Someone told a master, "I memorize the Scriptures so that I will be able to
answer anyone who comes to me, with the very words of God."
The master said, "Let me tell you about that painting on the wall," and
described in perfect detail every hue, every brush stroke.
"Very well," the visitor said, "but what is the painting a picture of?"
"Very well," the master said, "but what is the Bible about?"
