THE LESSON

(by an insightful anonymous author)

Then Jesus took his disciples up the mountain and, gathering them around him, he taught them saying:

Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Blessed are the meek.

Blessed are they that mourn.

Blessed are they who thirst for justice.

Blessed are you when persecuted.

Blessed are you when you suffer.

Be glad and rejoice for your reward is great in heaven…

Then Simon Peter said, «Do we have to write this down?»

and Andrew said, «Are we supposed to know this?»

and James said, «Will this be on the test?»

and Philip said, «What if we don’t remember this?»

and John said «The other disciples didn’t have to learn this.»

and Matthew said, «When do we get out of here?»

and Judas said, «What does this have to do with the real world?»

Then one of the Pharisees present asked to see Jesus’ lesson plan and inquired of Jesus’ terminal objectives in both the cognitive and behavioral domains…

Jesus wept.
