Shortest Verse . . .  Deepest Meaning!

As I’ve trained student athletes over the years, I have enjoyed asking them for their favorite memory verse. Invariably, the majority of them would be quick to recite from memory the shortest verse in all of sacred Scripture, John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” I find it quite remarkable that our Lord Jesus Christ wept.
