In 2018, Easter fell on the same day as April Fools Day, and Glen Scrivener explored how the Easter story is actually comedic...

Firstly, Easter reveals a God who has a death wish. But although the crucifixion looked like an assassination, it was also a coronation. Jesus' death wish is how he proved his deity.

Then there's his mode of transport: a king riding in on a donkey - what a joke, surely? Where's the stallion, the army of troops? But this king rides on to victory on a donkey.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • How could Jesus' death be seen as a coronation rather than an assassination?
  • How does Easter prove that Jesus is Lord?
