Comedians on God’s Family Issues

As my RD colleague Holly Welker noted yesterday, on Sunday’s SNL, the reliably hilarious Louis CK did a few minutes of stand-up, working his way around to the question If God is our father, what happened to our mom?

Another great comedian who has pondered the dynamics of God’s family is Eddie Izzard. Here, he imagines God chewing out Jesus for saying weird stuff at the Last Supper. (“Why didn’t you just say, drink this wine, it’s a merlot?”)

And for the Christian perspective, here’s comedian Michael Jr. pondering what it must have been like for Jesus’s little brother, the apostle James.
