On The Way To Jerusalem

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.
