If you could talk to your favorite Bible character, other than Jesus, who would it be and what would you ask them?
In celebration of Episode 100 of The Bible Speaks to You Podcast, I have asked my listeners to think about who their favorite Bible character is and what they would ask them. The answers have been recorded, so you’ll hear them, in their own voices, tell you who they’d like to talk to and what they would ask.
You’ll be inspired by the thoughtful questions that are posed.
This is not just an exercise of curiosity or the human intellect. If it were, it would just be a chase down the rabbit hole of opinions and speculation.
The purpose of this inquiry is for us to learn from the ideas shared here so we can walk in closer relationship with God.
Who is your favorite Bible character and why?
Here are the people from the Bible who are on the hot seat this week to answer some pretty good questions:
- Joseph, son of Isaac
- Jochebed, mother of Moses
- Naaman’s wife’s maid
- John the Baptist
- Mary, mother of Jesus
- Mary Magdalene
- The one leper of ten who came back to thank Jesus for his healing
- The man who was possessed with the Legion of demons
- Rich young ruler
- The prodigal son’s dad
- Young man at Jesus’s arrest who fled naked
- Author of Hebrews
- James, the brother of Jesus
