Jesus the Mistaken Jesting Apocalyptic

James McGrath tells us that when Jesus described the end of the world, and then told his disciples, "I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened" (Mark 13:30), it was the first April Fool's Day joke in history. So there you have it. Jesus wasn't wrong, he had his tongue planted firmly in cheek.
