Questions Mary Might Have Pondered

Some years ago, Max Lucado, in his book, “God Came Near” listed some questions that Mary may have had in the course of watching Jesus grow up in her home.  I found these interesting then and now.  Perhaps you and I would have had some of these same questions……

  1. 1. What was it like watching him pray?
  2. How did he respond when he saw other kids giggling during the service at the synagogue? 
  1. When he saw a rainbow, did he ever mention a flood?
  2. Did you ever feel awkward teaching him how he created the world? 
  1. When he saw a lamb being led to the slaughter, did he act differently?
  2. Did you ever see him with a distant look on his face as if he were listening to someone you couldn’t hear?
  3. How did he act at funerals?
  4. Did the thought ever occur to you that the God to whom you were praying was asleep under your own roof? 
  1. Did you ever try to count the stars with him….and succeed?
  2. Did he ever come home with a black eye? 
  1. How did he act when he got his first haircut?
  2. Did he have any friend by the name of Judas?
  3. Did he do well in school?
  4. Did you ever scold him? 
  1. Did he ever have to ask a question about Scripture?

  1. Did he ever get angry when someone was dishonest with him?
  2. Did you ever catch him pensively looking at the flesh on his own arm while holding a clod of dirt?
  3. Did he ever wake up afraid?
  4. Who was his best friend? 
  1. When someone referred to Satan, how did he act?
  2. Did you ever accidentally call him “Father”? 
  1. What did he and his cousin John talk about as kids?
  2. Did his brothers and sisters understand what was happening?
