  A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination,
looking at the old pages as he turned them. Then something fell out 
of the Bible and he picked it up and looked at it closely. It was an 
old leaf from a tree that has been pressed in between the pages. 
  "Momma, look what I found," the boy called out. 
  "What have you got there, dear?" his mother asked. 
  With astonishment in the young boy's voice he answered, 
"It's Adam's suit!!"

  A little boy comes in and says to his mother, "Is it true that 
we come from dust and return to dust?"
  "That's what the Bible says," she answered.
  "Well, somebody is either coming or going under my bed," he said.

  They recently discovered a smaller scroll hidden in the cylinder

  Ole and Sven had been running a dray service for three decades 
when their dray beast died and they had to bury him.  They 
decided to bury him on the riverbank where they'd always stopped 
to eat their lunch.  The Main Avenue bridge passed almost overhead.
  While they were digging the grave, they remembered the good old 
days, and funny incidents about the beast.
  "Best donkey we ever had," mused Ole.
  "Yeah, sure, you betcha," said Sven, "but he was a burro."
  The argument heated up, and they came to blows, beating one 
another with harness, tack, and shovels.  Their pastor happened 
across the bridge.
  "Here now, then, what's the problem, boys?"
  "Ole says old Jack, here, was a donkey," said Sven. "I say he 
was a burro.  Who's right?"
  "Well," mused pastor Oleson, "the Bible always refers to that 
beast as an 'ass'."
  "Oh, yah," said Ole.
  "Oh, yah," said Sven.
  They returned to their digging.  A bit later, Lars happened 
across the bridge.
  "Say, what you boys digging," he asked, "a foxhole?"
  Ole looked up at him.  "Not according to the Scriptures, it's not."

  The little girl was sitting with her grandmother, who had 
presented her with her first little children's Bible, in an 
easy-to-read translation, when she was very young.
  Now, a decade or so later, the old lady was ready to spend
a few sweet moments handing down the big old Family Bible, in 
the time-honored King James Version, to her only grandchild.
  Understandably excited, the youngster was asking a number 
of questions, both about the family members whose births and 
deaths were recorded therein, and about various aspects of 
the Scriptures themselves.
  Her grandmother was endeavoring to answer all the child's 
questions in terms she could understand; but the one that 
stopped her cold was this sincere inquiry:
  "Which Virgin was the mother of Jesus?  Was it the Virgin 
Mary, or the King James Virgin?"

  There's a fair bit about constipation in the Bible, as the 
following ancient church summer camp ditty demonstrates:
There were five, five constipated men in the Bible, in the Bible.
Now the first, first, constipated man was Cain, who was not Abel.
Now the second, second, constipated man was Moses, who took two tablets.
Now the third, third, constipated man was Balaam, who had a stubborn ass.
Now the fourth, fourth, constipated man was Samson, who brought the 
house down.
Now the fifth, fifth, constipated man was David, who sat for forty years.

  A father was approached by his small son, who told him proudly,
"I know what the word Bible means!"
  His father smiled and replied, "What do you mean, you know what 
the word Bible means?"
  The son replied, "I do know!"
  "Okay," said his father.  "So, Son, what does it mean?"
  "That's easy, Daddy.  It stands for Basic Information Before 
Leaving Earth."

  A father was reading Bible stories to his young son. He read, 
"The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of 
the city, but his wife looked back and was turned to salt."
  His son asked, "What happened to the flea?"

  A Sunday School teacher read a passage from the Old Testament Book 
of Jonah to her class:
  And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah; and Jonah 
was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.  Then Jonah 
prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish, saying,
'I called to the Lord out of my distress and He answered me. And the 
Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.
  When she had finished reading, the teacher said, Now, children, 
you have heard the Bible story of Jonah and the whale. What does this 
story teach us Mark, a ten-year-old, shouted out, You can't keep a 
good man down!

  There was a religious lady that had to do a lot of traveling for 
her business, so naturally she did a lot of flying. Flying made her
extremely nervous, so she always took her Bible along with her to 
read since it helped relax her on the long flights.
  One time, she was sitting next to a man. When he saw her pull out 
her Bible, he gave a little chuckle, smirked and went back to what 
he was doing.
  After a while, he turned to her and asked, "You don't really
believe all that stuff in there do you?"
 The lady replied, "Of course I do. It is the Bible."
 He said, "Well, what about the guy that was swallowed by the whale?"
 She replied, "Oh, Jonah. Yes, I believe that, it is in the Bible."
 He asked,  "Well, how do you suppose he survived all that time inside
the whale?"
  The lady said, "Well, I don't really know. I guess when I get to
heaven, I will ask him."
  "What if he isn't in heaven?" the man asked sarcastically.
  "Then I guess, you can ask him," replied the lady.

  A lady surprised a burglar in her kitchen.  He was all loaded down
with the things he was going to steal.  She had	no weapon and was all
alone.  The only thing that she could think to do was quote scripture.
So, she held up a hand and yelled out, "ACTS 2:38 !!!"
  The burglar suddenly quaked in fear and then froze with his hands in
the air.  The woman quickly called 911 for the police.  When the cops 
arrived, the burglar was still frozen in place.  The police were very 
much surprised that a woman alone with no weapon could so terrorize a 
clearly hardened criminal.
  One of them asked the lady, "How did you do that?"
  The woman replied, "I quoted scripture."
  Bewildered, the cop turned to the burglar.  "What was it about the 
scripture that had such an effect on you?"
  The burglar replied, "Scripture!  What scripture?  I thought she 
said she had an axe and two .38's!"

  One of the mysteries of the Bible is God's testing of Job.
He took everything away from the poor guy but his wife.  For
years, scholars have debated why.
  Seems to me it's rather simple actually.  After God finished
the testing of Job, He returned twice what He had taken away.
If He had taken Job's wife, that means God would've had to give
him back two wives.  Not even God would have inflicted such a
severe penalty on Job after all he'd been through.

  A pastor went out one Saturday to visit his church members. At one
house it was obvious that someone was home, but nobody came to the
door even though the pastor had knocked several times.  Finally, the
pastor took out his card and wrote "Revelations 3:20" on the back of
it, and stuck it in the door.

[Revelations 3:20: Behold, I stand at he door and knock. If anyone
hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine
with him and him with me.]

  The next day, the card turned up in the collection plate.  
Below the pastor's message was the notation "Genesis 3:10".

[Genesis 3:10: I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid,
because I was naked; and I hid myself.]

  At the church Sunday School Ms. Johnson, the new teacher, had just
finished the day's lesson. It was now time for the usual question 
  "Ms. Johnson," announced little Joey, "there's somethin' I can't 
figure out."
  "What's that Joey?" asked the teacher.
  "Well accordin' to the Bible, the Children of Israel crossed the
Red Sea, right?"
  "An' the Children of Israel beat up the Philistines, right?"
  "An' the Children of Israel built the Temple, right?"
  "Again you're right."
  "An' the Children of Israel fought the 'gyptians, an' the Children
of Israel fought the Romans, an' the Children of Israel wuz always 
doin' somethin' important, right?"
  "All that is right, too," agreed Goldblatt. "So what's your question?"
  "What I wanna know is this," demanded Joey. "What wuz all the grown-ups
doin' all that time?"


  A man has been in business for many, many years and the business 
is going down the drain. He is seriously contemplating suicide and 
he doesn't know what to do.  He goes to the Priest to seek his advice.
He tells the Priest about all of his problems in the business and asks
the Priest what he should do. 
  The Priest says, "Take a beach chair and a bible and put them in 
your car and drive down to the edge of the ocean. Go to the water's 
edge. Take the beach chair out of the car, sit on it and take the 
Bible out and open it up. The wind will rifle the pages for a while 
and eventually the Bible will stay open at a particular page. Read 
the Bible and it will tell you what to do."
  The man does as he is told. He places a beach chair and a Bible 
in his car and drives down to the beach. He sits on the chair at the 
water's edge and opens the Bible. The wind rifles the pages of the 
Bible and then stops at a particular page. He looks down at the Bible
and sees what he has to do.
  Three months later the man and his family come back to see the Priest.
The man is wearing a $1,000 Italian suit, The wife is all decked out 
with a full-length mink coat and the child is dressed in beautiful silk.
The man hands the Priest a thick envelope full of money and tells him 
that he wants to donate this money to the church in order to thank the
Priest for his wonderful advice.
  The Priest is delighted. He recognizes the man and asks him what 
advice in the bible brought this good fortune to him. 
  The man replies, "Chapter 11." 

  A lawyer was on his death-bed in the hospital.  When a friend came
to visit, he found the lawyer frantically leafing through the Bible.
  "What are you doing?" the visitor asked.
  The sick lawyer replied, "Looking for loopholes."


  The Lord and I are in a shepherd/sheep situation.  I am in a position 
of negative need.
  He prostrates me in a green belt grazing area; he conducts me 
directionally parallel to a torrential aqueous liquid.
  He returns to original satisfaction levels my psychological make-up; 
he switches me on to a positive behavioral format for maximum prestige
of his identity.
  It should be said that notwithstanding the fact that I make ambulatory
progress through the umbrageous interhill mortality slot, terror 
sensations will not be instantiated in me due to para ethical phenomena.
  You pastoral walking aid and quadruped pick up unit introduce me to
pleasurific mood state.
  You design and produce a nutrient bearing furniture type structure in 
the context of non co-operative elements; you act out a head related 
folk ritual employing vegetable extract by beverage utensil experiences
in a volume crisis.
  It is an ongoing deducible fact that your interrelation emphatic and 
non vengeance capabilities will retain me as their target focus for 
the duration of my non-death period.  I will possess tenant rights in 
the house of the Lord on a permanently open ended time basis.

  A preacher was telling his congregation that anything they could 
think of, old or new, was discussed somewhere in the Bible and that
the entirety of the human experience could be found there.
  After the service, he was approached by a woman who said "Preacher,
I don't believe the Bible mentions PMS."
  The preacher replied that he was sure it must be there somewhere 
and that he would look for it.
  The following week after the service, the preacher called the woman
aside and showed her a passage which read, "And Mary rode Joseph's ass
all the way to Bethlehem."


Samson! Get your hand out of that lion. You don't know where 
it's been! (Judges 14:5-8)

David! I told you not to play in the house with that sling!  
Go practice your harp. We pay good money for those lessons!

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego! Leave those clothes outside, you smell
like a dirty ol' furnace!

Cain! Get off your brother! You're going to kill him some day!

more strays!

Gideon! Have you been hiding in that wine press again? Look at 
your clothes!   (Judges 6:11)

James and John! No more burping contests at the dinner table, please.
People are going to call you the sons of thunder! (Mark3:17)

Judas! Have you been in my purse again?!

Jesus, close the door! What do you think, you were born in a barn?

  The Sunday school teacher was carefully explaining the story of
Elijah the Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained 
how Elijah built the altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in 
pieces and laid it upon the altar.
  "Then Elijah commanded the people of God to fill four barrels 
of water and pour it over the altar."
  "He had them do this four times."
  "Now," said the teacher, "can anyone in the class tell me why 
the Lord would have Elijah pour water over the steer on the altar?"
  A little girl raised her hand with great enthusiasm and said,
"To make the gravy."

Christians believe the Bible is a resource for all ages. However a 
few Churches in Columbia, Maryland, have updated "The Beatitudes" 
originally presented at the "Sermon on the Mount" (Matthew 5: 1-11) 

Blessed are the poor in spirit, they are rife consumers for all 
manner of inspirational products and fair game for the 

Blessed are those who mourn, for they too shall spend great sums with
regard to various memorials, remembrances and all manner of laminated
items. Forget them not on the anniversary of their sorrow; for what
profit it a man not to follow-up initial sales and thus forego many
years of future purchases 

Blessed are the meek, they complain not concerning low wages or poor
working conditions; neither shall they raise their voices in protest
over shoddy workmanship or substandard products 

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst, for they are following their
"low fat" diets in strict accordance with their physician's wishes 

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall forgive your sexual
harassment and file not a discrimination suit; neither shall they
contact the EEO or ACLU, nor congregate in demonstrations and protests 

Blessed are the pure in heart, for surely, their cholesterol shall be
the lowest in the land; neither shall their arteries clog. Strike fear
into their minds, then they will purchase all manner of drugs, herbs and
potions so they may maintain their purity 

Blessed are the peacemakers, for the profits from "peace-keeping"
armaments shall be ten-fold that of those gun merchants who would wage

Blessed are those who are persecuted, their names shall be entered in
nomination for political office and even the least among them shall be
appointed to positions of authority 

Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you, for you shall
be known as President of the United States, or some governor thereof,
whereas citizens of other lands shall be known as despots 

Rejoice and be glad, for verily I say unto you -- the Consumer
Confidence Index is at an all time high; tax surpluses are everywhere,
as far as the eye can see; unemployment is at an all time low and the
stock markets are as high as the interest rates are low; again, I say

Your reward is great in Heaven ... be ever mindful of the fact that
the keepers of the records are compounding daily the interest on the
treasures you have stored there 

It is no longer good for anything to be thrown out, be joyful
concerning the money-making opportunities in the recycling fervor
sweeping all mankind 

Let your light so shine before men, this I say unto you, even if you
should fail to become a leading merchant among men with profit-margins
unforeseen, there is untold wealth and fame for a great multitude of
financial advisors, consultants and tax experts.

Some verses I found in the Bible relating to computer science:

fools poureth out foolishness. (Proverbs 15:2) 

I speak with tongues more than ye all. (1 Corinthians 14:18)

The following is said to be written by actual students and are 
"genuine, authentic, and unretouched." 

  In the first book of the Bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating 
the world, so He took the Sabbath off.  Adam and Eve were created from 
an apple tree.  Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark.  Noah built an ark,
which the animals came on to in pears.  Lot's wife was a pillar of salt
by day, but a ball of fire by night.

  The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had 
trouble with the unsympathetic Genitals.  Samson was a strongman who
let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah.  Samson slayed 
the Philistines with the axe of the apostles.

  Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened 
bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. The Egyptians were
all drowned in the dessert.  Afterwards, Moses went up on Mount Cyanide
to get the Ten Amendments. The First Commandment was when Eve told Adam
to eat the apple.  The Fifth Commandment is to humor thy father and 
mother. The seventh Commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery.

  Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then Joshua led the Hebrews
in the battle of Geritol.  The greatest miracle in the Bible is when 
Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him.

  David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought with 
the Finklesteins, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon,
one of David's sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.

  Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do one to others 
before they do one to you.  He also explained, "Man doth not live by 
sweat alone."

  The people who followed the Lord were called the 12 decibels. The 
epistles were the wives of the apostles.  One of the opossums was 
St. Matthew who was, by profession, a taximan.

  St. Paul cavorted to Christianity.  He preached holy acrimony, which 
is another name for marriage.  A Christian should have only one wife.  
This is called monotony.

  When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she sang the
  When the three wise guys from the east side arrived, they found 
Jesus in the manager.
Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.
St.John, the Blacksmith, dumped water on his head."

  Rev. W.O. Taylor, 91, was the oldest man attending the Southern 
Baptist Convention a few years ago.  At the annual free breakfast
for retirees, Brother Taylor rose and recited his own version of 
the parable of the prodigal son, which he entitled "The Final 
Fixing of the Foolish Fugitive:"
  "Feeling footloose, fancy-free and frisky, this feather-brained 
fellow finagled his fond father into forking over his fortune.  
Forthwith, he fled for foreign fields and frittered his farthings
feasting fabulously with fair-weather friends.  Finally, facing 
famine, and fleeced by his fellows in folly, he found himself a 
feed flinger in a filthy farmlot. He fain would have filled his 
frame with foraged food from the fodder fragments.
  "'Fooey!  My father's flunkies fare far fancier,"  the frazzled 
fugitive fumed feverishly, frankly facing fact.
  "Frustrated from failure and filled with forebodings, he fled 
for his family.
  "Falling at his father's feet, he floundered forlornly. 'Father, 
I have flunked and fruitlessly forfeited further family favors...'
  "But the faithful father, forestalling further flinching,
frantically flagged his flunkies to fetch forth the finest fatling
and fix a feast.
  "But the fugitive's fault-finding frater, faithfully farming his 
father's fields for free, frowned at this fickle forgiveness of 
former falderal.  His fury flashed, but fussing was futile.
  "His foresighted father figured, 'Such filial fidelity is fine, 
but what forbids fervent festivities?  The fugitive is found!  
Unfurl the flags! With fanfare flaring, let fun, frolic and 
frivolity flow freely, former failures forgotten and folly forsaken. 
Forgiveness forms a firm foundation for future fortitude.'"

   This door-to-door entrepreneur became rather bored with his job of
selling Bibles, so he decided to become a boss, hiring three people 
to sell Bibles for him.  He interviewed three people.
  The first came in and said, "I want to sell Bibles for you."
  "OK, you're hired.  Here's your kit; go sell!"
  The second came in and said, "I want to sell Bibles for you."
  "OK, you're hired!  Here's your kit; go sell!"

  The applicant replied, "B-b-b-b-but I r-r-r-eall, but I really,

  I'll betcha didn't know that the car was first mentioned in the bible.
In Genesis to be exact.
  I quoteth, "And God in HIS FURY, drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden
of Eden"
  I know somewhere else in the New Testament it says something about the
disciples leaving in their own ACCORD, but I'm not sure where.

Where is the first baseball game in the Bible?
In the big inning, Eve stole first, Adam stole second, Cain struck 
out Abel and the prodigal son came in last.

  In a recent major discovery, several sections of a previously 
unknown book of the Bible were discovered and translated. Here, in 
part, is the translation of the only known copy of the Book of 
  "And it came to pass that the goat shepherd Gaseous had a vision. 
Whilst tending his flock, a thunderous roar filled the air, and dark 
clouds rolled in from the west. Gaseous fell to his knees and began 
to pray. The Lord's voice came from the clouds.
  'Gaseous, you are to be a messenger of the Lord. Within all of my
creatures lies fertile ground for evil spirits to develop. These evils
must be expelled with great force, lest they manifest themselves into
greater evil. Take it upon thee to spread the news across the land.'
  'Yes, O Lord. Yet I do not understand the way in which we shall rid
ourselves of the spirits. I pray thee, show me the way O Lord, that I
may sing thy Word to all people.'
  A large bush suddenly sprang from the ground before Gaseous. On the 
bush hung large ripe beans.
  'Partake of  these beans. Return here tomorrow and I shall show thee 
the way.'
  Upon this Word, Gaseous ate the beans. That night a vision came to
gaseous in his dream. A great wind erupted, and evil spirits were 
swept from the land. Angels appeared and sang a hymn:
	'Behold thine Lords Magical Fruit
	The more thine eats
	The more thine toots'
  Upon waking, Gaseous returned to the Bean Bush. The Lord appeared 
before him.
  'Take these Magical Beans and plant them across the land. All who 
eat of these shall be expelled of evil spirits. Read to them these
  A large tablet appeared, and the Lord vanished. Gaseous trembled in
fear. Suddenly he passed an evil wind and his fear was gone. 
'I smell the foul stench of Lucifer. I must spread this throughout the
  He gathered up the beans, and set out to spread the word of the Lord
"Gaseous arrived in the town of Effluvium and stood amongst its people. 
He placed a bean in the ground and from it sprung a large bush.
  'The Lord hath spoken unto me and I am to spread his word'
He told of his visions, and all who heard ate of the beans. He raised
the tablet over his head and proclaimed.
  "Blessed is thee, O Lord, for this is your word.
  Upon the expelling of evil spirits, thou shalt warn others of the
presence of evil, that they may escape the spirits wrath.
  Thou shalt not expel evil spirits near fire, for the spirits may 
raise up and attack at thee.
  Thou shalt not withhold from expelling evil spirits for this allows 
them to grow stronger and thus become harder to pass.
  Thine animals may also have evil spirits, and thus shall not be
mistreated for ridding of them.
  Thou shalt know the difference between riding of evil spirits and
relieving thee, or face embarrassing  punishments.
  Thou shalt not pass gas indoors, for this allows the evil to linger 
and grab hold of others.
  Should thee need to rid of spirits indoors, thou shalt blame thyself 
and not the animals.
  Thou shalt know that evil spirits can remain in thy clothes, so 
cleans frequently.
  There are many spirits in many forms. Fear not of ridding that which 
is good.
  Forgive those who rid of evil in your presence, for they must relieve
themselves of the foul winds.
  This is the word of the Lord"
  A great wind arose from within Gaseous, and all the town could smell 
the Evil. They prayed for forgiveness and soon were relieved of their

Dear Sirs,

  It is Mr. Christ's understanding that you are planning to write and
publish a biography of him in the near future. Such a  biography would,
he is sure you would realize, be entirely unauthorized and if it were
published in the form you suggest he would be forced to take the matter
up with the highest authority.
  However he can fully understand your wish to write about his life
and will sanction such a project a number of conditions:

 1. That the title of the book be 'The Holy Bible' and not as you
propose, 'Hot and Salty - Our Sexy Savior's Saucy Story'.

 2. That you do not mention the name of his natural Father (Elvin
Roxenby-Toke) who, for legal reasons, contests paternity. He suggest 
you utilize the 'virgin birth' scenario.  Mr. Christ realizes that 
this is entirely ludicrous but suggests that no-one ever went bust
underestimating the credibility of the average religious zealot.

 3. That all references to the incident involving the members of
members of the Bethlehem Boys Club, olive oil and a wooden spoon 
to be excised forthwith.

 4. That the death scene to be 'pepped up' as it were. The actual
circumstances that you mention are simply not dramatic enough.  
An accident with a wine jar and a stray fish just does not have the
theatrical impact of say, a crucifixion with the full atmospheric
effects of a large cast.

 5. That the book not to be dedicated, as it is at the moment, to
'My dearest Wooly-Boo with all my love squiggles.'

 6. That a fictional  character, possibly a twelfth disciple, be
introduced to give him away to the authorities. The reality of 
the case, that he was shopped by his Mother and done for indecent 
exposure, should on no account be discussed.

 7. And the so called 'Parable of the Leather Undergarment' be
removed or at least modified.

  As long as these guidelines are followed he can see no reason why
you should not write and publish your proposed biography although he
doesn't see it as a success himself. He informs me that he enjoyed your
previous books, especially 'Murderburger Hell-High' and 'Slutslaughter -
Slashin' the Winded'. Your suggested biography of him appears to be in
the same vein and it is for this reason that he must reject your offer
of a profit sharing scheme in return for his appearing to promote the
  In any case Mr. Christ is at the moment fully occupied with his
promotion for 'Shake 'n' Vac'.

  Yours sincerely.

  Adam G Smith.
