Solving Sickness 2000 Years Ago
Funny home moment, hopefully you didn’t ‘have to be there’ to like it.
So my kids don’t go to church so they only have a high level understanding of Christian myths. They saw Ben Hur for the first time this weekend. They enjoyed the movie but had questions at the end. They really didn’t know the details about how Jesus died. So at the end of the movie they were asking about the cross, why he was nailed to it, etc.
(Do I need to give a spoiler alert on Ben Hur? Hopefully not, classic movie.)
Anyway, at the end Jesus dies and Ben Hur’s mom and sister are magically cured of leprosy at the time of his death and my kids are having a WTF moment.
Son: Wait, how were they cured?
Me: I guess Jesus cured them at his death.
Son (Mocking): Why don’t people just keep killing Jesus every time he comes back and use that to heal the sick?
I just lost it. Sorry if the moment is lost over the Internet…
