10/29/17 – The Rest of the Story
Growing up, I immensely enjoyed listening to Paul Harvey’s radio show THE REST OF THE STORY. It consisted of stories presented as little-known or forgotten facts on a variety of subjects with some key element of the story (usually the name of some well-known person) held back until the end. The broadcasts always concluded with a variation of the tag line “And now you know (PAUSE) the rest of the story.
I remember the rest of the story of the corner druggist Dr John Pemberton who invented something most of you have in your home. And then there was William Claude Dukenfield who became one of the most successful comedians of his day. Can you figure out Dukenfield’s stage name? if so you will know the rest of the story.
And that brings us to our subject matter for this Lord’s Day. I compared JONAH to an episodic TV show. But if it was, you would have like the abrupt ending of Episode 4. Did they fire the writers? Run out of money? What happened to everyone?
But this Sunday I will give you the rest of the story. Now I cannot tell you where this is found. If I did then you would already know the rest of the story. But I can tell you it is in the Bible.
