Nicky Gumbel the founder of the Alpha Course tells the story about how he met Eric Idle, one of the comedians behind the famous Monty Python films. They sat next to each other on a chair lift in the Swiss Alps just after Nicky had conducted a wedding. He said they had a great chat together. And Eric said that he wouldn't call himself a Christian, but he'll never forget what he said about Jesus. We look for comedy in the gospels. We look to poke fun at Jesus for the things he said, but we couldn't. We found that Jesus' teaching was brilliant and it all seemed to make sense. The truth is that Jesus' teaching has become the foundation of entire civilisations. Many laws that we have today are based on the teachings of Jesus. In John 14:6, Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No man will come to the Father except through me." The truth is even though Jesus had great teaching, the reason that he came was to point the way to the Father in heaven.
