What Kind Of Car Would Jesus Drive?

I had a conversation with a couple of people the other day.  Somehow it led to this question.  What kind of car would Jesus drive if He was here today?  Obviously, we cannot answer this with total certainty.


As I remember things, Jesus walked everywhere.  The only time I recall him riding anything was a donkey into Jerusalem in the week leading up to His crucifixion.  He walked alone.  He walked with others.  For goodness sake, He even walked across the water.  Jesus was a walker.  That might not be so practical in today’s world, especially here in the United States.

But what kind of car would He drive?


Would He even drive a car?  Perhaps He would ride a bicycle like my friend, Bill the Cycleguy.  I feel pretty comfortable saying that Jesus would be in perfect physical shape.  Cycling would help Him stay in good physical condition and get Him where He wanted to go fairly efficiently.  However, there would be some trips He might want to take that it just wouldn’t work for.

Running would be worse.  His cardio would be great.  He just couldn’t get where He wanted to go fast enough.  Unless, of course, He could run faster than the speed of light like the Flash.


I’m pretty sure that Jesus would not drive a luxury car.  That wouldn’t fit His lifestyle, not His mission.  It would be awfully pretentious to work among those who have nothing while driving a, well you insert the brand of car that would not fit.


Maybe when it comes down to it, we shouldn’t focus on what kind of car that Jesus would drive.  Instead, when we think of cars, we should be more concerned with the kind of car we should drive.

Does it make it hard for us to live within our means?

Would there be a better use of the money the Lord has allowed us to make?

Does it create a barrier between us and others?

What kind of car do you think Jesus would drive?

    I’m not partial or anything but I think jesus would use a bicycle. Unfortunately, not a road bike but more of a hybrid or mountain bike (absence of good roads a problem). To your question: I don’t believe it would be a luxury car by any stretch. Too ostentatious. Too much like the Pharisees.

    I’m sure Jesus was a Honda fan, after all we know the disciples were all in one “Accord.”
    Acts 2:1 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.”
