Preacher Who Visited The 6th Grade Boys Class


Maybe you’ heard about the preacher who was visiting various classes during the Sunday School Hour to see how they were doing. One Sunday he visited the class of 6th grade boys. They were talking about things in the O.T. He listened for a while and then asked, “Who knows who knocked down the walls of Jericho?” Two boys answered, “Preacher, we don’t know who, but we sure didn’t do it.” Surprised by their lack of Bible knowledge, he turned to the teacher and asked, “What do you think of that answer?” The teacher replied, “Well, I’ve known them since they were little, and they’ve always been honest. If they said they didn’t do it, I believe them.” (Sermon Central)
