If Jesus Was on Facebook

Jesus on FacebookEugene Cho appears to have found Jesus on Facebook. OK, so it’s not really Jesus. But someone has created a spoof of what Jesus’s Facebook page might have looked like during holy week.

Pretty funny.

It also presents a fairly accurate account of the events of holy week.

A lot of people who are a part of the post-modern, Facebook generation have never read any account of the events of holy week.  While some people will inevitably chafe at the humor or scrutinize the theology, I think it’s a great way to get people talking and thinking about the death and resurrection of Jesus as we approach the Easter holiday.

What do you think?  Funny?  Not funny?  A good evangelistic tool or not?  Will you share this with your Christian friends?  How about those friends who are not Christians?
