Description

A funny thing happened on the way to the execution

In this poem, Glen Scrivener unpacks the sad humour and irony in Jesus' execution:

  • The Judge is put in the dock 
  • The King is convicted of treason
  • The Truth is held in contempt of court
  • God is declared a heretic

How amazing that despite this, God doesn't respond with a thunderbolt, but with arms unfurled in forgiveness!

Possible Discussion Questions

  • What do you find funny or strange about Jesus' execution?
  • How does it make you feel, that despite how he was treated Jesus was offering forgiveness at the cross rather than retaliating?
