Lighten Up with the Humor of Jesus

Lighten Up with the Humor of Jesus

Jesus had a sense of humor and finding it helps us lighten up.  This short, online course published by Udemy and WebucateU, is both humorous and scholarly.  Basic questions include 1.  Did Jesus have a sense of humor?  2.  What is humor and why types did Jesus use?  3.  How to find and interpret the humor? and 4.  How the humor helps our mental health. A study of the nature of hermeneutics is included. Video clips of humor and other forms of multi media are used with advanced reading and viewing provided.  This course which has an international enrollment, was created as a PhD project by the Rev. Dr. Gary Kush, PhD (professor, pastor, author, and professional comedian).  A license to use and edit the course is available from
