Have a Snickers, Jesus

Jesus Have a Snickers

When I shared David Hayward’s depiction of the temple incident, suggesting that it happened because Jesus hadn’t had his morning coffee, Brian Le Port pointed out that it reminded him of one of those Snickers commercials.

It seemed worth actually making it, and so I did. In case it needs to be said, I don’t think that the above depicts what actually happened. But I trust it can still be funny, despite or perhaps even because of that. Indeed, perhaps my attempt at humor can even be useful for getting at the tendency to flatten Jesus (and indeed other characters in the Gospels) into pure gentleness and kindness, or an angry table-flipper, with no room for a complex character who might fit both at times.
