 00:06:50.226
  • Why would God who knowseverything ask me a question?
  • 00:06:52.862 --> 00:07:02.271
  • Do you really think there'sanything you can teach Jesus?
  • 00:07:03.739 --> 00:07:09.812

  • When a teacher asks the studenta question it is for the student
  • 00:07:17.954 --> 00:07:24.327
  • to evaluate his advancement.
  • 00:07:24.360 --> 00:07:29.765
  • So he asked him a question.
  • 00:07:29.799 --> 00:07:31.667
  • It's a very simple question.
  • 00:07:31.701 --> 00:07:36.239
  • Wilt thou be made whole?
  • 00:07:36.272 --> 00:07:42.912

  • 00:07:45.515 --> 00:07:50.419
  • do it in front of all of thesepeople and on the internet.
  • 00:07:50.453 --> 00:07:54.757
  • But respectfully, sir, why wouldyou ask me, wilt thou be made
  • 00:07:54.790 --> 00:08:00.429
  • whole when you see what's wrongwith me and you know how long
  • 00:08:00.463 --> 00:08:05.001
  • it's been wrong?
  • 00:08:05.034 --> 00:08:06.702
  • Why would you ask me wilt thoube made whole?
  • 00:08:06.736 --> 00:08:10.773
  • I didn't come here to take atest, Jesus.
  • 00:08:10.806 --> 00:08:14.577
  • But it is not the question thatis the most provocative.
  • 00:08:22.018 --> 00:08:28.591
  • To me as amazing as the questionis, as complex and complicated
  • 00:08:28.624 --> 00:08:33.129
  • as it is.
  • 00:08:33.162 --> 00:08:34.931
  • I with all diligence will steparound the temptation to spend
  • 00:08:34.964 --> 00:08:38.401
  • time dialoguing about thequestion, because the question
  • 00:08:38.434 --> 00:08:41.270
  • is revelation within itself.
  • 00:08:41.304 --> 00:08:43.973
  • I must move quickly to the man'sanswer because the power of the
