LULZ! Jesus Laughs

Jesus looks a little sketchy here...

G.K. Chesterton wrote:

"This tremendous figure which fills the Gospels towers in this respect, as in every other, above all the thinkers who ever thought themselves tall.

"His pathos was natural, almost casual. The Stoics, ancient and modern, were proud, proud of concealing their tears. He never concealed His tears; He showed them plainly on His open face at any daily sight, such as the far sight of His native city. Yet He concealed something . . 

"Solemn Supermen and Imperial Diplomatists are proud of restraining their anger. He never restrained His anger. He flung furniture down from the steps of the Temple and asked men how they expected to escape the damnation of Hell. Yet He restrained something . . .

"I say it with reverence — there was in that shattering personality a thread that must be called shyness.

"There was something that He hid from all men when He went up a mountain to pray.

"There was something that He covered constantly by abrupt silence or impetuous isolation.

"There was some one thing that was too great for God to show us when He walked upon our earth, and I have sometimes fancied that it was His mirth.”

Are you sure you're not committing some kind of sin by showcasing this awful stuff? :)

Well, it's better than Billy Ray Jesus below it in the left margin.

I remember this from the 70's. And actually, I don't think it's a bad thing to occasionally remind ourselves that Jesus is also the Lord of humor!
