Article: Three Times Jesus Used Sarcasm to Make a Point

Here’s a bird’s eye look at multiple times Jesus used sarcasm in his interchanges with other folks. The author uses these Biblical examples to tease out when sarcasm is appropriate, and when it’s the opposite of edifying. When someone tells me that irreverence, satire and sarcasm strikes a tone that isn’t Christ-like, I wonder what Bible they’re reading. Jesus fought against an entrenched power structure and often did so with cutting satire. If you don’t think there are any jokes in the Bible, you’re probably reading it with too much sanctimony.
