Who Demolished the Walls of Jericho?

This is another old joke :D

A senior pastor wanted to test the Bible knowledge of the Sunday school kids. He came to their class and asked a question, “Morning, my dear kids. Does anyone know who demolished the walls of Jericho?”. Some of the kids scratched their heads, some looked confused, some looked at each other and some gave blank stare at him. He asked them again, “Who demolished the walls of Jericho? Anyone knows?” After 10 minutes of silence, one kid answered him, “Sorry, Pastor, we do not know.”

Wondering why they did not know, the senior pastor gathered all the Sunday school teachers and posed the same question. “Brothers and sisters, does anyone know who demolished the wall of Jericho?” He then saw the same reaction: some teachers scratched their heads, some looked at each other, some seemed stunned, some gave him blank stare. “So how?” he asked again. After 10 minutes of silence, one teacher raised her hand and said, “Pastor, why not we call the police to find out who demolished the walls of Jericho?”

Agitated, he called all the junior pastors and conducted an emergency general meeting. “Brothers and sisters, I asked a question to Sunday school kids and teachers and they could not answer me.” he announced. “What is the question?” One junior pastor asked. “Does anyone know who demolished the walls of Jericho?” he posed the question. Again, some junior pastors scratched head, some looked at each other and some gave him a blank stare. After 10 minutes of silence, one junior pastor proposed, “Dear Senior Pastor, is it ok if you give us 30 minutes to discuss the question among ourselves?” “Fine. I will come back in 30 minutes.” the senior pastor agreed.

After 30 minutes, the senior pastor came back to the meeting. “So, does anyone know who demolished the wall of Jericho?” One representative of the junior pastors raised his hand and said, “Dear Senior Pastor, we’re very sorry to hear the walls of Jericho was demolished. Why not we conduct a fundraising campaign to finance the rebuilding of the walls of Jericho?”
