Two words. John 11:35. It is the shortest verse in the entire Bible and it reads, "Jesus wept." Have you ever considered the monumental truth behind that verse? Jesus, fully man and fully God, found himself in the midst of human tragedy -- the death of a dear friend -- the death of a dear friend -- and he did what we would do. He cried.
In this utterly profound book, Bruce Marchiano explores the head and heart of Jesus to answer questions hurting people have been asking for generations. Where was Jesus when I buried my husband? What was Jesus' reaction when my son was paralyzed? Or when my baby died? Or when the bus overturned? Or the tornado hit? When the terrorists struck on September 11, how did Jesus respond? The answer just might blow you away. Jesus wept.
