Facebooked Nativity


Would Mary and Joseph have been on Facebook? If you can stretch credulity to imagine Facebook being available when Quirinius was governor of Syria, you might as well stretch it all the way and say yes, in which case you might enjoy this video:

It makes most sense if you are a Facebook user yourself and know practices such as status updates, replies, liking and setting up groups. Particularly poignant is when Joseph shares his support for Mary after his own angelic visitation and a bunch of people immediately unfriend him. That is one of the parts of the story that is often ignored but, since people haven’t changed that much, rings true through the overall conceit.
