Many books of the Bible wonderfully emerge from the experience of ancient Israelites and early Christians with each other and their God. "Holy" Bible doesn't mean these writings are divorced from real world, thoroughly human experience. One dimension of that experience often overlooked is humor. We'll take a journey through both testaments to highlight how humor is utilized to communicate the teachings and experiences of these ancient peoples. Part of the presentation is based on my published research, where I provide a literary/psychological study of the parables and proverbs of Jesus. This approach yields some interesting results. There are some very good stories here! You will enjoy.
