Then Jesus took his disciples up on the mountain and gathering 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 they that search for justice.
Blessed are you when you suffer, be glad and rejoice for your reward is great in Heaven.”
Then Matthew said: “Are we supposed to know all this?”
And James said: “Will we have a test on this?”
And Phillip said: “I don’t have any paper to write this down.”
And Bartholomew said: “Do we have to hand this in?”
And Andrew said: “Is this for marks?”
And John said: “Other disciples didn’t have to learn this.”
And Simon Peter said: ”I have three other assignments and I work on Thursday nights.”
Then one of the Pharisees who were present asked to see Jesus’ lesson plan and inquired of Jesus: “What is your anticipatory set and your objectives in the cognitive and affective domains?”
And Jesus wept!!
