Israel Wayne is co-founder of Family Renewal Ministries. He is an author, columnist and conference speaker. He is a father of eight who is passionate about defending the Christian faith and developing a biblical worldview. Some of his books include, 'Homeschooling from a Biblical Worldview' and 'Full-Time Parenting: A Guide to Family Based Discipleship.' He joined Jim to discuss his latest book 'Questions Jesus Asks,' subtitled, 'Where Divinity Meets Humanity.'

According to Israel, Jesus often taught through asking questions. This approach allows people to open up within their own assumptions and can help people answer the questions for themselves.

If Jesus was omniscient, why would he have to ask questions? The Bible says Jesus knew the hearts of people yet still asked questions. We sometimes do the same thing. For example, we may know our children well and their circumstances yet we ask them questions while already knowing the answer in order to draw them out or make them think through the process. Jesus did the same thing with his disciples because he wanted them to deeply consider what their heart condition is and what their beliefs were. In other words, Jesus sometimes used questions to cut through false assumptions and preconceived ideas.

Wasn't Jesus born knowing everything? While there are verses that confirm this, Luke 2 indicates Jesus grew in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and men. Infinite wisdom can't grow yet Jesus is also said to have learned obedience through the things that he suffered. The bottom line here is that none of this takes away from his divinity and that Jesus was in constant communication with the Father. So the only thing he didn't know was the day or the hour of his return.

If all of this sound intriguing, you'll want to review this Crosstalk where you'll learn interesting things about the questions asked by Jesus. You'll begin to see how Israel's purpose was to write a book that points people back to the Bible so that readers can see passages they've read their entire lives and see them in a new and fresh way.
