what humor is found in the Bible.
I did a paper on this subject in college.
The only place in the Old Testament where humor is mentioned is in the story of Jonah. (After preaching in the city, God allowed a plant to grow suddenly, to shade Jonah and "sooth his ill humor"😉
Obviously God found it funny to have Jonah be swollowed by a fish and spat up on the beach.
Personally i think it was funny the way God got Moses attention. Remember, Moses was raised as a prince of Egypt. Logic and reason. So here you have a bush, burning, and not consumed. (ok figure that one out, smarty pants)
