The Joy of Teaching
Then Jesus took his disciples up to the mountain and gathered them around
him, he taught them saying, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is
the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are the meek. Blessed are they that mourn.
Blessed are you when you suffer. Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is
great in heaven."
Then Simon Peter said, "Are we supposed to know this?"
And Andrew said, "Will we have a test on this?"
And Philip said, "I don't have any paper."
And Bartholomew said, "Do we have to turn this in?"
And John said, "The other disciples didn't have to learn this."
And Matthew said, "May I go to the bathroom?"
Then one of the Pharisees who was present asked to see Jesus' lesson plan
and inquired of Jesus, "Where are your objectives and your required
competencies in the cognitive domain?"
And Jesus wept.
