I'm listening to Radio 4's religious round up programme, Sunday. They have just had a piece about the shortage of donkeys for the Palm Sunday procession. Everyone wants one, the price has gone up, and owners of donkeys who have refused cash offers for them from shifty characters, find the next morning that their donkey has been stolen.
Some scholars have gone back to the scriptures and found that, though tradition holds that Christ was taken in to Jerusalem on a donkey, in the verses that describe this it can be translated as "pack animal". So now happy-clappy vicars go and borrow llamas for the procession.
A vicar of the old school was fairly unamused about the use of a South American animal in ancient Judaea, saying that you have to draw a line somewhere.
Of course if Jesus Christ lived today it's clear what means of transport he would have used.
