JESUS GOT SWAG
Words like “swag” seem to be everywhere these days. Even banks are running ads dripping with faux urban culture. Shahak Shapira has produced an ironic new translation of the Bible, a new version of the Scriptures for street-savvy young people. “At the beginning God made 1 earth and 1 heaven. And some bling called light.” Published on his Facebook page, Shapira’s mini-dialogues between himself and his “boy”, Jesus, have been a hit with his myriad fans and followers.
