Radical Rabbi Advocates Boozy Parties

Controversial ‘Teacher’, known commonly as Jesus of Nazareth, embarks to undermine social standards, opting rather for a care-free, ‘live and let die’ attitude to life.
May 13th AD 32
Having recently travelled to the area of Galilee, the Nazarene quickly drew attention to himself in the way he interacted with the infirm, claiming to heal people from their illnesses, as well as consorting with known offenders and con artists.  His action were not missed by the local Pharisees, who were concerned what this effect this new bohemian behavior might have on the community. But it was not until his evening activities took place that those of traditional family values were also greatly unsettled.
“One of the swindlers in town got chatting to this Nazarene, and invited him over for a big party at his house, boasting about the food he’d have and how much drink will be available,” says one of the distressed mothers of the town.
It comes to no surprise that the ‘Teacher’, who lives the lifestyle of a vagabond, would so openly welcome the opportunity to squat in a warm home and drink copious amounts of alcohol. 
It was reported that the Pharisees personally went to address this man the morning following the big carouse, which left many neighbours disturbed late into the night. They stated that they felt it is their personal responsibility to protect the people from the jeopardizing activities this man so forcefully endorses. Sources confirm that the Nazarene’s response to their charges were unsettling for the authorities to hear; “Despite our attempts to reason with the man, he stood by his convictions, telling us repeatedly to ‘make the most of it’ and ‘party on while you can.’ We want to make it clear to the people we do not condone this reckless behaviour and will do our utmost to ensure our town does not become riddled with party-goers and drunkards.”
Towns people have found solace in the rumour that this man does not stay in any one place for a long time, and trust that their genteel way of life with return to normal upon his departure. The authorities however have decided to open up a further investigation into the so called ‘teachings’ of this Nazarene, for fear of an insurgent rising amongst the questionable characters he chooses to fraternize with.

Sleep With Who Ever You Like! Adultery is 'Ok' Says Radical 'Rabbi'

Jesus of Nazareth does it again...
Dec 14th AD 31

In Jerusalem today we learnt that whilst he is quick to preach his now archetypal radical message, Jesus doesn't seem to like be posed with difficult questions. Our nation's leaders applied some much needed scrutiny to this vagabond-preacher today in the Temple Courts. A woman caught in the act of adultery was brought before Jesus to pose for him the straight-forward legal question of how she should be punished.

For several minutes, rather than answer the question, he stalled for time by drawing on the ground. When finally pressed for an answer Jesus replied: "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." Of course, none of us would claim to be perfect but surely - most will be asking - you have to draw the line somewhere? Apparently afterwards Jesus encouraged the woman to go free and hinted that no condemnation was due her! Although the exact words he said are known only to her and she could not be located for comment.

No amount of clever word play can ever excuse immorality. Nothing but the complete collapse of decent society is to be found is we allow ourselves to follow that path.

"Don't Try This At Home!" Warn Leading Doctors

Normadic Preacher's Actions Leads to a Spate of Attempted 'Spitting Cures'
. .
Jan 2nd AD 32

All I can say is, ‘Please do not try this at home’ said a leading doctor today. Over the last few days there has been a spate of people spitting and claiming it cures all ills. Given we all know the risks of spitting, why has this become a problem of epidemic proportions?

It would appear that the disreputable, nomadic preacher ‘Jesus of Nazereth’ is at the root of this current craze. The first incident occurred somewhere between Sidon and Galilee in the district of Ten Towns. Jesus was seen to stick his fingers in a man’s ears and spitting on to his tongue! This man was supposedly deaf and mute and ‘cured’ by these actions. 

The second incident occurred at Betsaida. It is reported that Jesus attempted to take a blind man from the sight of villagers, however they followed and were disgusted to see Jesus spit in his eyes. Jesus was clearly aware that this behaviour would lead to significant criticism as he asked both people not to talk about them.

The increasing disreputable behaviour of this self-styled rabbi is leading to a lot of concern amongst the authorities. In the meantime one can only hope that no-one tries to copy his erratic behaviour.

The Multicutural Rabbi!

Jesus of Nazareth seen consorting with a Samaritan Woman!
Nov 30th AD 31

The sudden appearance of radical preacher Jesus of Nazareth has certainly caught the nation's attention. Whilst some support his radical teaching as being just the breath of fresh air we need his behaviour and teaching remains very much on the edge of the established debate.

Most recently, Jesus went to a Samaritan village and spend a significant amount of time talking with the locals, most specifically with a woman of a somewhat dubious reputation. The strong, historic differences between the Jewish people and the Samaritans have meant that the two cultures have been separate for centuries. It will come as a shock to many of our readers that a man who presumes to be a Jewish teacher was heard to encourage a mixing of the two peoples. One witness told us that Jesus said that the Jews and Samaritans should now worship together. Many will be asking how it's possible for any true Jew to so compromise his beliefs as to accept foreign practises in Judea. Some may even think it blasphemy.

Once again, the words and actions of Jesus are not what we have come to expect from moral leaders and this threat to the Jewish way of life that he proposes will be deeply troubling to many Jews who feel their way-of-life is already under severe threat.

Shocking Violence IN The Temple!

Jesus of Nazareth starts riot in the most sacred of places
March 4th AD 33

The Temple today was desecrated after self-styled preacher and 'messiah' Jesus of Nazareth burst in and started a riot. The exact motivation for this outburst which will shock many is unclear but eyewitness accounts suggest Jesus was objecting to the long-established traders who provide sacrifices for everyday worshipers.

Around sunrise yesterday Jesus and his usual bunch of thugs burst into the temple and began intimidating local businessmen and disrupting the usual peaceful running of our most holy site. Several stall-owners lost all their stock as birds and lambs broke free -  leading to the horrific sight of the Holy Temple looking like a farmyard. We have also heard reports of looting from the disrupted stalls.

The clear-up continues today and the anger amongst local businessmen and religious leaders was obvious: One told me "I'm working hard for a living whilst he scrounges off others, then he does this... I'm lost for words" whilst another said "There's no excuse for this kind of vandalism - all we're trying to do is make living." One of the Teachers of the Law was incandescent with rage "This kind of outrage is an offence before God, it's bad enough for him to be spouting his nonsensical teaching in public but to desecrate the temple in this way is unforgivable!"

Most shocking of all, perhaps is that condemnation of Jesus' actions was not universal with some claiming that the various temple businesses have been profiteering at the expense of earnest worshipers for years. The suggestion of over-charging and dishonesty was vehemently and angrily denied by the Chief Priest.

Irresponsible Behaviour Leads to a Rise in People Seeking Emergency Health Care and Fall in Synagogue Attendances

July 4th AD 30

Visiting the clinic in Galilee was an unpleasant business, waiting times are now up to an intolerable 3hrs. A spokesperson for the clinic stated the cause as an unprecedented number of people concerned with the risk of Leprosy. This appears to have come about after the irresponsible behaviour of the radical preacher ‘Jesus of Nazereth’

The consensus of opinion of all involved is deep shock. One bystander reported the incident thus, ‘I was out for a stroll and came across a large crowd following a man, I pushed through the crowd to see what was going on, I was shocked to see the leader of the crowd touching a man with leprosy. What made it worse was the fact he then told him to seek out a priest. Everyone knows to avoid people with leprosy as it is so highly contagious’

A spokesman for the synagogue refused to speak about whether or not the man had attended, however stated that there is no risk of contagion as the synagogue has been ritually and spiritually cleansed.

Jesus' Single Mother Shame Exclusive

June 10th AD 31

We can exclusively reveal that radical and popular preacher Jesus, 'son-of-Joseph-the-carpenter' was in fact the son of single mother who used his imminent birth to demand free-accommodation.

Not much has been known about the background of Jesus of Nazareth since he appeared on the scene - preaching his radical (and some would call dangerously insurgent) message. Even less was known about his family, but months of painstaking research can now reveal the dark and shameful truth.

We journeyed to the small and unassuming town of Nazareth and spoke to many of the older residents who remember Jesus as a boy. They told us that Joseph and Mary had returned to the town some two and a half years after Jesus was born - what they were doing in that time remains a mystery. The carpenter's family always claimed they were staying with relatives in Bethlehem for all that time but we have also spoken to residents there who told us the small family was seen to flee in the middle of the night for no apparent reason and the next day there were soldiers everywhere.

Upon their return to Nazareth, they all seemed to want to put the past behind them and forget about those early years, and now we know why. One older local, who wished to remain anonymous, told us that when Joseph and Mary left Nazareth around the time of the great census, Mary was already heavily pregnant and they were not married. "There were rumours at the time," she said "That Joseph isn't even the father" but what is certain is that Mary was a single mother in Bethlehem where another source told us "It's unbelievable what some people will try to get away with, but that Mary woman used her imminent labour to demand someone put her up... I mean it's hardly anyone else's fault that she's in that condition is it? And I don't see why that should mean she gets free room and board!"

What is clear is that Jesus has sought to distance himself from his family - denying any connection with his mother and brothers when they came to try to persuade him from his provocative 'ministry.' Perhaps this is the reason he's so ashamed?

Jesus Responsible for Fall in House Prices

March 6th AD 30

Radical preacher, Jesus of Nazareth was today involved in yet another scandal as he was speaking in a private house in Judea. A large crowd had gathered to hear him speak and it seems that some very keen to meet him had been unable to get in. Not to be deterred this small band of hooligans climbed on to the roof of the private residence and broke through the roof so they could lower their allegedly-disabled friend to see the enigmatic rabbi.

On-lookers were said to be shocked when parts of the roof started falling on to the crowd gathered inside - although there are no confirmed reports of serious injuries at least one source told us they saw several people covered in blood. Yet the most shocking part of this story is that having committed their act of vandalism and interrupted Jesus speaking, rather than condemn such an antisocial act, Jesus reportedly commended them and was then said to make some weird claim of divinity before the 'disabled' man was seen to walk out of the front of the house.

We found one of the neighbours who said "I always knew he was faking being crippled, too lazy to work, that's his problem - day after day begging in the streets - and now he's been miraculously 'healed' - it's just obscene what some people try to get away with." We spoke to several locals who were concerned that such blatant acts of vandalism in broad daylight would lead to a collapse in property prices in the town and that the sooner Jesus left the better.
