The Lesson

For all who teach...

Then Jesus took his disciples up the mountain and gathering them around
him, he taught them saying:

Blessed are the meek.
Blessed are they that mourn.
Blessed are the merciful.
Blessed are they who 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?"
Andrew said, "Are we supposed to know this?"
James said, "Will we have a test on it?"
Phillip said, "What if we don't know it?"
Bartholomew said, "Do we have to turn this in?"
John said, "The other disciples didn't have to learn this," and Matthew said, "What does this have to do with real life?"

Then one of the Pharisees present asked to see Jesus's lesson plans and inquired of Jesus his terminal objective in cognitive domain.

And Jesus wept...

I thought it was funny. I've had a bit of this the last few days.
