A learned Rabbi is being interviewed by a Christian fundamentalist TV station, to give some proper historical context for the stories of the Old Testament. Towards the end of the interview, the young, charismatically charged interviewer decides to try his luck and ask a couple of questions on Jesus and the New Testament. First he asks the Rabbi 'Are you familiar with the New Testament?'. The old Rabbi replies 'Yes my son, it gives a fascinating insight into the mindset of my people 2,000 years ago'. The presenter then asks 'Why do you think Jesus became so popular?'. The old Rabbi laughed 'If you've ever had to pay for your sons Bahmitzvah or your daughters wedding, you'd invite Jesus too. Water into wine, the trick with the loaves and fishes, he'd be top of the list invited to all the parties!'.
