Opening Image: Jesus is introduced. He’s back because he decides to take another vacation.
Theme Stated: Satan’s constant opposition to everything Jesus does is introduced on page 3.
Set-Up: Jesus and Heather eat at the Flying J, where Jesus’ disenchantment with religion is exposed.
Catalyst: Arriving in Butte, Montana, Jesus delivers the garlic he is hauling in his Peterbilt to a grocery store owned and operated by a religious group known as Springers (followers of the deceased Curtis Howe Springer of Zyzzx fame). Springers are Merovingians. Heather is a Springer. Image courtesy en.wikipedia.org
Debate: The Springers identify Jesus as a preacher just waiting to happen. The Springers attempt to persuade Jesus to become a radio/TV evangelist for Springerism.
Break in Two: Jesus does not want to get “involved in the preaching thing again.” But he does. The Springer Church becomes The Last Chance Church of the Last Days.
B Story: the relationship between Jesus and Heather takes off.
Fun and Games: Jesus/Henry becomes superstar TV evangelist. The Last Chance Church goes international, surpassing every other religion in adherents.
Midpoint: Satan is pissed. He believes Jesus/Henry is trying to pull a fast one: a premature Second Advent, along with the Millennium, where Jesus gets to rule the world. Satan marshals an opposition religion.
