“And over here you see a fresco showing Christ at this one time when He was standing around naked with a naked woman and a snake in a garden.”
High School teacher: And here you see the crucifixion of Christ.
Student: Um… Actually, I think that would be St. Peter. ‘Cause he’s hanging head down? That’s how St. Peter got crucified according to legends. Plus, his hair is gray. Christ only lived to be 30.
High school teacher: …no, I think this is Christ. I think this is just a painting showing Christ on the cross right before they turned Him around.
