    Took me a few, but can’t expect more from a “holy” scripture.

    Actually Jesus had a great sense of humor and wasn’t above a pun! In Hebrew the words gimel and gimle mean camel and flea, respectively In Matthew 23:24 Jesus says “why strain out a flea and then swallow a camel”

    This joke by Jesus was in reply to Nathaniel’s joke about Jesus being “an HONEST Jew”.

    761st: Eight centuries earlier, Amos had a whole bunch of puns. Real groaners are easy to remember, and so might be the point they were making.

    The late Krister Stehndahl of the Harvard School of Theology once gave a guest lecture on Jesus as “a typical rabbi who answered questions with funny stories”, with the Parable of the Sower as the most memorable example – any farmer would know that’s a silly way to plant crops.

    The best jokes in the Bible are all in the Old Testament. There are a number of passages in the prophets where God gets really sarcastic. There’s also a passage near the end of Job, and some other places.

    The only trouble is, some of these passages can also be a bit racy for polite company. In particular, idolatry, being basically religious infidelity, has a tendency to be represented in metaphor by another well-known form of infidelity, and the imagery can be rather explicit at times.

    Luke 12:19, where in some versions Jesus has the certain rich man saying, "I will say to myself, ‘Self,…’ "

    And Paul said, “I wish you were just like me — except for these chains.”
