Jesus Christ and Jury Duty

December 03, 2009

A woman in Alabama apparently changed her name to "Jesus Christ." Not sure why. Although it seems very odd and inappropriate, it did lead to a recent article with a couple of interesting lines. The article began with:

Jesus Christ was called for jury duty this week in Jefferson County, but was sent home for being disruptive.
Jesus the revolutionary. Apparently, what got the "Jesus Christ" in Alabama in trouble was something that got the real Jesus in trouble:
Instead of answering questions, she was asking them, a court employee in Jones's office said.
The religious and political leaders were often upset when the real Jesus did that to them. Even though this story is about a person who seems pretty unusual, there seems to be a good sermon illustration in it reminding us about the real Jesus.
