On Christ not being on a bike

"Christ on a bus!" the man said.

"Don't you mean Christ on a bike?" I say, hoping to correct this obvious blasphemic error.

"No", he replied, "Christ on a bus! Just like when Christ arrived in Jerusalem on a bus all those years ago."

Another basic error.

Our Lord did not arrive in Jerusalem on a bus. Not did he arrive - as the scriptures worngly assert - on the back of a donkey.

As any fool know, Jesus had impeccable green credentials, and arrived in the Holy City in his 14-seater minibus, which was ideal for himself, his twelve disciples, and, of course, Mary Magdalene for those 'special' duties. Such as cooking, and changing tyres.

Touring the Holy Land, solving mysteries and unmasking evil caretakers who were scaring all the locals away so that they could have the only book shop in Nazareth, He called his bus the In Mysterious Ways Machine.

And He would have got away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling Romans.
