Answer my questions!
On Google, I discovered Jesus was asked 183 different questions, only directly answering 3.
Instead of responding to questions with concise systematic theological answers, Jesus responded with questions, stories, and parables. Often, Jesus responded with actions demonstrating his power and authority.
“To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them. That is why I use these parables, For they look, but they don’t really see. They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand.” Matt 13:12-13.
Jesus told parables to lead those that would listen to understanding and obedience.
Even with his closest friends, Jesus did not ask, “What’s the trinity? Can you explain substitutionary atonement?”
Rather, he said, “Come, follow me.” (John 1)
Much later did they confess Jesus to be the Christ, only after Jesus asked them “Who am I?” (Matthew 16)
“I don’t know whether he is a sinner,” the man replied. “But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!”
When Jesus heard what had happened, he found the man and asked, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”
The man answered, “Who is he, sir? I want to believe in him.”
“You have seen him,” Jesus said, “and he is speaking to you!”
“Yes, Lord, I believe!” the man said. And he worshiped Jesus.
John 9:25, 35-38
Jesus modeled discovery-based learning in his discipleship.
When Jesus climbed out of the boat, a man possessed by an evil spirit came out from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the burial caves and could no longer be restrained, even with a chain. Whenever he was put into chains and shackles—as he often was—he snapped the chains from his wrists and smashed the shackles. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Day and night he wandered among the burial caves and in the hills, howling and cutting himself with sharp stones. Mark 5:2-5
And after Jesus cast out the demons and healed the man . . .
As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon possessed begged to go with him. But Jesus said, “No, go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been.” So the man started off to visit the Ten Towns of that region and began to proclaim the great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed at what he told them. Mark 5:18-20
