The Jesus Miracle Show that Went Bust

image from

"So he questioned him at some length, but he made no answer." - Luke 23:9 (ESV)

Religious entertainment was cancelled for the day.

Herod finally got a chance to meet Jesus, hoping for a miracle show.

He had been wanted to see him "perform," but Jesus would not dance for him. So, Herod and his crew made their own show of mocking Jesus and Herod and Pilate bonded over their "inside joke."

Spoiled brats, that we are, we want to be entertained by God and, when religion loses its entertainment titillation, we move on to the crueler comedy of ridicule.

We have not changed all that much as a collective humanity.
