The Brick Testament

These are the generations of Lego.

In the beginning was Godfred Kirk Christiansen. And he begat ducks and clothes hangers and stepladders and ironing boards and stools and all manner of wooden toys in the land of Billund. And Godfred named it Lego, and it was good.

And Lego begat a plastic injection-molding machine. And the plastic injection-molding machine begat all manner of recreational folly, of Bilo-fix and of Duplo and of Terapi I, II and III.

And a great fire befell the children of Lego, the wooden toy warehouse of its fathers, and production of wooden toys was discontinued entirely. And Godfred Kirk Christiansen resigned as chairman of the board of Lego. And the children of Lego rent their garments in anguish.

But behold, the the house of Lego was granted the title “Purveyor to Her Majesty, Queen Margrethe of Denmark.” And there were fashioned great churches and cathedrals of Legos, and of Speed Slammers and of decorative foam and of Bionicles and of Clickits. And Lego begat video games about Legos of Lego Star Wars and of Lego Indiana Jones and of Lego Batman. And those were pretty good, too.

And now… now there are Bible stories illustrated with Lego.


  1. I’ve seen some of these before. They are beyond cool. Some people have way too much time on their hands.

  2. You are absolutely right. When I saw this, I was like, “Good grief. I hope this is full-time employment for someone. Because if this is just recreational activity, they don’t have nearly enough to do.”
