Jesus rarely answered questions He was asked, but instead turned the tables by asking a piercing question of His own. Questions Jesus Asks goes through a broad spectrum of these, dealing with issues like morality, suffering, humility, faith, and much more.
- Explore the unique paradox of Jesus' divinity and humanity
- Be challenged by the questions Jesus asks each of us
- Learn more about Jesus and find the answers to your own life's questions.
John 17:3 tells us: "And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." There is no higher purpose in life than the knowledge of God through His Son. Prepare to learn far more about God and the nature of Jesus than you thought was possible. Jesus asks penetrating questions that cut passed the pretense and reach the target of our hearts.

Jackie5 Stars Out Of 5Questions Jesus AsksJune 7, 2017JackieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a concept for a set of books, "Questions Jesus Asks" and its predecessor, "Questions God Asks." It seems so obvious that anyone who is hungry for God would want to meditate on these questions, yet I don't see many (if any) other books on this topic. Author Israel Wayne has conveniently already extracted these questions and presented scholarly research and cross-referencing. The book is both thorough and succinct. It had me so engaged that I actually devoured it in the course of just one day. "Questions Jesus Asks" is a treasure of a find! Highly recommended!
KentuckyMom5 Stars Out Of 5I was challenged all over again by the questions Jesus asked...September 5, 2016KentuckyMomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've always been fascinated with the way Jesus answered so many questions with questions, or provoked people to thought not just with compelling statements, but with probing questions. Maybe that's why I first found the concept of this book so interesting.
But I found so many good lessons here... from simple reminders of God's faithfulness and sovereignty and love, to some pretty heavy doctrine, but presented in a very easy-to-understand way. I consider myself an "ADD reader" -- I'm very easily distracted in reading sometimes -- but I loved the way this book tackles some deep subjects in small, very manageable chunks. It made it a great book for me to read a little at a time as part of my morning devotions, but I also think this would be an excellent book for new Christians or for young people as a clear introduction to some basic doctrine, without being so overly long and wordy as to be overwhelming.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I was challenged all over again by the questions Jesus asked!
eMaeRayAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Doctrine Easily Understandable - Excellent!August 21, 2015eMaeRayAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed reading this book. It starts out with an introduction on the divinity and humanity of Jesus and explores the question, Was Jesus Omniscient?
This is well written, well thought out. Each chapter begins with a personal story to introduce the nature of the question being explored. The chapters are insightful and take a look at the common assumptions, prejudices and inner thoughts associated with each question and the underlying reason Jesus asked them in the first place. All annotated! I love reading the notes in books.
I was initially surprised at the number of questions Jesus did ask! The questions and doctrine dealt with in this book are:
1) Who do people say that I am? (Christology)
2) Didnt you know? (Virgin Birth)
3) Who are my mother and brothers? (Family)
4) What are you seeking? (Discipleship)
5) What will it profit a man? (Money)
6) Who touched me? (Healing)
7) Do you want to get well? (Counseling)
8) Why are you afraid? (Fear)
9) What is your name? (Demonology)
10) What were you arguing about? (Servanthood)
11) Whose image is this? (Government)
12) Has no one condemned you? (Forgiveness)
13) Are you not in error? (Apologetics)
14) Why do you call me Lord? (Lordship)
15) Are you still sleeping? (Prayer)
16) Why have you forsaken me? (Suffering)
17) Do you love me? (Love)
18) Why do you persecute me? (Persecution)
19) How are you to escape from hell? (Hell)
20) Do you believe this? (Resurrection)
And was struck again by the fact that Jesus didnt usually answer questions with an answer but a question! Jesus questions to a question are heart piercing getting right to the main issue and making not only the initial hearer stand up and take notice, but for all who read those questions today.
I appreciated that Wayne uses scripture to validate his points and not mere opinion. He also gives good historical background information so we can understand the thinking and understanding of the people at that time in question (no pun intended). Many traditions and ways of thinking by 1st century Jews are completely lost on us today. This rich background information made each chapter a mini bible lesson on each topic being explored. But dont let that scare you off! Each term is explained and defined well and in easy to understand terms so you dont need to be a bible scholar in order to enjoy and glean much wisdom from this book. It would be easy for those young in the faith or young in years to grasp solid biblical doctrine that elude many in todays churches. The subjects in each chapter are so important for every single person in the church to understand rightly today.
There is also much meat here for the seasoned Christ follower to make this a book worth having on your shelves! Not only in the content of the chapters, but also in the Introduction where he deals with the divinity/humanity of Christ, but also in the two appendices. Even these subjects are dealt with in an easy to understand way for non-biblical scholars.
I received a copy of this book free in exchange for an honest review.
eHomebody5 Stars Out Of 5Taking Deep Theology and Making it DigestibleAugust 5, 2015eHomebodyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Israel Wayne does a fantastic job of delving into the deeper doctrines manifested in the questions Christ asked and making them understandable. He does this by defining and explaining terms and concepts which might otherwise leave the reader in the dust and by drawing not only from Scripture but also the thoughts of great theologians and historians on each topic. This compelling and thought-provoking book would be perfect for Bible study groups, Sunday schools, and family devotions. Also, since the book is divided into twenty short chapters of only six to ten pages each, it would make a perfect personal devotional as well.
mamacurlsAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Thought-provoking and insightful readMay 29, 2015mamacurlsAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is one of the best reads I've come across in a long time - an excellent follow-up to the book "Questions God Asks." Each question asked by Jesus draws us closer to knowing Him and His heart and Mr. Wayne draws the reader into these questions in a way that is thought-provoking and easy to follow. He seamlessly weaves the scripture with his own insight and the words of others to give the reader the feeling that I have the privilege of listening in on a great conversation. The topics cover a wide range from family to servanthood to persecution, all ideas that I know Jesus talked about but presented in a new light. I am looking forward to rereading this book with my teenagers.
