Have you tweeted your 140 character résumé of the Bible?

Rather surprisingly one of my colleagues who claims only to have spoken once on a mobile phone today sent me his 140 character version of the Bible. As Theodore Gill is a brilliant editor and theologian (and preacher) it was a rather good good attempt, but it was 23 character too long - yes in twitter the gaps count - remember God of the gaps folks.
Here's his slightly over twitter attempt - I posted an edited version to my twitter feed.

In the beginning God created, then humans got involved & splat. People, slavery, exodus, promise. Kings, prophets, occasional wisdom. Jesus, Spirit, boffo finale.

So what is your 140 character version of the Bible - the Guardian would love to hear from you ...
