The Ultimate Survivor

The reality of Good Friday according to reality television

Yes, the ultimate Survivor
heard his Father say “You’re Fired!”
as he buckled ‘neath the weight of Calvary’s gall.
Though our Jesus was exalted,
he became an Average Joe
in the greatest Trading Spaces of them all.

In his death fear was a factor,
yet he willingly gave in
to the torture all who stood around could see.
When the tribe at last had spoken
and his torch had lost its flame,
this Apprentice offered us immunity.

He was voted off the island
and denied his rightful place,
still he found a way somehow to reappear.
He was fully vindicated
as he put death in its place.
Yes, the ultimate Survivor still is here.

Christ is risen!
He is risen, indeed!
