Sermon on the What!!

Then Jesus took his disciples up the mountain and gathering them around Him, he taught them saying:

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven  

Blessed are the meek

Blessed are they that mourn

Blessed are the merciful

Blessed are they that thirst for justice

Blessed are you when persecuted

Blessed are you when you suffer Be glad and rejoice for your reward is great in heaven."

Then Simon Peter said, "Are we supposed to know this?"


And Andrew said, "Do we have to write this down?" 


And James said, "Will we have a test on this?" 


And Bartholomew said, "Do we have to turn this in?" 


And John said, "The other disciples didn't have to learn this." 


And Matthew said, "May I go to the toilet?" 


And Mark said, "Which National Curriculum level is this?" 


Then one of the pharisees who was present asked to see Jesus' lesson plan and inquired of Jesus, 


"Where are your lesson plans and what are your objectives in the cognitive domain?" 


And Jesus wept.
