Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

This evening the doorbell rang. We live in a predominantly Jewish

suburban neighborhood of single family houses, a demographic fact

known far and wide. I opened the door and was greeted by a nicely

dressed man.


"I have come to bring Jesus to your home," he said.


I reacted almost immediately and asked, "Is he coming for dinner?"


The man said, "He will come any time you are ready."


A-ha, I had a live one. "Well, tonight we're having a stir fry. Does

Jesus like chicken?" I asked. The man's eyes glazed slightly.


I continued, "I don't know if he still keeps kosher,after all these

years, but this is a kosher home, so he'll be able to eat."


He gulped, "What?"


"You mean Jesus Christ, don't you?" I asked. He nodded. I continued,

"Born in Bethlehem?" He nodded and started to back away from my door.

I smiled and said, "If that's the guy, he's Jewish." As he started to

turn away, I said, "You're invited too, but no butter on your dinner

roll," and the guy almost ran down the walk.


My wife asked me who was at the door and I told her, "Some friend of Jesus."


She knows me. She shrugged. "And did you invite him in?" she asked.


I nodded, "Sure. I invited him and Jesus to dinner, but the guy ran away."


She walked back into the kitchen and said over her shoulder, "You

don't speak Aramaic, dummy. Jesus would have a lousy evening here."


I told you, she knows me. I forgot all about the language problem.
