A few years ago, another believer and I had an extended discussion over whether Jesus has a sense of humor or not.
“How can you possibly believe Jesus could laugh about anything with all the problems in the world? Like AIDS, Israel, terrorism, abortion, poverty, starvation, war,” he proclaimed. “I just don’t think you know Jesus as you should.”
“Well, maybe I don’t know Him as I should,” I said, conceding the point. “But if He’s not laughing at both of us right now, He’s missing a golden opportunity. We’re certainly silly.”
The conversation went down hill from this point onward.
So, what do you think? Does Jesus have a sense of humor? If so, give some examples.
