Jesus and the Pharisees

It came to pass that Jesus entered a village.

And in the village Jesus made an instant impression by preaching the Kingdom, discussing the Law of Moses and playing Pig Yahtzee (a pastime involving rolling pigs as if they were dice and shouting a neologism when they landed in a certain position).

And the Pharisees, jealously, scoffed and said to him, ‘all you do is talk words. Show us a sign that you are the Messiah.’

In response Jesus said, ‘watch and observe the glory of thy father’s kingdom.’

And lo, he began to do star jumps.

And the Pharisees were speechless at such a thing and they went away immediately.

But Jesus continued to do star jumps for approximately four hours before a boy threw a brick at his head and rendered him insensible.
