|St. John the Baptizer by Bartolome Estaban Murillo|
Boy 1: I have a question - why is Jesus touching his nipples?
*Class erupts with noise*
Boy 2: You're saying "nipples" in Religious Ed?!?!
*Lots of chatter*
Me: We're allowed to use anatomically correct words. Back to the question - is Jesus really touching his nipples in this image?
Girl: No! He's just holding his arms.
Boy 1: Well, why is he standing like that?
Boy 2: He's about to get water poured over his head!
Boy 1: Oh, so he's cold? Maybe...that just looks weird.
Boy 1: Did doves always follow Jesus around and fly around his head?
Me: I really don't know; you'll have to ask him about that in Heaven.
