JESUS: THE REBEL (Part One)
I hate goats. Even though I’m a 12 year old, I don’t see the appeal of tending to a flock. You wouldn’t believe how much I hate goats. Like, I get it, they give you milk, and I gotta admit, I’m a sucker for some lamb chops, but Me oh my, do they have to eat everything their mouth comes in contact with?? Take this morning right? I wake up, and mom tells me to go tend to the goats, pretty normal morning right? I go out there, when I see one of them chewing on my NEW TUNIC. My mom just made me the new threads a few days ago, now it has a big hole in the rib. I’m gonna look like a literal poor boy now, stupid thing! I can’t wait for Passover so we can sacrifice the goat. I think we named him Isaac or something I can’t remember. I know it’s like every boy’s dream to be a sheepherder, but I don’t know, I’m thinking something where I use my hands more. Yeah, like a fisherman or something…
This is great. I like the twist of religion and thoughts of a "modern" boy. Its a new perspective on faith and growing into identity, unlike what we usually read of perspectives in the bible.ReplyDelete
I’ve been reading your blog for about a year now and I normally enjoy your content. It’s insightful, creative, and helps me enjoy my breaks at work. That being said I find this pretty offensive. Jesus Christ was more than just a boy as you make him out to be here. He was DIVINE and you writing of him like any other human is disrespectful to my religion. I know you put a disclaimer, but really the post should just be taken down!ReplyDelete
I don't think he was being offensive the guy literally put a disclaimer at the beginning?Delete
