A boy went to Sunday school for the first time and his teacher taught about the bondage of the Israelites. When the boy returned home, his mother asked him what his teacher taught him. He dramatically tried to explain the lesson. He said, “She told us about the Egyptians and Moses. The Egyptians were chasing Moses and the rest of God’s people. They came to the Red Sea and Moses built a temporary bridge across the water and God’s people hurried across it to the other side. Then Moses blew up the bridge along with the bad people.” The mother asked, “Did your teacher really teach you that?” The boy realized his mother was not exactly pleased with that version of the story. So he said, “Well mother, she didn’t teach it exactly like that, but if I told you what she said you surely wouldn’t believe it!”
The boy heard what he thought was an unbelievable story. In time, if he continued to attend Bible class, he would learn there is evidence available to believe God’s version of any story in the Bible (Hebrews 11:1). God gives us evidence that we can check out for ourselves to see the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21). The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus did happen (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). We can believe this life changing story!
