God has asked many people questions throughout the Bible in the old and new testaments. This is an interesting event because God already knows everything, why then does He ask for an answer from people as if He needed information. The answer is simple; He asks us questions not to inform Himself but for our own sake. He asks us something so that we may recognize the truth and come to terms with it openly. This is like a school teacher that knows the answer to the questions posed to their students but they ask the questions in order to challenge the students. A teacher asks the questions in order to draw out what is inside of them for the students own sake whether it be correct or not.
Here is a list of famous questions asked in the Bible:
“Where are you?” – to Adam, Genesis 3:9
“Who told you you were naked” – to Adam Genesis 3:11
“Have you eaten the fruit I commanded you not to eat?” – to Adam Genesis 3:11
“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much.” – to Job, Job 38:4
“Who touched me” – to the crowd, Mark 5:21-34
“Who do men say that I am” – to Disciples, Mark 8:27
Why do you think God asks questions, and what are some questions God asks or has asked you?
