Honestly the bible is an amazing book. In fact my love for this Holy book ascends almost every day. It’s one book you will have fun with and will save you, not forgetting it will confuse you at the same time.
Personally the Bible is never been my favorite book but it’s one of my best. Some verses leave me confused and chocking with curiosity but some bring fun to me.
The other Sunday afternoon I was so bored to the levels of obedience, I looked to my left but could not find anything to kill my boredom. Not until I turned to my right.
There lay my Good News Bible, on my table. I opened it randomly and guess which book was in my face—the Gospel of John. Absolutely this is one of those books I would advise anyone never to miss reading.
But chapter what and verse what was supposed to kill my Sunday boredom? Honestly I had no idea what verse to read. Until my eyes settled on John 3:1-21 and made my evening.
“Jesus and Nicodemus” was the heading, ‘who the hell is Nicodemus any way?’ my heart debated.
Nevertheless I choose to read on, two to three lines now, Jesus tells Nicodemus, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Nicodemus decides to ask Jesus. “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter his mother’s womb and be born a second time, can he?”
Okay, convince me that this guy was not nuts.
I mean who thinks they can actually ‘de-grow’ their long beards to shortness, re-wind their rough skin to a baby’s smooth skin, then grow toothless, get back to being short, with tiny feet and resort to wearing pampers and drinking milk from the milk bottle, back to the time you weigh 3 to fit again in your mother’s womb!
Ha-ha! Did Nicodemus think like this too? Hell yes! I think he did if he had to be born again and make it to heaven. I can’t help but think that Nicodemus was such a fool! I would be shocked if an African thought like this as well. Bible...Bible…This book is awesome and fun to read.
Then this man we all hate in the Bible, what’s his name again… Judas Iscariot, some call him “Yudasi Isikariyoti”. After betraying our man (Jesus) he comes back after the capture of Jesus to return the silver coins he was paid to sell-out his buddy.
He thought by returning his blood money, he would save J.C (Jesus Christ).
Who takes a bribe and brings it back to save the one they betrayed? “Isikariyoti” was bamboozled. If I were Jesus I would slap him hard in the face and go to jail.
I imagined if it was present day, you would be charged with hooliganism and corruption.
Honestly this was corruption, how could he even be corrupt when Jesus Christ was on earth. Can you imagine?
Oh what about the one we call “zakayo” aka Zachariah. This is comedy in the Bible! Haaaha! This is actually another story! Don’t forget that Jesus was stubborn; his reply to Pontius Pirate was not the best.
How does a king ask you if you are the King of the Jews and all you have to reply is, “so you say” moreover at the hand of death. That was hardcore, tough in the face of death.
Even the wedding of Canan is reason for everyone these days to gets themselves silly because Jesus turned water into wine.None the less, “Don’t forget to read your Bible everyday if you want to grow”.
