Jesus joins Jesus Army march and gets crucified

Funny the things you find on YouTube. This one appears to mix images of Jesus' crucifixion (courtesy of The Passion movie) with a Jesus Army march and rally in London. 1st century meets 21st century.

'Spoiler alert,' wrote the quick-witted Jesus Army member who first found this little gem: 'Jesus joins Jesus Army march and gets crucified'.

Oh dear, this will be cheesy, I thought. And it is a bit. But then again, the passionate Spanish singing and the juxtaposition of ancient and modern had a certain je ne sais pas quoi. After all, what we're doing, in our late postmodern, Western, technological, British way does stem - along with everything else that Christians do in Jesus' name - from those world-turning events outside Jerusalem, 2,000 years ago...
