Friday night 27 AD

Did Jesus tell jokes?
Holy smokes!
Maybe a five line limerick
from way up north.
There once was a Scribe
from Jerusalem...
There is a creator
in Heaven...

When he and the Disciples
sat in the Upper Room
maybe on a Friday
and Andrew would sing,
such a sweet tenor,
they all knew the chorus.

Then maybe Bartholomew
would get up and tell
a fable from childhood
that everyone loved and
Peter would slap the table.

And Jesus sat smiling,
his laugh sometimes showing
his humanity, seen by all
the rest felt he was one
of them, not just their teacher
with the wry jokes that perplex.

It would be nice to think that he had a human side, that he may have been as imperfect as the rest of us. An interesting thought, a subject not often broached .....Thankyou.......Andrew.

Hi, agoodguy2have,
By recorded accounts of his life, Jesus, being quite a rebel for his time, exhibited the best parts of humanity. To think that humanity is capable of such goodness is a hopeful thing. Thank you for sharing.

They say Jesus told a few jokes in his day .. I reckon he had to have a sense of humour...handshake
