Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.

Tomorrow Steve Jobs gives his keynote presentation at the Macworld Expo. If, as is often suggested, the love of Apple goes beyond mere fandom and reaches the status of a cult: well, this is our Christmas. I guess on that analogy, the World Wide Developer’s Conference must be Easter—closer to the true mysteries of the faith but a little less crowd-pleasing.

I can’t help thinking that if Christ took a lead from Steve Jobs, turning up a couple of times a year and putting on a bit of a show in front of the faithful, he might win back a few sceptics like me. I’m not asking for too much: a miracle, a couple of parables, some topical material. Maybe something ineffable.
