The eighth grade class from Oaks Christian School did a Bible study using The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus VideoBook. When they had finished, the students had a number of questions for the author. Rather than just sending their questions over email, the class made a video!
We’re pleased to have John Cross reply, also by video. Over the next few weeks, we will post the series of video questions along with John’s replies.
The first Q&A video features a question about spiritual warfare. We were charmed by Molly, who asked if John had encountered any spiritual attacks while he was filming the Stranger VideoBook. Though he didn’t experience any overt spiritual attacks, John pointed out that the Bible tells us we are waging spiritual battle daily. Each day, we have to make choices in life and the Bible says we can either make wise choices or foolish ones.
The choices we make are part of the daily spiritual battle we each fight. In the video, while near Nablus (biblical Shechem), John points to two large visual aids that God used to teach this truth. There in the background are Mt Gerizim and Mt Ebal, the mountains of blessing and cursing (see Deut 11:26-32). They are God’s reminders that in our daily spiritual battle, wise choices lead to blessings while foolish choices bring curses on our lives.
