   Plank threesome: Jezebel, Martha or Paul?
Jezebel, Paul and Martha

Day 36

Three arkmates face the spectre of the plank tonight: Paul, Jezebel and Martha.

Paul's missionary focus is clearly evident to his colleagues – Esther nominated him "because I want to support his job as an itinerant evangelist and let him go," while John decided to push off the side "because he's in a hurry to deliver his third letter to Corinth."

As for Martha and Jezebel, well, Paul nominated them because "they haven't been nominated before and it builds character. Everyone should be nominated at least once."

"You're so thoughtful like that," observed the Almighty.

When the announcement was made, Paul was philosophical: "That which does not plank us makes us stronger."
