Yes, just when you thought you'd seen it all. . . we now have this:
Yes, Beverly Hills Teddy Company is bringing the world a foot high, pull the string in his back, plastic Jesus! I don't know what he says. . CURIOUS THOUGH!!! I don't know how I feel about this? do you? He looks very caucasian! A lot of us in the West have been fed that 'image' of Jesus, eh? flowing locks, piercing blue, maybe green eyes? perfect white teeth. At least Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of the Christ" portrayed Jesus as looking somewhat swarthy. I had this childhood Bible that had a picture of Jesus seated on a 'stump' of some sort, a carpet of lush, green grass and beautiful flowers under his feet with a laughing child on each knee, a throng of joyous toddlers around and birds flying overhead. wow. . I wonder what He really looked like??
My first actual thought on this whole Jesus doll thing was: "Rod and Tod Flanders" would each have one!!!! ha ha. . . . I love the Simpsons!
Whaddya think about this doll? Apparently there is a "Messengers of Faith" series of foot-high talking dolls! Mary, Joseph, Moses, I don't know who all else. .
on that note, its time for bed. . .
