Author: Parody Theme: Beneath three crosses
We're on mount Calvary
Caught in an earthquake
No escape from reality
Tears fill my eyes
Black thundering skies above me
I'm just his follower
Maybe they won't kill me...
They whipped his back
Beat his head
Stabbed his heart
Left him dead
Now I go where he goes
My life doesn't matter to me ...
They just killed your son
Crown of thorns around his head
Nailed him up and now he's dead
His reign had just begun
But now they've gone and thrown it all away
Did you have let him die?
I cannot bear to face the sun tomorrow
Kill me now, take me now
Without him nothing matters
Christ's time had come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching like I'm dying
Next they're going to kill us
Oh, why'd you go?
You left us all behind to face the truth
(I'll follow where he goes)
I don't want to die
Now I wish I'd never been born at all
Dawn after sabbath
Running to the tomb
Earth is shaking
An angel rolls away the gravestone
Angels in white
Bright faces shine lightning
He is risen (He is risen)
He is risen (Like He told you)
He is risen from the dead
He is not here!
Grave keepers shaking -
they became as dead men
Angels descending heralding from heaven
"Christ is alive, you will see in Galilee"
You, Come and see
The place Adonai lay
YOU FEAR NOT!
No! He will not let you go
You FEAR NOT!
He will not let you go!
(You) FEAR NOT!
He'll never ever die!
never ever die!
(He will) never never ever die______
A le lu!
A Le Lu YAH!
Why are you here?
Go run and tell them!
He is risen from the dead
The devil couldn't keep him in the grave
So you thought they could keep Yahweh's son in the dirt?
I've been given all power in heaven and in earth!
You__ receive me
Why did you not believe me?
Just like I said:
I had to rise from the dead
Peace - be - to - you
Teach them to observe
All that I've commanded
And I'll be with you always
Even to the end of the age
I'll never let you go
Go and tell the whole world
Jesus Christ is risen!
Why Troy and Genie parodied The Classic "Resurrection Rhapsody (Bohemian Rhapsody..." for YOU
Always getting requests for Easter songs, so we took what was a very depressing lyric Freddie Mercury couldn't explain, and turned it into a triumphant celebration of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ... and the reaction: off the charts...hide notes

(I follow where he goes /
I have smashed death and hell and I'm coming to save
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
"Why do you seek the living among the dead?
The following are the resurrection accounts from the 4 gospels:
1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of YAHWEH descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goes before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
and when the sabbath had past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint Yahshua.
2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, the women came to the tomb at the rising of the sun.
3 And the women said among themselves, "Who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the tomb?" (For the stone was very great.)
4 And when the women looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away.
5 And entering into the tomb, the women saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and the women were frightened.
6 And the angel said to the women, "Be not frightened: you seek Yahshua of Nazareth, who was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him."
7 But go your way, tell Yahshua's disciples and Peter that Yahshua goes before you into Galilee: there shall you see Yahshua, like he told you.
8 And the women went out quickly, and fled from the tomb; for they trembled and were amazed: and they said nothing to any man; for the women were afraid.
9 Now when Yahshua was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
10 And Mary Magdalene went and told the disciples who had been with Yahshua, as they mourned and wept.
11 And Yahshua's disciples, when they had heard that Yahshua was alive, and had been seen by Mary Magdalene, didn't believe it.
14 Afterward, Yahshua appeared to the eleven disciples as they sat at meat, and rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they disbelieved the disciples who had seen Yahshua after he was risen.
15 And Yahshua said to his disciples, "You go into all the world, and herald the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he who believes not shall be damned.
...; the believers shall lay hands on the sick, and the sick shall recover.
19 So then after Adonai had spoken to his disciples, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of Elohim.
20 And Yahshua's disciples went forth, and heralded everywhere, Adonai working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.
1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women, and certain others with them, came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared.
2 And the women found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
3 And the women entered in, and did not find the body of Adonai Yahshua.
4 And it happened, as the women were much perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5 And as the women were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, the angels said to them, "Why seek you the living among the dead?
6 Yahshua is not here, but is risen: remember how he spoke to you when he was yet in Galilee,
7 Saying, 'The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be impaled, and the third day rise again.'"
8 And the women remembered Yahshua's words,
9 And returned from the tomb, and told all these things to the eleven apostles, and to all the rest.
10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, who told these things to the apostles.
11 And the women's words seemed to the apostles as idle tales, and the apostles didn't believe the women.
25 Then Yahshua said to the two men, "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
26 Ought not MessiYah to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, Yahshua expounded to the men in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
36 And as the disciples thus spoke, Yahshua himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, "Peace be to you."
37 But the disciples were terrified and frightened, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38 And Yahshua said to them, "Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts?
39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit has no flesh and bones, as you see I have.
44 And Yahshua said to the disciples, "These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things which were written in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me must be fulfilled.
Again, the Old Testament affirmed.
45 Then Yahshua opened the disciples' minds to comprehend the scriptures,
46 And Yahhua said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it behooved MessiYah to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be heralded in the MessiYah's name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And you are witnesses of these things.
49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but you stay in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endowed with power from on high.
50 And Yahshua led the disciples out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
51 And it happened, while Yahshua blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
52 And the disciples worshipped Yahshua, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
53 And the disciples were continually in the temple, praising and blessing Elohim. Amen.
1 The first day of the week comes Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, to the tomb, and sees the stone taken away from the tomb.
2 Then she runs, and comes to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Yahshua loved, and says to them, "They have taken away Adonai out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him."
3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the tomb.
4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the tomb.
5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet he didn't go in.
6 Then comes Simon Peter following him, and went into the tomb, and sees the linen clothes lie,
7 And the napkin, that was about Yahshua's head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the tomb, and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that Yahshua must rise again from the dead.
10 Then the disciples went away again to their own home.
11 But Mary stood without at the tomb weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the tomb,
12 And saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Yahshua had lain.
13 And the angels say to her, Woman, why weep you? Mary said to the angels, Because they have taken away my Adonai, and I know not where they have laid him.
14 And when Mary had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Yahshua standing, and knew not that it was Yahshua.
15 Yahshua said to her, "Woman, why weep you? whom seek you?" Mary, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, "Sir, if you have borne him hence, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away."
16 Yahshua said to her, "Mary." Mary turned herself, and said to Yahshua, "Rabboni;" which is to say, "Master."
17 Yahshua said to Mary, "Touch me not; for I have not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brothers, and say to them, 'I ascend to my Father, and your Father; and to my Elohim, and your Elohim.'
YAH is the ELOHIM and FATHER of Yahshua. Both we and Yahshua himself are subordinate to YHVH, the Father. Trinitarians need to remember that, and not mush Yahshua into the identity of the Father, like the confused "Athanasian" creed.
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen Adonai, and that he had spoken these things to her.
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, Yahshua came and stood in the disciples' midst, and said to them, "Peace be to you."
20 And when Yahshua had so said, He showed to the disciples His hands and His side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw Adonai.
21 Then said Yahshua to the disciples again, "Peace be to you: as my Father has sent me, even so send I you."
22 And when Yahshua had said this, he breathed on the disciples, and said to them, "Receive you the Holy Spirit:
23 Whose soever sins you remit, they are remitted to them; and whose soever sins you retain, they are retained."
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Yahshua came.
25 The other disciples therefore said to Thomas, "We have seen Adonai." But Thomas said to them, "Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe."
26 And after eight days again Yahshua's disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Yahshua, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace be to you."
27 Then said Yahshua to Thomas, "Reach here your finger, and behold my hands; and reach here your hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing."
28 And Thomas answered and said to Yahshua, "My Adonai and my Elohim."
29 Yahshua said to Thomas, "Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are they who have not seen, and yet have believed."
30 And many other signs truly did Yahshua in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
31 But these are written, that you might believe that Yahshua is the MessiYah, the Son of YHVH; and that believing you might have life through his Name.
Another amusing scriptural take on Bohemian Rhapsody by Apologetix:
Bethlehemian Rhapsody (2001)
Parody of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen
(1 Samuel 17)
Is this a real guy? Is he just fantasy?
'Cause of his grand size, no one's safe from fatality
Open your eyes, look up at Goliath, and see:
I’m dressed for war, boys. I need no infantry
Because I'll meet the one you propose
Israelites, pick my foe
Anyway, I'll win, so it doesn’t really matter to me
Mama, there's still no man who can come against this threat
You might figure now we're dead
Mama, Goliath is testing us
And know he's gonna know they’re all afraid
Mama, ooh ooh ooh, he's a mean and crazy guy
He'll come right back again this time tomorrow
Scaring us, scaring us -- cause he wants to meet in battle
Hooray! My time has come
Been a shepherd all my life -- but I'm taking on this giant
Goodbye, everybody -- but not for long
God will lead me all the while I face this brute
C'mon! Ooh ooh ooh!
(David you’re a wimp though) I'm not gonna die
The One who wins my battles is Lord of all
I see a little silly shepherd — not a man
What are you tryin' to prove? You’ll be chewed up and mangled!
Send a boy to fight me? Very, very tiny flea!
Gol-la-liath! Gol-la-liath! Gonna die you big galoot!
I'll kick your butt!
I trust the Lord but nobody trusts me
He trusts the Lord, but suffers from insanity
Daring to fight 'gainst this monstrosity
Evil comes, evil goes -- You will get deposed
I will not, no! I will not get deposed
Yes, you will (Repeat)
Your head will roll
No, no, no, no, no, no, no!
Come-to-me-a! Come-to-me-a! Let the eagles pick your bones
Beelzebub and his devils gonna fight for me for me for me
So you think you can scorn me and spit at my tribe?
So you think you’re above me just based on your size?
Oh, baby ... you ain't just duelin' David
You're gonna get it now -- cause God'll win my battle here
Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!
Guys I’m really flattered — yet it wasn’t me
YAH wins every battle — YAH wins every battle for me
David will be king soon
1 Samuel 17:45
David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of YAHWEH Almighty, the Elohim of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
Boneyard of unused lyrics:
The angel answered and said unto the women;
Fear not ye, I know ye seek Yahshua
who was crucified
HE IS NOT HERE
HE IS RISEN, (JUST) AS HE SAID
COME AND SEE THE PLACE WHERE THE LORD LAY
Go quickly, tell his disciples he is risen
behold, he goes before you into Galilee
There you shall see him, lo I have told you
Why are you here, he's risen from the dead
He is risen, he is risen, he is risen from the grave
just gotta tell all
Just gotta spread the good news
So you thought they could keep Yahshua in the grave? (The messiah would stay in the grave)
He is risen from death and he's coming to save
Ohhh... receive him
Why did you not believe him?
Just like he said
He had to rise from the dead FROM KING: Queen Hits, The King's Words
The Resurrection Rhapsody is stunning. I'm sharing it with my kids too.
I was very happy to see Jesus cutting up when he threw water at Mary Magdalene and then gave her a hug. Perfect counter to all the solemnity and the bloody torture
Thank you so much...I have always loved that tune but said "should I be singing it?!";
sad song too but now sooooo courageous. This made my eyes well up and heart tug; and you did an awesome job for the Lord. I must show this to my kids.
Can I send thi...
I so enjoyed the song, and reading through your [Warsong Life Story] book. You are amazing, and I love you for the stand you take. Blessings!
We continue to serve as missionaries, now to the largest field in the world, the USA. Part...
In 400 years, if the earth is still around, people will be singing the Resurrection Rhapsody, when history has forgotten what the Bohemian Rhapsody was, in the same way that no one remembers the original words to the bar-tunes which became the great hymns...
