Pontius Pilate contracted his brows, and his hand rose to his forehead...

"Jesus?" he murmured, "Jesus -- of Nazareth?..." Pontius Pilate, prefect of Judea, is the only historical figure named in the Nicene Creed -- Coptic saint or eternally damned, his role in the greatest story ever told has been debated by many of history's greatest minds: St Augustine, Dante Alighieri, Tintoretto, John Ruskin, Mikhail Bulgakov, Monty Python. Unfortunately, there is very little historical evidence about him. His role in the death of a certain charismatic Galilean healer and apocalyptic preacher is still being debated today by theologians and historians alike. He is also, of course, the main character of The Procurator of Judea, the classic short story (complete text in main link) by Anatole France. (France's magnificent story has lately been tragically neglected by publishers, even if the author was one of his era's most acclaimed writers in the world -- he won the Nobel Prize in 1921 over Shaw, Yeats, Joyce, Thomas Hardy, D.H. Lawrence, and Proust, and when he died in 1924, hundreds of thousands of people followed his funeral procession through Paris).

There's trouble in River City.

Quite possibly the most fun I've ever had with Flash. Oh, yes, there's trouble in River City, and only Jesus, Hitler, Ryu, and Custom Guy can save it. Courtesy of the fine folks at Something Awful.

Dig him up!

Dig him up! Dig up that corpse! If you really love Jesus Christ, you'll haul his bones out of the ground to prove my daughter wrong! Dig up his grave! Pull out his tongue!

The Virginia-based Jesus has a new career.

The Virginia-based Jesus has a new career. He's amazing. If I had a sister, I'd want her to marry Jesus. In the email from Him that accompanied the link, He wrote that He earned 4 dollars for 5 minutes' work.

Ladies, the Lord is no longer available for dates

Ladies, the Lord is no longer available for dates except in the afterlife.
I was really shocked to read about this, as I thought this guy was long since dead. It seems that Jesus, from Jesus.com was involved in an accident this morning in Westchester Pennsylvania. I'm going to Church.

And here I thought it was spontaneous!

And here I thought it was spontaneous! Boy do I feel cheated. The whole thing was rigged from the start. Feh. I'd be curious to know if others have information.

The Hamster Dance may be fun, but I like the Jesus Dance. The background sound is amusing, 'My Plastic Jesus'.
