Remez, a Hebrew word meaning “hint” or “clue,” is a teaching and communication technique used by Jewish rabbis and teachers for at least the last 2,000 years. It is used in at least three forms—spoken, written and action or acted-out. This technique is used hundreds of times in the Gospels by all four Gospel writers, John the Baptizer, Jesus Christ and God the Father. When we grasp the concept and how it was used, it explains a number of puzzling passages in the Gospels and gives us deeper understanding of the messages recorded there for us.
