Clever update, and thanks for the aha! moment.


I like your title, too.
I had a little trouble with the first line...seemed like I had missed something. After that the story developed well, and I love the ending.
Definitely a modern twist to this. That's probably how we'd see things today if Jesus were to have come in our days.
A very clever twist to the ending. I like it when a familiar story takes you by surprise.
I felt a bit uncomfortable with the reference to gypsies. Historically they didn’t originate as a nomadic people group until the 9th century. And given that Abraham, the esteemed father of Judaism, was himself a nomad, I’m sure that it would have worked as a pejorative in Jesus’ day.
