LYRICS

HOTEL CAN'T AFFORD YA
Parody of "Hotel California" performed by the Eagles and
Written by Don Felder, Don Henley & Glenn Frey (Luke 2:7)

From a dark desert highway we pulled into the inn
Rome called for a census -- I was from Bethlehem
Up above from a distance a star was giving me light
My wife was heavy cause her child was due -- We had to stop for the night
So we stood in the doorway of Bethlehem Hotel
And I was thinking to myself, "I hope to Heaven they'll give me some help"
But they told us no-can-do and they sent me away
"There's a place around the corner though where you both can stay"
Welcome, but the hotel can't afford ya
Such a lovely place but we're out of space
Ran out of room and the hotel can't afford ya
It's the time of year -- with the census here
My wife was definitely gifted -- That's what the Lord's angel said
She was about to have a baby boy while still virgin
Spent the night in a barnyard -- cheap slumlord's rent
Some night to remember -- some night to forget
So because of what happened I was grieving for my wife
I said, they probably haven't cleaned in here since B.C. 65
Animal voices were calling for straw and hay
Keep you up through the middle of the night just as if to say
Welcome, but the hotel can't afford ya
It's a lovely place, but we're out of space
Holiday rush and the hotel can't afford ya
What a nice surprise for your silent night
He was born that evening and shepherds came that night
And they said, We are all just visitors here -- of the Holy Christ
And in an ass's manger, they found the boy asleep
They started gettin' teary eyed so they went back to their sheep
Last thing I remember there were wise men at the door
They had a bunch of packages from the place they were before
We're late, said the wise men, We had problems Christmas Eve
We've been checking out your shiny light all through the Middle East

Luke 2:7
... and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


GO RIGHT NOW
Parody of "All Right Now" performed by Free and
Written by Paul Rodgers & Andy Fraser (John 1:29-51)

There we stood with John B. -- Simon's brother, Andrew, and me
He said, "Hey, look at this -- now baby, there's the
Lamb of God who frees us from sins!"
I said, "Hey, what's he sayin', baby? Andrew, could you please explain"
"No time to waste," oh, he said to me
"Let's move before the Savior walks away!" Ow!
Go right now! Baby let's go right now!
Go right now! Baby let's go right now!
We took a walk to Christ's place -- Talkin' with the dude all the day
When we left, Andrew says, "Maybe -- I'll get Simon, should we get James?"
He said, "Bro! Come over fast! Cause I think the Lord's here at last!"
He said, "What? The Lord above?" But Simon found out quickly enough! CHORUS

John 1:35-36
The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"



APOSTLE ME
Parody of "Rock 'n Me" performed by the Steve Miller Band and
Written by Steve Miller) Matt. 10:1-4, Luke 6:13-16, Acts 1:26, 1 Cor. 9:1,
5-6)

Well, if you're lookin' real hard and you're tryin' to find the apostles
But it just keeps gettin' tougher on your brain
Then I've got to do my part 'cause I know 'em by heart
I've got an easy way to say their names
Well, their names ain't fictitious so now don't get suspicious
Cause I know them and they're friends of mine
And I know that it's true that I can sing them for you
They'll come back to me if I make 'em rhyme
So keep apostl'y namin' Keep on apostl'y namin'
Keep on apostl'y namin' Keep on apostl'y namin'
Simon called Peter, James & John & Andrew, Levi, nicknamed Matthew
Philip, Doubting Thomas and James the Less
Simon called the Zealot, and Nathanael
Who's called Bartholomew, then Jude-Thaddaeus
Keep on apostl'y namin ...
Judas is missin' -- he lost his position but you know there were two men in
line
And you know they did choose Matthias to fill his shoes
And Paul would come and join them in his sweet time
Simon called Peter, James & John & Andrew, Levi nicknamed Matthew
Philip, Doubting Thomas and James the Less
Simon called the Zealot, and Nathaniel
Who's called Bartholomew, then Jude-Thaddaeus CHORUS

Matthew 10:2-4
These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.


JESUS (SERMON ON THE MOUNT)
Parody of "Venus" performed by the Shocking Blue
And written by Robbie van Leeuwen (Matthew 5-7)

He taught us on a mountain top -- a sermon that was clear and plain
A sermon on duty and love -- and Jesus was His name
He taught it! Yeah, baby, we got it!
Well, come to Jesus -- and you'll find out -- that's your messiah!
His lessons had us mesmerized -- amazin' every man He met
That was because my Jesus -- taught like no-one else had -- Wow!

Matthew 5:1
Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him ...


TEMPLE PHYSICIAN
Parody of "Pinball Wizard" performed by the Who and Elton John
And written by Peter Townshend
(Isaiah 35:5-6, Matthew 11:4-5, 21:14)

Ever since I was a young boy I prayed in the synagogue
That somehow the Messiah would rush to save us all
But I ain't seen nothing like Him in any Jerusalem hall
The deaf, dumb and blind came -- the Lord Jesus healed them all
They says He's got an attitude -- He's not part of the regime
Healin' all the lepers -- although they're unclean
Breakin' men's traditions -- that didn't count at all
The deaf, dumb and blind came -- the Lord just healed them all
He's a temple physician; a pastor to the sick
A temple physician -- one touch just does the trick
Why do they think He's trouble? I don't know! Some say He's no good
And when John the Baptist was havin' some doubts in jail
He sent people to Christ to ask Him, "Hey, Christ, what's the deal?"
All Jesus said was, "Relay -- everything you saw
The deaf, dumb and blind came -- the Lord just healed them all"
The Romans want a very evil king
But God just handed down Israel's crown to Him
Even Sabbath Day He's available -- Jesus needs no rest
His disciples believe in Him -- and we just must confess
If God's savin' sick and sinners -- maybe we should call
The deaf, dumb and blind came -- The Lord Jesus healed them all

Matthew 11:4-5
Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor."



PARABLE GUY
Parody of "American Pie" performed and written by Don McLean (Mark 4:33, 34)

A long, long time ago, I can still remember how amusing He could make things
sound
And I knew if I'd had my pen, that I should take notes even then
And maybe then I'd have them for you now
But every word He said was clever -- and every parable I remember
Matthew has recorded -- and Luke, I think, has more yet
I can't remember if I try -- what I learned about in junior high
But some things taught by Jesus Christ remain, refusing to die
So bye, bye Mr. Parable Guy
Got my blessin' through the lessons taught by Heaven's Messiah
Them good old days of seekin' wisdom divine
Sittin' list'nin' to the Parable Guy -- Listen to the Parable Guy
Did you like the Book of Luke and do you like fables that are true
If you like I'll tell you some
Cause a true believer's crop is slow when seed gets wasted on the road, but
Plant 'em deep and plow the land and they'll grow
Now I know the storms will come again so don't start your mansion in the
sand
He won't pick off the fruits if that fig tree didn't produce
And if a lowly widow won't give up she can make her case and win a wicked
judge
But the new wine is powerful stuff -- it waits for you to try
You gotta drink it CHORUS
Now, if a shepherd's sheep are all at home and one goes out on his own alone
Well, that's not where he needs to be
Won't the shepherd search for the missing sheep and of course, a woman
doesn't sleep
Till the coin she can't find is retrieved
Oh, and while the kid was gettin' down and spendin' all his money in town
Of course his father yearned -- oh, for him to return
And all the weddin' guests who don't get smart
The Lord just catches them off guard
And leaves them virgins in the dark the day the groom arrives
Bells were ringin' CHORUS
Selfish wealth it isn't gonna help if your barns are stocked like a fallout
shelter
Grain piled high with all your cash
The wedding has a lot of guests -- Today it's time for your formal best
I'd suggest you follow guidelines when you dress
Now at halftime there were things to do so the farmer paid another crew
They all got paid for that -- Oh, but the jealous ones were mad
And as the treasure finder pays takes the field -- The merchant says this
jewel's a steal
They'll lose it all for such a deal and pay the fullest price
They got the kingdom CHORUS
Oh, and there they were all in one place from every nation, tongue and race
With goats and lambs apart in pens
So c'mon, drag the fishnet, catch the fish -- Don't splash that on your
candlestick cause
Flour with the leaven's gonna spread
Oh, and as they robbed him on the way the man was left in disarray
No neighbor stopped to help -- And he couldn't save himself
And as a stranger finally pulled aside -- He spied the battered Israelite
I saw Him save him gladly with delight -- He made it through the night
He was strengthened CHORUS
The little children sang the blues and they blasted forth some happy tunes
But things just failed to turn their way
"I went out and I made some more!" said the servant who got his reward
But the man that had excuses couldn't pay
And when the wheat was filled with weeds
The mustard climbed from the smallest seed
And all the birds were hopin' the birdhouse now was open
And the thing that I admire most from all those funny parables
They taught the lessons for the folks whose faith was rooted in Christ
Cause they were seekin' CHORUS

Mark 4:33-34
With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.


LOVE & KISSES
Parody of "Rock and Roll All Nite" performed by Kiss and written by
Paul Stanley & Gene Simmons (Deut. 6:5, Matt. 22:36-38, Mk. 12:28-30)

You know Moses and the things of God -- The 10 Commandments and the Jewish
laws
You try to find which one's the greatest
You say you wanna know where it is -- It's part of Deuteronomy chapter 6
You try verse five; you'll find it baby
You read about it -- You need to shout it
I love the Lord with all my might -- my heart and everything (4X)
The people came to Jesus Christ for a while
They looked for answers and they liked His style
You tell us, Christ, which law's the greatest?
"Love the Lord with everything you've got,"
Jesus said, "Well, that's My first law
"Do all this while you love your neighbor."
Don't even doubt it -- You need to shout it CHORUS

Deuteronomy 6:5
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.



I'LL PREPARE FOR YOU
Parody of "I'll Be There for You" performed by the Rembrandts
and written by M. J. Skloff, D.L. Crane, M. F. Kauffman, D.C. Wilde,
P.R. Solem & A.S. Willis (John 14)

So Jesus told His disciples, I'm gonna go away
But where I go you know. They all cried, Please explain.
He said, You've all been stuck in second grade
If you haven't seen the Way, the Truth, the Life is here in your face ... but
I'll prepare for you ... prepare a place up above
I'll prepare for you ... 'cause I've been there before
I'll prepare for you ... and you prepare for me, too.
I'll send another friend to help you on your way
You'll learn from Him, you'll go far. Please don't be afraid
The Father helped me do the things I did
But you even will do greater works than that if you believe -- that
CHORUS
The world could never know Him -- The world could not receive Him
So you're the only ones who know what it's like to know Him
There'll come a place and day when He'll come to live inside you
Soon when all of this happens you will know the words I said were true.
LEAD
Seems like you've all been stuck in second grade
If you haven't seen the Way, the Truth, the Life is here in your face, but
CHORUS

John 14:3
(Jesus is speaking) "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am."


I HAVE TO DIE FIRST
Parody of "Eye of the Tiger" performed by Survivor and written by Frankie
Sullivan & Jim Peterik (John 12:23-24, Mk. 8:31, 9:31-32, 10:34, Lk.
18:31-33, 1 Cor. 15:26,55)

"I'm risin' up," that's what He said
"It's My time -- let's commence this
In three days I will be back from the dead
There's a plan to fulfill in My life"
So many times, He'd talked in the past
About His passion and glory
"Just like the grain used for wheat has to die
I must die, so the wheat can arise"
He said, "I have to die first to fulfill all the signs
Risin' up through the power of My Father
And at last when the hour has come you'll know I was right
And I warned you before this that I had to die first"
Facin' death, in Gethsemane
Sweatin' blood, feelin' lonely
He prayed to God, "You can take this from Me
If You will," but He still had to die
He said, "I have to die first in this terrible fight
Risin' up through the power of My Father
And my last lonely hour I'll be prayin' tonight
But I want you to know this -- that I Have to die first"
Risin' up, hate filled the mob
Took the Lord up to Calvary
Read the sentence, He was nailed to the cross
But the Man that they killed is alive
He said, "I have to die first -- it's a strange way to fight
Risin' up through the power of My Father
And at last I'll arise and put the devil to flight
And I warned you before this that I have to die first
That I have to die first"

Mark 8:31
He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again.


DIDN'T JUST DIE
Parody of "Live and Let Die" performed by Paul McCartney & Wings
And written by Paul & Linda McCartney (1 Cor. 15:12-20)

When He was hung on the cross like a common crook
His accusers said He was just dead
(You know they did, you know they did ...)
But it was everlasting life that He was livin' -- And they'd get a surprise
He didn't just die! Didn't just die! Didn't just die! Didn't just die!
LEAD
What He did matters to ya -- Man He did a job for you -- you couldn't do
yourself
He had to save ya from the pit of Hell LEAD
Now you still say He was just dead (You know you did, you know you did ...)
But He could never save this world unless He's livin'
Don't you give up on Christ -- He didn't just die!

1 Cor. 15:14
And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.


DIED AND ROSE
Parody of "China Grove" performed by the Doobie Brothers
And written by Tom Johnston (1 Cor. 15:3-5, 1 Thess. 4:14)

When the Son come down He was deep within the ground surrounded by a giant
stone
And it's no surprise that on the Sabbath day all His pals stayed home
But things were all about to change and they never were the same
Well, we're talkin' cause He died and rose -- Lord, died and rose!
Well, their leader, Simon Peter, and John the Apostle, they took a walk to
the tomb
And the Gospel came alive when they arrived and they found an empty room
But they had forgotten His claim that He'd resurface again
Well, we're talkin' 'cause He died and rose -- Lord, died and rose!
Then He came when the group met Sunday -- They'd locked the doors and shut
the room
But standin' right among them was the man they called Lord
You just should have seen the look in their eyes!
But Thomas would doubt it for eight more days
Till Jesus came when he was there -- He just took one look and he believed!
LEAD

1 Cor. 15:3-4
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures


YOU MAY BE BRIGHT
Parody of "You May Be Right" performed and written by Billy Joel (John
3:19-21)

Friday Christ had just departed, Saturday Christ's grave was guarded
Sunday came and Christ came out again
And the stone they had in front was a sturdy heavy one
That they all were much too weak to roll away
Now the men they had to guard that stone were top defensive guys from Rome
Even though Christ's own disciples were afraid
But the stone was knocked aside and He made it out alive
So you said they only moved Him from His grave
You may be bright -- I say you're crazy
Hey, but you just may need illuminated a little more
Turn on the light -- it's kinda shady
My faith is strong because I know the way He died
Remember how they crowned Him there 'cause Rome had no electric chair
They slowly tortured folks until they died
Yeah, the Romans scourged Him and -- they said "Take this cross and stand
Cause we'd like you, Boy, to drag this for a while"
Then on top of all the things they'd tried, when Christ was done they
crucified Him
Someone's spear went straight through at His waist
But you say the Man just swooned and they all were just confused
And He really was just in a coma state
You may be bright -- I say you're crazy
Hey, but it just may be excuses that you're lookin' for
If you hate the light -- It's too late to save ya
My faith is strong because I know the way He died
You may be bright -- I say you're crazy
Hey, but I just can't be the humanist you're lookin' for
Throw out the lies -- don't try to faze me
You say we're wrong because I know you hate the light

John 3:19
(Jesus is speaking) This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

L.S.F.
Parody of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"
Performed by the Beatles and Elton John
and written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney (Acts 1:1-12)

Picture yourself on the Mount called Olivet
You're standin' with Jesus ... a marvelous time
Then while you talk He begins to rise slowly -- and gives you His final
goodbyes
Aeroplane flyers were seldomly seen down in Jerusalem then
Look for the Lord with the sun in your eyes and He's gone!
Lookee, in the sky, He's flyin'! REPEAT
Following that there appear on the mountain a couple of angels in garments
so white
"Ye men of Galilee," they say, "please tell us how come you still stare at
the sky?
Soon He'll be back, He'll appear as before where He was taken away
When He comes back, He'll descend through the clouds." Then they're gone!
Lookee, in the sky, you'll find Him! REPEAT
Scripture foretells of a day we'll be taken
"The Rapture," they call it -- it's looking like time
Suddenly trumpets declare His return while the church will arise to go with
Christ
Lookee, in the sky, we're flyin'! REPEAT

Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."


SPIRIT INSIDE
Parody of "Spirit in the Sky" performed and written by Norman Greenbaum
(Acts 1 & 2)

When He died and was raised from the dead -- taught us all 40 days then He
said
Well my friends, It's time to fly, but wait up for the Spirit to arrive
Go wait up for the Spirit from on High
That's who you're gonna know when I fly
When I fly and you may be depressed
He's gonna grow you in faith to pass the test
Prepare yourselves, but don't get so rushed -- God'll have a Friend come
teach ya
Don't you know that when I fly -- I'm gonna recommend He put the Spirit in
you guys
Gonna recommend He put the Spirit in you guys
To show you miracles, make you wise
When I fly if you wait you'll be blest
He's gonna blow through this place in just a bit LEAD
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven
and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed
to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other
tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (NIV)
Never been a preacher but ever since I got that Friend from Jesus
Don't you know I've been on fire 'cause God has filled me up with the Spirit
inside
God has filled me up with the Spirit inside
That's why I'm gonna go far and wide
Far and wide with the faith I confess
I'm gonna go every place and tell the rest -- Show 'em the way that's the
best


WALK HIS WAY
Parody of "Walk This Way" performed by Aerosmith
and written by Joe Perry and Steven Tyler (Acts 3:1-12)

Bad-footed brother, I was hopin' to recover but the doctors I'm sad to say
Said "We can't do nothin' so you're down on your luck because
You're sure to be lame to stay."
It was clear to me that what I needed was to be the kind of guy you could
never resist
Had to beg for my supper with a system I discovered
When I started as a little kid -- like this! LEAD
See my sign sayin' "Give a coin to the poor"? Could you please find
somethin' to spare?
I'd say, "Hey, give a little bit of pity to a cripple!"
When it seemed like they didn't care
But I took a big step as the Bible says with some Christians who were ready
to pray
Cause it seemed my feet was ruined but they knew what they was doin'
When the both of them appeared today
And they told me to ... walk His way (4x) They just gave me a gift -- like
this!
So John and Peter -- was a passin' by this afternoon for prayer time today
at three
I said, "Please, I'm beggin' -- put some gold in my pockets!"
When they told me, "Baby, look here at me!"
I was a-quite confused I never made it with my legs
Until their voice told me somethin' was diff
They said, "Forget those treasures 'cause we got a better favor."
And they gave me just a little gift like this LEAD
Things started tinglin' and the boys gave a pull with my feet flyin' up in
the air
Sayin', "Hey, it's a miracle!" It's really pretty clear because I didn't
have to sit in a chair
So I took a big step with my right foot and left
With those Christians who were ready to pray
Was a really big improvement 'cause they knew what they was doin'
When they told me now to walk His way -- I'm goin' to
Walk His way (8x) He just gave me a gift -- like this!

Acts 3:6
Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."



JOHN 1:1
Parody of "Fun, Fun, Fun" performed by the Beach Boys
and written by Mike Love & Brian Wilson (John 1:1, of course)

Well, it's not a very hard thing to prove so I can't understand now
Seems they forgot all about when Christ very nicely told them "I AM," now
But here's a way we know that the Lord Jesus wasn't just a good man now
You'll see that John 1:1 tells us God is really Jesus the Word
You know the verse says the Word was with God in the very first place now
(You watch what it says now, you watch what it says)
Its says that in the beginning the Word was God -- it's there in your face
now
(You look up the place now, you look up the place)
A lot of guys might not catch it yet but Jesus was the Word made flesh now
(The Bible explains now, the Bible explains)
You see that John 1:1 tells us God is really Jesus the Word LEAD
Well, you knew all along but you had to get some Bible proof now
(The proof is supplied now, the proof is supplied)
And if you look yourself you'll see that the things we talked about are all
true
(We wouldn't have lied now, we wouldn't have lied)
The truth is John 1:1 says Jesus is God and not a big guru now
(Yeshua's divine now, Yeshua's divine)
You see that John 1:1 tells us God is really Jesus the Word REPEAT

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.



NARROW WAY TO HEAVEN
Parody of "Stairway to Heaven" performed by Led Zeppelin and written by
Jimmy Page & Robert Plant (Matt. 7:13-14, 13:24 John 6:44,
14:6)

There's a way Jesus showed all us sinners must go
And He called it the narrow way to Heaven
If to get there's your goal -- with a pure heart and soul
In His Word you can get what you came for
Ooooooh and he described it right there in Matthew 7
There've been signs all along but you want to be sure
Cause the road sometimes swerves as you're reading
In the free Bible book, there in John 3:16, come find how all our faults are
forgiven
Two ways to ponder -- two ways to ponder
There's a freeway of death and it hooks to the left
And the steering and driving is easy
It is not quite as seems -- see that smoke, feel the heat
Hear the voice of the Lord who stands knockin'
Ooooooh ... it takes you under. Ooooooh ... it really takes you under
And it's His Word that's true -- if we all follow through
Then the Bible will lead us to Jesus
And the true way will dawn -- on those who've read John
Chapter 14 verse 6 and thereafter Ooooooh ...
If there's a possible dead end road -- don't be a lost man
It's best to think before you take it
Yes, there are two paths you can go by -- but there's a wrong one
But there's still time to change the road you're on
Ooooooh ... can it take you up there?
You're headed somewhere but it won't go the place you wanna go
If Christ has called and you avoid Him
The way to Heaven's very narrow, and did you know
It's very wide on the way to Hell? LEAD
Where will you wind up down the road -- a shadow land or street of gold?
There is a Way that we all know -- He shines bright light on words that show
How every man will turn to dust -- but if you let Him in your heart
The Truth will come to you at last -- and our Lord warned us where to go
And He was God -- He ought to know
And He called it the narrow way to Heaven

Matthew 7:13-14
(Jesus is speaking) "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."

(2 Tim. 3:16, Matt. 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33, 2 Peter 3:16, Rev.
22:18-19)

You can tell the world with banners all unfurled -- You just learned
Theology 101
And you can say you went to Bible school and then
The class you took said half the book was wrong
You can fill your heart with lots of question marks
You'll still tell me Jesus is your Lord
But I can tell you this -- If it was hit or miss -- I wouldn't read the
Bible anymore
Don't tear apart the sacred Word of God -- You just gotta take it as it
stands
Cause if it's all a farce with fakey shaky parts
You might as well dump it in the can
You can tell me John and Luke and Mark was wrong
You can say that's not what Christ would say
But tell me, brother, this: Did Jesus tell a fib?
He said His words would never pass away
Go read verse 3:16 in Second Timothy -- It says all Scripture comes with
God's O.K.
So you I'll tell goodbye and watch out for your pride
Cause I'll be walkin' out on you today CHORUS
Noah and the ark and Abraham and Lot -- Isaac and Rebekah and the twins
And Ishmael I forgot and Jacob and Esau -- The Bible's built upon these men

Rev. 22:18-19
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
