A Boy, His Teacher and Identity – Ted Dekker

Ted Dekker shares that he has spent his life on a journey to understand his own identity and that of his father. He tells the story of a boy and his teacher walking in the Savana. Happening upon a lion and a hyena, the teacher expounds upon the infinitude of God and the smallness of evil. The boy, understanding, finally, God’s greatness, questions his own value, and the teacher tells of the first and second Adams, judgment introduced into and dispelled from the world, and the boy’s ultimate identity in the image of God.
