In Luke 19 we find one of those powerful stories which stirs the imagination and demonstrates the power of God. In that account Jesus enters Jerusalem to the people proclaiming, “Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord…” Because they consider the people’s words blasphemous, the Pharisees ask Jesus to tell the people to be silent. In response to the Pharisees request Jesus makes a statement that has captured believer’s imaginations for nearly 2000 years.
“…I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”
Can you imagine what it might have been like to be there and hear the stones cry out if the people had been silenced?
Today that great New Testament story has been retold by author Paul Bass in a wonderful little illustrated children’s book entitled: The Singing Stone. The story is an easy read and provides a wonderful opportunity to share with your child some valuable life lessons based in fascinating Biblical history.
