Jesus used questions to make disciples so should we!

“Jesus asks 307 questions in the Gospels. He’s a master at asking questions. If we are going to become more like Jesus and do what He did, we must become careful and wise in asking good questions as well. But: Jesus uses questions differently than we commonly do today.
We ask questions for information; Jesus asks questions to provoke transformation.
We ask questions for answers; Jesus asks questions for awareness.
Jesus asks questions to confront the listener with their own thought process, preconceptions, assumptions, and beliefs.”
Exert by Matt Tebbe
