Rabelais and Bakhtin strike in this chapter, as we highlight the “lower-stratum” humor of Rabelais and its power to bring the high and mighty down to earth. Although, a very different and less grotesque “upper-stratum” style, we see something similar in Jesus and His parables. The contrast of heaven and hell, or heaven and earth is the narrative behind these stories. My simple attempt at a Rabelaisian tall tale is an example of the power of humor to speak into the high places of corruption. Yet, I present this as a dangerous space from which to speak. Why is this such a dangerous place? And, why did it become more dangerous for Jesus, than most other people in history?
