Biblical Ninjas

December 9, 2009

I am currently working on videos for the carol service when someone miss-heard what I said and repeated back to me  “The Ninja of the Lord appeared to Mary?”

Which obviously led me to wonder how many places angels are mentioned in the bible where they could be replaced by Ninjas …

  • ninjas are stealthy and only allow themselves to be seen when they want to
  • ninjas are all-powerful and just one could smite an opposing army
  • ninjas appear from the shadows and often disappear in a blinding light
  • ninjas are feared and so their first words would be ‘do not be afraid’

So, here is my depiction of the Ninja-of-the-Lord appearing to Mary in the annunciation possibly (but probably not) coming to a carol service near you this Christmas season:
