Notes & Transcripts


An elderly lady was taking an airplane flight back to her home in Kansas City Mo, and She was sitting next to a young businessman.

After the in-flight meal was over, she took out her Bible and started having her devotions. 

The businessman glanced at her and said.   Do you really believe that stuff in the  Bible is true?

"Well, yes, as a matter of fact I do," said the old lady.

"Yeah, right..." the man scoffed, "like... what's that guy's name, the one who got  swallowed by a whale..."

"You mean Jonah?"

"Yeah, Jonah, I mean, how do you actually survive for 3 days in a fish's bowel?"

"I don't know," replied the old lady, "but I can ask him when I see him in heaven  someday."

Feeling smart, the young man said: "Ok, but what if he's not in heaven because he  went to hell?"


"Well then young man, 'you' can ask him" said the old lady calmly.
