Regarding the human nature of our Lord, I think Jesus' first smile was during the Nativity, when He saw our Virgin Mary's smiling and caring face (He stopped crying and started smiling) and some of Jesus' first laughs were when St. Joseph was playing with Him.

It was a very intriguing story and I highly recommend it. It takes place in Medieval times so is not dated even though it is old.

I haven't heard about that novel, Jeanne, but seems interesting

There was a movie starring Sean Connery made from the novel, but the book is worth looking for. I am sure it is in libraries. As I recall there was quite a bit of Latin in it and it was kind of a kick trying (mostly in vain) to figure it out from my high school Latin classes many many many years ago. It had some really good mystery twists in the plot and I am making myself want to reread it!

I find this part humorous:

[Daniel]
{14:33} And the angel of the Lord said to Habakkuk, “Carry the meal that you have into Babylon, to Daniel, who is in the lions’ den.”
{14:34} And Habakkuk said, “Lord, I have not seen Babylon, and I do not know the den.”
{14:35} And the angel of the Lord seized him by the top of his head, and carried him by the hair of his head, and set him in Babylon, over the den, by the force of his spirit.

Poor Habakkuk.

Default There is a sense of humor in Heaven

I think Our Lord had a good sense of humor. I know God Almighty does. How else could one explain Him speaking of salvation when he knew how sinful we are?

The tone of black humor is so often in the Bible...


God saves Lot from Sodoma and Gomora , for being righteous...

And then his daughters rape him while his taking a nap...

Another tone, at the Ascension of the Lord:

Seeing a man going up to Heaven is something you don't see everyday, it's a once in a lifetime event and something to talk about. Like watching a rocket going up to the moon for the first time, but this is even more, for it's not a machine, it's a man going up! So seeing God-Man going up to Heaven must have been an event of amazement for many people.

Yet, then, while they where watching, two men came and said: "Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking up toward heaven?"

So God is telling them "Ok, show is over, get back to work"!
