Multiple Choice Test (John 1:29)

If I gave a multiple-choice test to a complete stranger and asked them the following question, what would be the correct answer?

 

Which of the following statements is true?

  1. Hawaii does not have an airport
  2. Wild kangaroos live in the forest of one of the main islands
  3. Poi is an inedible building material
  4. All native Hawaiians live in grass huts

 

As incredible as it may seem, the true answer is B. Wild kangaroos still live in the Kalihi valley on the island of Oahu. Although I have never seen them, my medical school classmate photographed one during a trek through the remotest part of the valley. Several kangaroos arrived in the early 1900s as part of a private zoo. Unfortunately, they escaped but two managed to survive and breed. Today, the population is estimated to be at least 75. 

 

Behold, the kangaroos of Kalihi valley! A true fact!

 

Now, how about another multiple-choice test.

 

Which of the following statements is true?

  1. God was born as a human baby to a young virgin woman
  2. God was hungry and tired after a long journey
  3. God bled and died, executed as a common criminal
  4. God’s hands and feet were pierced and the side of his chest has a spear wound

 

The answer is all. 

 

If I had to create a story about God, I would create an omnipotent Being that would eliminate all of His enemies. He would have no weaknesses and nothing could ever hurt Him or cause Him discomfort. Instead, God revealed Himself in the most unexpected manner. God loved us so much that He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ, to reconcile me and all of humanity to Him. We are all hopelessly lost in our sins and utterly incapable by our own efforts to restore the perfect relationship with God, shattered by sin. God knows this and took the initiative to do this, saving us only by His grace and mercy. 

 

…Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

John 1:29 (ESV)

 

A true fact!

 

The virgin birth, hunger, pain, suffering, and execution. The truth is more amazing than anyone would have ever believed! A true fact!

 

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
