Sermon Illustrations

I was watching a recent program on TV about trying to reconstruct the chariot’s of the Assyrian army. One of the many problems they discovered was getting the yoke for the horses just right. The yoke they built would hurt the horses and cause them to flinch and run into each other. The reconstructionalist could not duplicate the fearsome charge of the Assyrian Chariots depicted in many of the ancient drawings. I guess making a wooden yoke is not an easy task, but it takes a skilled carpenter to get it right.
