Very affirming of my own conclusions after 30 years preaching.
Very helpful with lots of explanatory heft. Much obliged for this.
Fred Craddock told of an Israeli tour guide who described a Jewish battle, using "we" and "us" to describe the fighting. Dr. Craddock asked whether this was the 1948 or 1967 war, logically assuming the guide had been in the battle. But the man said it was the Maccabean War (fought in 166 BC). Dr. Craddock said, "You tell it as though you were there." The man said, "I was." A good story makes listeners feel the teller was there and makes them think they, too, were there.
Thank you for sharing. Much appreciated & a timely reminder.
Very illuminating! Thank you.
