JESUS CHRIST, THAT’S A GOOD TRICK.

11 May 2006

On Monday, I woke up and by early afternoon, I was on the 1 train, which I took to the last stop, 242nd Street, where I transferred to the Bronx 9 bus to 262nd Street. I then walked north into Yonkers in Westchester county for about half a mile. Then, I turned around and walked south on Broadway through the Bronx, into Manhattan, all the way to the southern tip, where I dangled my toe over the river, a journey of about 19 miles.

Along the way, I passed by David Blaine in his plastic bubble of water, and somebody handed me a hand-written flier:

On the front it says this:

Death Defying
feats of
David Blaine:
– Buried alive in a coffin
– Frozen in time in ice
– Drowned alive in a sphere
Everybody loves the challenge
of a Death Defying feat.
All of us wish we could defy death.
David Blaine may have done
all these things, and he
might even break the chains.
BUT DID HE REALLY DEFY DEATH?
On the back, it says this:
Death Defying
feats of
JESUS:
– Brought Jairus’ daughter to life.
– Raised Lazarus from the dead.
– Was resurrected Himself.
EVEN THE TOMB WAS EMPTY!!!
Jesus defied death not by
looking to escape it, but by
giving His life to conquer it
so that we might have life.
“I have come that they might
have life and have it to the full”
(John 10:10)
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS CONQUERED DEATH?
DO YOU WANT TO DEFY DEATH?
Call or write:
Sara Herr
Jews for Jesus

New York, NY 10016
(212)684-7077
“Whoever lives and believes will never die.
Do you believe this?” (John 11:26)
This really tickled me, because basically what Sara is saying is this:
As great and amazing as David Blaine is, Jesus is even better. As much as you worship David Blaine, you should worship Jesus at least that much. As amazing as the parlor tricks of David Blaine are, they are no better than the parlor tricks of Jesus.
