An excited new convert was reading his Bible with a liberal minister he knew. The boy was reading through Exodus when he got to the Red Sea crossing. Suddenly, he startled the minister with a loud exclamation of, “wow! Praise the Lord!”
The minister looked at him and asked him what the commotion was about.
The young man responded, “The Lord has just rescued the Israelites by parting the Red Sea for them!”
The minister frowned, “my historian friend says that, at that time of year, the Red Sea was nothing but a swamp filled with three inches of water.”
The young man deflated, “oh.” He turned back to his Bible and kept reading, not near as excited.
Within a few moments, the young man exclaimed, “wow! Praise the Lord!”
The minister replied with, “what is it this time?”
The young man looked at him, glowing. “God has even performed a greater miracle! He has just drowned the entire Egyptian army in three inches of water!”
