A Teaser Trailer

MRK 4:30 ESV

And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it?

There are few things in this world that are more annoying than a comedy whose teaser contains ALL the jokes. And there are few things in this world that are more confusing than a trailer that makes you say, “Huh? What’s the movie about??”

God is like the perfect teaser trailer. He’s been using teasers since the Garden. “You’ll bruise his heel but he’ll crush your head.” And then God makes the first pair of fur underwear.

Why is He all about “it’s going to be like/ it’s kinda like”? I think it’s because He wants to be pursued. He hides these wonderful revelations about Himself in confounding boxes of mystery. He creates mystery by showing you a small bit of a bit of Himself. Enough whimsy to see He’s irresistible and vague enough to stir your curiosity. Except His film is always a Box Office success.
