The Lesson

Then Jesus took his disciples up to 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 the merciful,
Blessed are they that 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 we have a test on this?"

And Phillip said ....

"I don't have any paper!"

And Bartholomew said ....

"Do we have to turn this in?"

And John said ....

"The other disciples didn't have to learn this!"

And Matthew said ....

"Can I go to the boys' room?"

And Judas said ....

"What does this have to do with real life?"

Then one of the Pharisees who was present asked to see Jesus' lesson plan and inquired of Jesus:

"Where are your anticipatory set and objectives in the cognitive domain?"

And Jesus wept.
