Squeezing A Camel Through A Needle or Was Jesus A Funny Guy?



Some people query, who knows why,
If Jesus was a funny guy.
He was one of us human folk
So possibly He told a joke.
At some Semitic feast or fest
Perhaps He spun a tale in jest.
He may have had a great punchline
When He changed water into wine.
And did He not use repartee
Against the Scribe or Pharisee?

The four Evangelists do not
Recount His lighter side a lot.
Sifting the Gospels for the risible
Might just convince you it's invisible.
But ancient Palestine and Sumer
Didn't share our sense of humor.
