Have You Met Jesus?

PSALM 34:8    Taste and see how good God is.

An Urban Myth or Parable

An internationally renowned theologian was invited to speak on The Resurrection: Fact or Fiction? After speaking for two and a half hours he concluded there was no such thing as the historical resurrection. The religious tradition of the church was groundless because it was based on a myth about a risen Jesus, who in fact never rose from the dead in any literal sense.

When he had finished, he invited questions from the audience. After a short silence an old, dark skinned preacher with a head of white, short-cropped hair stood up at the back of the auditorium.

"Docta, I got just one question", he said, as he pulled out an apple and began to eat it.
"Now, I ain’t never read them books you've read". . .CRUNCH, MUNCH. . .
"And I can't recite the Scriptures in the original Greek like you", CRUNCH .
"All I wanna know is:  This apple I just ate-------was it bitter or was it sweet?"

The learned theologian paused for a moment and then answered in exemplary scholarly fashion:  

"I cannot possibly answer your question, because I haven't tasted your apple." 

The white-haired preacher dropped the core of his apple into his crumpled paper bag, looked up at the learned doctor and said:

"And you ain’t tasted my Jesus either."
