The Book Of Jordan

Jan 18th, 2010 by thegooddoctor in 100 Words

Abiasaph begat Hezekiah, and Hezekiah begat Jordan. Jordan married Immanuel, who bore him seven sons.

God looked down upon Jordan, and desired to test his faithfulness. God sent war and pestilence, killing Jordan’s family, and smiting him with leprosy.

Destitute and alone, Jordan entered the holy temple, and begged God for forgiveness. “I know not what I have done, but I submit myself to the Father’s benevolent mercy.”

God answered, “You are thinking of the New Testament God. You’ll have to wait a few hundred years to receive salvation. For now, I’m going to continue with the Old Testament retribution.”
