The Young Preacher

Can you tell the entire Bible stories in five minutes?

Below is the story of a young preacher who can.

An older preacher told the story of a young minister interviewing for his first pastorate.

The young minister said, “Yes, pretty good.”

The chairman asked, “Which part do you know best?”

He responded saying, “I know the New Testament best.”

“Which part of the New Testament do you know best,” asked the chairman.

The young minister said, “Several parts.”

The chairman said, “Well, why don’t you tell us the story of the Prodigal Son.”

“There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, who went down to Jericho by night and he fell upon stony ground and the thorns choked him half to death.

“The next morning Solomon and his wife, Gomorrah, came by, and carried him down to the ark for Moses to take care of.

“The next day, the three wise men came and carried him down to the boat dock and he caught a ship to Nineveh.

“And, she burst asunder in their midst. And they picked up twelve baskets of the leftovers. And, in the resurrection whose wife shall she be?”

The Committee chairman suddenly interrupted the young minister and said to the remainder of the committee, “Fellows, I think we ought to ask the church to call him as our minister. He is awfully young, but he sure does know his Bible.”

The Perfect pastor

The nervous preacher.


  1. On one level, this is very funny and gave me a laugh! But as I thought about it I realized there are many Christians who really don’t know the Bible any more than this young man – just bits and pieces they heard in Sunday School. But thanks for the laugh!
