Christ had a disciple

who was a drunk.

He could have been an

apostle but he was

always drunk.

Too drunk to deny Him.

Too drunk even to run away.

Too drunk to write a gospel,

even a short epistle.


All day he lay drunk by a date palm,

just watching the ants go by.


(Julian O’Dea)

    He more than likely met Jesus at that wedding where the water was turned to wine. Always a great opener for Alcoholics Anonymous meetings when they start talking about their conversion to the faith. If that story is to be believed, the only people who didn’t get shitfaced drunk were Jesus and the dude who was recording the story.
