I haven’t read this one yet but certainly recommend Ehrman who is both entertaining and accessible to the reader.

Is Jesus Interrupted like coitus interruptus? I say no. Por que? Some things ARE harmful if swallowed.

Jesus Interrupted?

When you see (on TV) the Rev. Joel Osteen preaching to 10,000 people in his megachurch (a former sports arena), you’d think at least one person in that multitude would stand up and interrupt him once in a while. (Like, even President Bush had a shoe thrown at him).  “Wait!  Wait!  Hang on there just a dang minute Joel!  Do you mean to stand up there and tell us that everyone can be rich like you?”  But it never happens.  I suppose they’d just edit it out of the telecast if it DID happen.

Does anyone ever interrupt the Pope?  I guess his motorcade has a bullet-proof shield.  If anyone threw a shoe at him I guess he’d be quickly pummeled to death by the faithful.

Was Jesus ever interrupted?  “Hold it Rabbi!  I represent the Sea of Galilee Winery Association . . .”  See what I mean?  He must have threatened the livlihood of a lot of people and stepped on a lot of toes.  Undertakers must have started to get worried.  And hog farmers!  Two-thousand hogs drowned in that one episode, and no mention of anyone paying for the damages.

I can’t wait to get ahold of the newest writings of iconoclasm entitled-

‘Jesus Unsmoked’  wink

That is of course not to be confused with Eric Clapton unplugged.
