Jesus would have preached using Twitter, says bishop

Have your say

JESUS would have taken to Twitter to spread his message if he was alive today, according to the Bishop of Durham.

As part of an Easter message, The Right Reverend Justin Welby said: “I sometimes hear people doubting whether social media is the way for the church, but if Jesus was walking the planet today there is no dobt that he would be tweeting.

“Social media is the modern equivalent of the village market place of its day.”

He added: “It is where many people, particularly our young people, receive important messages in their lives.”
