A Treasury of Theological Humor

Now, I’m sure much of this has been posted before throughout the theoblogosphere, but nevertheless I think it’s worth drawing our attention to some of the theological funnies out there. First, of all a site that has given me great amusement since college is known as The Brick Testament. Here we get to see countless Lego depictions of biblical stories, most of them quite hilarious. For example, from Deuteronomy 23:1:

‘A man whose testicles have been crushed…’


‘…or whose penis has been cut off…’

‘…must not be admitted to the congregation of Yahweh.’

There are countless other depictions of stories, parables, legal codes, and even a literalistic depiction of Paul’s command for women to be silent in the churches. If you’re looking for a laugh and a place to kill some time, look no further.

Now, if you want to extend into the further blasphemous, and still more funny, you should certainly check out the adventures of Mr. Deity. This series basically explores what it might bean for us to conceptualize God as a middle-aged metrosexual – who used to date Lucifer (Lucy), by the way. The best episode, I think is a parody of sorts of the Reformed notion of the covenant of redemption, in which the Father and Son together make a covenant that the Son will redeem the world by dying on the cross.

Now, if you’re still needing more theological laughs, you can turn to the always reliable Wittenburg Door, which makes for some great laughs, such as a hard-hitting investigative piece on the turf wars between evangelical social activists, with Jim Wallis and Tony Campolo going head to head (and Brian McLaren trying to bring them all together in an open and generous conversation about their common hatred of George Bush).

And if you finally need something to make you realize that you’ve spend too much time in front of the computer and need to walk away shaking your head, you can always check this out:
