[klondike mary] Rated PG

He was a follower, and he paid for it.
But you might say he had the last laugh after all.

(Yes, this is a Biblical puzzle.)

Follower: of a person? Deity? Command? A participant in something? Paid: gave money? Suffered? Died? Last laugh: actual laugh? Someone causing him problems having their own problems in turn?

Did he follow a philosophy? Belief system? Laws? Did he literally walk/move behind something?

Did whoever/whatever he followed "pay for it" as well? If so, in the same way? Did a person or people cause him to "pay for it"? Was there some kind of revenge?

Did he have the last laugh because of something that happened after he died? Was he vindicated? Celebrated in some way? Did something bad happen to people who opposed him?

Follower of Jesus? Of another Biblical character? Of Brian?

Was he one of the disciples? Does he have a holiday named after him?

Follower of Jesus?Yes, although maybe not at the time of this incident. Of another Biblical character? Of Brian?

Was he one of the disciples? Yes, he was a disciple, though not an apostle - that is, not one of the 12..Does he have a holiday named after him?There are a number of things named after him, but I am not aware of any holidays.

Science relevant? Science denial? No to both.Was he in the bible?Yes. Fair warning: 'He' is well-known, but the incident in this puzzle is not.

A Biblical character, a disciple, known for his writings... hmm.
Does he appear (prominently?) in the book of Acts?

Luke? (Not sure he meets the qualification of being less known than Paul though.) Barnabas?

Did he have the last laugh because of something that happened after he died? Yope/yessish Did he get the last laugh as a result of something that happened after his death combined with something that happened during it? Was something previously thought about him proven wrong? Is the manner of his death relevant? Did the vindication occur within a century of his death? A millennia? Considering he maybe wasn't a disciple at the time of this incident, did he get the last laugh through his conversion somehow?

Would it be fruitful to figure out how he suffered? If so, through physical pain? Imprisonment? Was he a disciple when he endured this suffering? After? Before? Had he renounced his faith at some point?

I was never good with Biblical names and trivia even when I was a Christian. This is proving to be rather difficult.

Luke? (Not sure he meets the qualification of being less known than Paul though.)Not Luke, but you are very WARM. Barnabas? Cooler.

Did he have the last laugh because of something that happened after he died? Yope/yessish Did he get the last laugh as a result of something that happened after his death combined with something that happened during it? Was something previously thought about him proven wrong? Is the manner of his death relevant?The person who is the subject of this puzzle? No. Did the vindication occur within a century of his death? A millennia? Within a few days, DOYD of 'vindicated.Considering he maybe wasn't a disciple at the time of this incident, did he get the last laugh through his conversion somehow? Uknown. He may have been a disciple, but never was one of the Twelve Apostles.

Would it be fruitful to figure out how he suffered? If so, through physical pain? Imprisonment?In this puzzle, mostly embarassment. Was he a disciple when he endured this suffering? After? Before? Unknown. Had he renounced his faith at some point? AFAIK, no.

Guessing this is the incident recounted in Mark 14:51-52 (the young man is assumed by most scholars to be Mark himself)?
"A young man, wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus. When they seized him, he fled naked, leaving his garment behind."

Good guess!
****************SPOILER*****************************
Scholars think this must have been Mark himself, because nobody else mentions the incident, nobody else would think it important, and nobody else would know that it was a fine linen garment (i.e. expensive) and still be miffed about it years later, not to say embarrassed!
