A golden lorry is lowered from the skies and people crowd the streets to see what’s happening. The wise, the skeptical, the poor, the rich, the scientists, the child, they all have a spot on reaction to the lorry, and the message that Jesus has been killed, and that there’s a vacancy for the post of Jesus Christ. Add a karate-priest, a traditional priest and the police and you’re in for it.

A very original, and clever, though at times confusing short story.
