One of the tips left by Jesus during His teaching days on earth was this one: Show your audience what you’re trying to tell them. Sounds weird, right? However, it worked.
Can’t you see Jesus speaking to the thousands assembled on the hillside? When He tells the people to first remove the speck in their own eye before they go hunting for beams in others’ eyes, can’t you see Him with a splinter in one hand and a 2 x 4 in the other? That would make the point, wouldn’t it? Who is to say Jesus didn’t do something like that?
