If Jesus Twittered and updated his Facebook Status

So humor me for a moment. Can you imagine if the technology would have existed in Jesus' day for him to twitter or update his Facebook status. What would he have wrote during those moments we read of in the Scriptures? I imagine it would have looked something like this:

Read Matthew 16:13-28 to see the context of the story that Jesus is twittering/facebooking

Jesus' Twitter/Facebook Log:
  • just arrived in Caesarea Philippi with the is hot here! - 1:13 pm
  • I wonder if these guys following me around really know who I am? :-) - 2:01 pm
  • Just asked these guys if they knew who I was, good discussion...Peter of all people actually got it right! - 2:47 pm
  • told Peter that I was going to build my church on the truth of his claim...hope he understands... - 2:55 pm
  • thinking I need to tell these guys that I'm going to be dying soon...probably important to know - 4:19 pm
  • apparently Peter didn't get it, he got upset about the news...I called him Satan...was that too harsh? - 5:02 pm
  • I'm going to raise the stakes for these guys...following me is not going to be easy...will cost them EVERYTHING! - 6:45 pm
  • I love these guys...thats why I'm going to lay down my life for them...and the rest of the world - 8:15 pm
  • long day today...lots to do tomorrow...good night everyone! - 9:14 pm


  1. Brings it home...for our Lord was a daily twitterer with all those that stayed connected to His voice !

  2. supposedly God has a twitter account....
    Not sure who landed it and who does it...but yep...

  3. Jesus might have had an equal number of comments like:

    -great lunch with my buds today...but they brought 5,000 other people along with them and, of course, I had to provide the's all good though

    and like:

    -these guys are wearing me out! I mean, I love them, but sometimes they just don't get it!!!!

  4. Todd,

    Dude, you are spot on...its funny to think about what Jesus was thinking during some of these moments we read of...


    taking advantage of being God for a moment and walking on water...just freaked my boys out!!

  5. - not sure what's up with these dudes...was in a boat and this storm spooked them so I had to deal with that so I could catch a few z's
