WWJD - What Would Jesus Drive?

 VWleft

One theory is that Jesus would tool around in an old Plymouth because the Bible says, "God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury."

But in Psalm 83, the Almighty clearly owns a Pontiac and a Geo. The passage urges the Lord to "pursue your enemies with your Tempest and terrify them with your Storm."

Perhaps God favors Dodge pickup trucks, because Moses' followers are warned not to go up a mountain "until the Ram's horn sounds a long blast."

Some scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda but didn't like to talk about it. As proof, they cite a verse in John's gospel where Christ tells the crowd, "For I did not speak of my own Accord..."

Meanwhile, Moses rode an old British motorcycle, as evidenced by a Bible passage declaring that "the roar of Moses' Triumph is heard in the hills."

Joshua drove a Triumph sports car with a hole in its muffler. . ."Joshua's Triumph was heard throughout the land."

And, following the Master's lead, the Apostles car pooled in a Honda. . ."The Apostles were in one Accord." VWright


Note from Bro. Ernest:

There are numerous other Biblical references to transportation of choice. One mention in Matthew of a Rambler was in reference to "the heathens" and should be ignored.

In the Old Testament we find several references to the Cord, which you old timers may remember as one of the finest automobiles ever built. Much discussion goes not in its use, but in the color of choice. Exodus 28:37, 39:21, and Numbers 15:38 indicate that the color blue was much preferred during this time. But later we find in Joshua 2:21 that he went by the showroom because of the "crimson Cord in the window." Later in Ecclesiastes, silver was popular.

Much seminary teaching of the New Testament has given that when we get to Heaven, we will "all be in one Accord." This may be related to Exodus and Leviticus where the Accord was a popular loaner (Ex 25:2 "every man that offereth his own Accord"; Ex 35:26 "giving...their own Accord"; Ex 36:2 "such as of their own Accord had offered"; Le 22:18 & 22:21 "offering of his own Accord"; etc.).

But Jesus can drive anything He wants. After all, in Job 36 & 37, we find that Heaven is such a majestic place that we will have a Rolls Royce. (v36:29 "Rolls from Heaven"; v37:3 "Rolls across the heavens").


One Sunday night following a deep theological discussion, Bro. Barry questioned, "You have two Volkswagens on the page, but no mention of Jesus driving a Volkswagen???"

"Well," replied Bro. Ernest, "Jesus was called the Son of Man. And Volkswagen translates as "the car of the people. So he could drive one. But there are many instances in the Gospels where it is pointed out that 'Jesus will be delivered,' and that 'He would suffer many things.'"

"Or then again, when I originally wrote this page [8/20/01], that was all the graphics available."
