When Manchester City tweeted this morning asking followers to join in a Q&A with Spanish footballer Jesus Navas, using the hashtag #ASKJESUS, they were – probably knowingly – asking for trouble.
Twitter was soon flooded with tweets aimed at Jesus Christ, rather than the right winger, with plenty querying the details – and limits – of his miraculous abilities:
Others still raised questions about the inticacies of social media with the disciples:
Some wondered whether Navas himself might be better placed elsewhere on the field:
And one wondered whether he should consider other occupations entirely:
#AskJesus Which winger does God prefer, you or Moses?
Can you turn water into any wine you want, or is it just your standard house red? #askjesus
In the Bible when you asked Peter to follow you, did he ask for a follow back? #AskJesus
You were originally a carpenter yeah? I have some unfinished DIY projects about the house so I’m wondering if you do cash jobs? #AskJesus
