In honor of Christmas, here’s an MTV-style retelling of the story of the birth of Christ with the Virgin Mary’s episode of 16 & Pregnant. How much more of an intro do you need?
“Hi. I’m Mary. I’m 16 years old and I live with my family in a small town called Nazareth in the land of Galilee. When I’m not grinding wheat, making clothes out of wool, or chilling with my besties, you can probably find me at temple. I’m obsessed with praying.
“I recently got betrothed to a cute carpenter named Joseph. My dad traded me to him for a donkey, but we’re totally in love. I guess you could say I’m just a typical Israelite teenager! But all that’s about to change because… I’m pregnant with the son of God.”
I think my favorite part (other than the parchment drawings replacing the more modern notebook paper drawings) is when Joseph is feverishly playing cup and ball and Mary interrupts him and Joseph exclaims, “Uh! You just made me die!”
On a side note, would God be called the baby daddy or the baby The Father?
