A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Tomb

Using stand-up poetry, Glen Scrivener investigates the humour and irony surrounding Jesus' resurrection.

Follow the women on the way to the tomb that Sunday morning, preparing to perfume a corpse but instead encountering the risen Jesus.

It's the ultimate happy ending, the comedy plot twist — death has been killed by dying. Easter laughter ensues because Jesus pioneers the ultimate "happily ever after."

Possible Discussion Questions

  • How did Jesus's friends react to his death? Why is this strange/understandable?
  • How do you feel about Jesus's destruction of death?
