Oh Lord, We Beseech You

The Australian Bible. No, really. It's even got support from the Anglican Archbishop of Sydney.

Among other changes, the Three Wise Men are "eggheads from out East", while the Virgin Mary is a "pretty special Sheila."

Meanwhile the parable of the Good Samaritan is "the story of the good bloke."

And the Three Wise Men greet the King of the Jews with a cheery, "G'day, your majesty."
