Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ guests

October 6, 2021 • 8:30 am

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “hardly,” shows Jesus hectoring Mo about self-serving verses in Mo’s “revelations from Gabriel” that appear in the Qur’an. (I haven’t been able to find the Qur’anic verse about that, but it is in the sunnah.

Remember, though that Jesus allowed his feet to be rubbed with expensive ointment (John 12:3-7, King James version):

 3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. 4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, 5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. 7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. 8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

What an arrogant git!

  1. Not sure where Jesus gets off mocking Mo for marrying his stepson’s wife.

    In Genesis 38, the Lord slew Onan for tossing one off instead of impregnating his brother’s widow.

  2. And let’s not forget that Jesus was unabashedly racist (or perhaps more accurately, xenophobic). Matthew 15:21-28 tells the story of a poor woman who had the misfortune not to be Jewish, who begged Jesus to cure her daughter. And what was the callous response from the all-loving Jesus? “It is not fair to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” It was only after the poor woman reminded Jesus that “even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table,” that Jesus condescended to cure the daughter.

    1. Jesus of the gospels performed miracles the same way Elvis used to give away brand new Cadillacs — randomly and capriciously.

  3. I hadn’t noticed Jesus reading the “K’RAN” before – although doubtless he has many times before and it’s down to my lack of observation.

  4. Seriously? If I had a following who viewed me as the Messiah, I think I’d be looking for a little bit more than just some fancy ointment on my feet. . . Osho Rajneesh scored 94 Rolls Royces.

  5. In 1992 we did a birding trip to Nepal and a local Nepali was our guide. At the end of the trip he invited us to dinner at his home. His wife cooked it but did not join us. After we had a nice and
    reasonably long conversation, dinner was served. After dinner was finished,our host (politely) made it clear that the visit was over so we said thank you and goodbye. I do not know whether he was
    Buddhist or Muslim or Hindu, but clearly this was a normal process: Talks, Eats, Leaves.

  6. It’s verse 53 of the Quran’s chapter 33. One of the most hilarious pieces of God’s eternal wisdom.

    “O Ye who believe! Enter not the dwellings of the Prophet for a meal without waiting for the proper time, unless permission be granted you. But if ye are invited, enter, and, when your meal is ended, then disperse. Linger not for conversation. Lo! that would cause annoyance to the Prophet, and he would be shy of (asking) you (to go); but Allah is not shy of the truth. And when ye ask of them (the wives of the Prophet) anything, ask it of them from behind a curtain. That is purer for your hearts and for their hearts. And it is not for you to cause annoyance to the messenger of Allah, nor that ye should ever marry his wives after him. Lo! that in Allah’s sight would be an enormity.”
