I am looking for anywhere in the Scriptures where Jesus had a sense of humor - did he laugh?


I know of no place in the Bible where Jesus is recorded as laughing, however, I would be surprise if He didn't, for He created laughter. Surely one could guess that He and His disciples could have found many things to laugh over. I know that Jesus held little children (babies), and who can be around a baby or little child without laughing. However, the Bible does not record Jesus laughing. It clearly records that "Jesus wept" but it never says "Jesus laughed."

I think of the fact that Jesus is the Creator, and look at some of the most adorable animals He created. He created puppies and programmed them to act silly, surely our Creator has a beautiful and pure sense of humor.
