If Jesus was born today it would be in a downtown motel marked by a helicopter’s flashing bulb. A traffic warden, working late, would be the first upon the scene. Later, at the expense of a TV network, an eminent sociologist, the host of a chat show and a controversial author would arrive with their good wishes -the whole occasion to be filmed as part of the ‘Is This The Son Of God?’ one hour special. Childhood would be a blur of photographs and speculation dwindling by his late teens into ‘Where Is He Now?’ features in Sunday magazines.
