They’re in for a surprise! Even young people who have grown up in Sunday school may not have heard—let alone studied—some of the more sensational stories in the Bible. Have they ever wrestled with why Jesus placed spit on a blind man? Have they ever tried to understand Ezekiel’s incredible description of God?
