Key Quotes

 

  • 10:34 - "Jesus had the entire Scripture memorized and better understood than any human being in all of human history. If that's all that He needed, then why did God break all the rules at the River Jordan and say to Him, You are my beloved son, out loud so everybody could hear. I mean, if He needed it, I need it."
  • 16:45 - "He asks questions to disrupt us. We're not intended to have the answer in that moment, we're intended to flush the answer out. And I realized very quickly, I cannot discover the answer to this question in isolation. It has to be, can only come through other men. Because in that moment, not only was He helping me realize the root of all of my anger. He was helping me understand the root of all men's angers and fears and pornography and in addiction to liquor and all this other stuff is just because life is hard, because it's up to me."
