A look at the questions Jesus asks us—which enrich our understanding and faith. In the Gospels, when people asked Jesus a question, he often replied with one of his own: “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “Why do you call me good?” British author Conrad Gempf invites readers to look at these questions and discover Jesus’ motivation. What could the second person of the Trinity want to know that he doesn’t already? Gempf concludes that Jesus wants to know where we stand. He doesn’t need to know more facts; he wants to know us.
