The gospel lesson this past week was on John 4, where Jesus meets the Samaritan woman. Our church uses this lectionary insert which uses the NRSV translation of the Bible. As our pastor read the gospel lesson, I couldn’t help but LOL at verse 11:
11The woman said to him, ‘Sir, you have no bucket, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water?
The first thought my mind produced, was, “Jesus, you has no bukkit.” I couldn’t help it, my mind went into full LOL mode. This was the internal dialogue that went on inside my head:
JESUS: GIMME DRINK.
WOMAN: LOL! WTF?
JESUS: GIMME DRINK, NAO!
WOMAN: O RLY? U HAS NO BUKKIT. HOW U GET WATER?
JESUS: YA RLY! I DRINK UR MILKSHAKE! I DRINK IT RITE UP! WE CAN BE BFF!
WOMAN: NO WAI! GIMME WATER!
JESUS: I BEEN WATCHIN U FAP.
WOMAN: OMG! I SEE WHAT U DID THAR.
Yeah, pray for my immortal soul, or something.
