I just have to tell you this quick story from my jail Bible study: Maybe you could use the grin. There were three Native American gals there. One has been coming since July. I knew her since she was a kid. She declared when she first started to come that she just came to get out of her cell and that she had never touched a Bible before. But now she’s hooked. She’s studying the Bible and is an eager participant in our studies. She gets out at the end of the month. She’s covered in tattoo’s and wants to get them head to toe like her boyfriend, but just has them on her arms at this point. The other two have some tattoos, but not like her.
The other two gals (sisters) just came in the previous Wednesday from a big drug bust at their house and they were telling about that. Somehow it fit into the study. Then they said that the night before, in their cell, they were all sitting around their cell talking about the book of Revelation. So I said something like “that’ll blow your mind” and they were like “yeah.”
My Bible study partner for the evening had them turn to Revelation 19:11 and said something about the gist of it being that Jesus wins in the end after a big battle. Then I read verses 12- 16 and verse 16 includes this about Jesus: “on His thigh He has a name written ‘King of Kings and Lord of Lords.’” The gal who has been there since July said, “so it’s safe to say He’s a tattooed man.” And one of the others sighed and said “I never could resist a tattooed man.” I said “this is one tattooed man you don’t want to resist.”
