Bible Giggles

This morning we were going through John 11 as part of our Bible for today.  The older three kids and I were discussing the story of Lazarus being raised from the dead.  After they told me what they remembered of the story I read some of the verses to fill in some detail and aid in discussion.

As I read verse 44 T suddenly burst into giggles.

Verse 44 (in NIrV) reads, "The dead man came out.  His hands and feet were wrapped with strips of linen.  A cloth was around his face.  Jesus said to them, 'Take off the clothes he was buried in and let him go.' "

I looked at T, with a very surprised and confused look on my face, and asked what was so funny.

She burst out, among her giggles, "Then Lazarus would have walked out ALL NAKED!" 

Needless to say everyone began laughing. 

Not quite the discussion I was going for, but at least she is taking the words of the Bible and picturing the stories in her head....

hee hee, I've had the same thought! :-) chuckle! Some how I think they kept the lower part of his body covered.

I hope you told T (and the others) that in America people are buried fully clothed! So that when they hear about the second coming and we all meet Jesus in the sky, we will have clothes on! (I think! :-} )

Cute story.
