Jesus Freak: 12 Viral Jesus Memes Because God Can Take A Joke

By  | 


Jesus Freak: I am a Christian mom who was raised in a fundamental Christian home. I have questioned my beliefs and have come to love myself and God on my own terms. I’m raising my kids the same way. 

If you are a Christian without a sense of humor, GTFO right now. And now that we’ve gotten that out of the way and are in good company, I know you’re really going to enjoy these cream-of-the-crop viral Jesus memes that I’ve hand-picked from the depths of the Internet for you.

I know most people protest at the thought of making jokes about Jesus, but I disagree. I know the guy really well, and I promise he has an excellent sense of humor. I think it is also because I have been involved in church for so many years that I find Jesus jokes super funny—bonus points for well-played Biblical puns.

Before we dive right in, I thought I’d warm up the crowd with my favorite Jesus joke. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before:

I don’t understand why Christians are against gay marriage.

Jesus had two dads, he turned out alright.

Making jokes about Jesus is a practice as old as time. These hilarious Jesus memes are much more fun than whispering scripture in a quiet church on a Sunday morning. You’ll have a whole new appreciation for your risen Lord and Savior after this:

1. Hipster Jesus: The Original Cool Guy.



2. Story Time Jesus: Bitches Be Crazy.



3. Story Time Jesus II:  DON’T MAKE ME SAY IT AGAIN.



4. DudeBro Jesus: Do You Even Lift?



5. YOLO Jesus: You Got Me There…



6. Nine Lives Jesus: This Joke Never Gets Old.

    Lost it at “Do you even lift?” BRO.

    Blond Jesus would be way better if he were blond Willem Dafoe Jesus.

      I think Blond Jesus looks a lot like Kevin Sorbo as Hercules.

      Weird sidebar, but when my uncle was younger, he was a “Jesus model”, for when they wanted to put those overly glowing photos in the bibles.
      I dunno. It was a 70s thing I think?

    I have always loved #3, and the yahweh one just about killed me. My great grandparents always referred to God that way.

      I legit LOLed at Yahweh.

      I just texted the Yahweh one to my Beau because I know he hates terrible puns but his reaction to them makes me laugh more!

    #4 and the Jesus pencil drawing series #8 are my absolute favorites.

      Why is “fuck off, Jesus” so funny??

    • Bleu Cheese Bewbs

      August 27, 2014 at 2:39 pm

      I don’t know, but it makes me laugh so hard that I can’t breathe! Maybe it’s the whole “Jesus died a horrific death for your sins, the least you could do is let him act like a pesty little brother” thing?

    I always have and always will LOVE #11. Yes, that’s definitely a historically accurate portrait there.

    Sean has actually heard someone argue that Jesus wasn’t Jewish. When it was pointed out that, you know, he WAS, and he couldn’t be Christian because he’s the REASON there’s such a thing as Christian, the person apparently finally grumblingly accepted the point with this gem: “Fine, I guess Jesus was Jewish. But the Virgin Mary sure wasn’t!”

    • 2Well

      Wasn’t the whole point that He had to be Jewish? I’m pretty sure the prophecies were tribe of Judah, line of David, and all that. The whole point of Christianity is that Jesus is the Messiah from the prophecies in the Torah.

    Totally unrelated: WHY am I seeing a Sea World ad on Mommyish? W.t.f.

    Some of these are really funny. For some reason I love 7. It’s so stupid it’s funny. Don’t like number 4 though, that’s sick. I like the one before the actual list a lot 😛

      HAHAHAHAHAHA! Love this one!

    GOD I do not KNOW which one is my fav! I’m going with BRB LOL because it’s just so silly it’s beyond hilarious! Play Freebird is pretty freaking funny too!

    These were all pretty amazing.

    I can’t laugh at #4. The horrific descriptions of crucifixion I’ve heard in church (from pastors and medical doctors alike) along with being forced to watch the Passion of the Christ multiple times makes it wayyyyy too dark humor for me. I’ve struggled with self injury for over a third of my life, and Good Friday is one of the most triggering triggers ever for me.

    Love the rest though, especially 3, 7, and 11.

    I always loved Dinosaur Jesus. (They just took a picture of Jesus with a lamb and switched it with a Velociraptor.) I love how it looks like the Velociraptor is snuggling with Jesus. It just looks so content.

      To me, that raptor always looks like it’s just on the verge of eating Jesus’ face off.

    I am so glad I am no longer the church bulletin editor – I would use these and then totally get excommunicated.
