Robert Roe recently compiled a list of offbeat descriptions of famous movies and characters. Here is a sampling of that list:
The Wizard of Oz—“American invades foreign land, kills local leadership and struggles to find an exit strategy.”
The Hunger Games—“Older sister ruins younger sister’s chance to be on television.”
Titanic—“Everybody tries the ice bucket challenge.”
Lord of the Rings Trilogy—“Group spends 9 hours returning jewelry.”
Batman—“Billionaire tries to improve his city by dressing like a bat and punching people.”
While these descriptions may be partially true, they all fall woefully short of being effective explanations of what is being described. Let us be careful that we don’t base our understanding of Jesus on a description that only has a sliver of truth. Let’s really dig into the Scripture and allow Jesus to reveal himself to us as he actually is.
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”—John 14:6.
