Silly game time!
OK, let me tell you this: Jesus existed. Really. And yes, he died on the cross, expecting daddy would bring him back to life within a few hours. Or days, or weeks, depending on daddy's mood at the moment. The ways of God are inscrutable, even to His own progeny.
What Jesus wasn't aware of, though, is he picked the wrong religious doctrine to start with. In this alternate world, it's Buddha who got it right: resurrection doesn't work, reincarnation is the only way out.
So, according to you, what kind of animal, or plant, or which historical (or fictional) person did Jesus reincarnate into?
(Given the long days he spent hung up to a piece of wood, I'd guess he was reborn a termite.)
If you feel uninspired, try with Muhammad. Or L. Ron Hubbard, or whomever you see fit - as long as this person is supposed to come back from the dead at some point.
