bedtime stories

“When we read the Old Testament, we read the Bible Jesus read and used. These are the prayers Jesus prayed, the poems he memorized, the songs he sang, the bedtime stories he heard as a child, the prophecies he pondered. He rendered every “jot and tittle” of the Hebrew Scriptures. The more we comprehend the Old Testament, the more we comprehend Jesus.”

-Phillip Yancey

For some reason it strikes me as funny to think about Jesus hearing bedtime stories as a child. That is a really cool picture that helps me understand the humanity of Jesus.

And I really like this quote.
