Life of Brian Moments of Biblical Interpretation

In the Gospel According to Monty Python, the former leper is complaining to Brian that being cured makes his begging gig harder because no one wants to give money to a former leper. Brian mutters that there’s no pleasing some people. The leper responds “That’s what Jesus said, sir!”

I can well believe Jesus actually said this.

Paraphrasing the greatest hit of Lesley Gore, c. 1964: “You would sing too, if it happened to you!” :smiley:

Thanks! I had no idea of this.

“Harold be thy name”.

Au contraire, my friend: I should thank you, who prompted my Google search for a cite! Now, just don’t mindlessly take it for the truth for the next forty years! :slight_smile:

God owns a Plymouth, among other cars. He drove Adam and Eve out of the garden in his Fury.

He took Elijah away in a Tempest.

Not from the Bible, but we can’t forget, round John Virgin from Silent Night.

I live in the only state mentioned in the Bible.

Genesis 8:13: By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry.

Our congregation always sings that one right after “Bringing in the Sheeps”.
