The first question recorded in the Bible was asked by the serpent in Chapter 3 of Genesis. Other questions follow.

In Psalm 8 God is asked the question, “What is man that you are mindful of him?”

It is hardly surprising that there are questions in the Bible. We ask questions in order to learn.

Jesus asked and answered questions.  In my A to Z Challenge of 2015 I wrote about the names of God. I couldn’t find a name beginning with Q. Instead I suggested that Jesus (believed by Christians to be the Son of God and the second person of the Trinity of God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit, three persons and one God) was the Question-setter.

An example of Jesus’ use of questions may be found in Chapter 15 of Matthew’s Gospel. There are plenty of other examples elsewhere in the Gospels. Jesus asked Bartimaeus a question.  My M post is also about questions.

This year for the A to Z Challenge I have taken my 2013 Challenge as a starting point for most of the posts. I have written a post based around something or usually someone from the Bible. Sometimes it is a fictional story, for example when I have added some back stories (as a writing exercise). Sometimes it is a summary.

 I hope my readers will be challenged to consider the original texts in more depth. (If only to discover what liberties I have taken with them!)
