Exactly. Finally the body of christ can be used to solve world hunger.

Especially if you got another cloned Jesus to miraculously divide up the body.

That might in fact be more efficient than just simply cloning him a million times.
Good thinking.

Let's assume this is 100% possible.

What would happen if the "real" Jesus, who had resurrected, saw his clone?

This would open up such a tremendous can of theological issues I am not sure it would be worth it. I would rather not have people creating by accident the "anti-jesus" in some weird science-fiction version of Jesus Christ Super Star.

He would call him or her "my child".
Remember, Eve was a clone of Adam. So it is not like it is new.

Catgirl Jesus says "Nyao."

Besides, that's basically just Catholicism.

The Christian Crazies (Guys who take the Bible too literally) will go insane. Also if a Jesus is elected president the the crazies will start thinking they can do whatever.

Wait Can Jesus become president?

Doesn't Jesus like have two natures, one human and one divine? So wouldn't cloning him only be cloning the human side leaving the god part out of it?
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

Or even better yet, a Jesus for everyone. Think of it :Your Own Personal Jesus *cue good Depeche Mode song*

In the end, the second coming is very important for various faiths. Why not help it a hand and force the issue :)

This is almost quite literally the source of the first Christian schisms, so the answer is maybe? Depends on your interpretation.

Aren't the schisms about just how those two natures are mixed and how divisible or indivisible they are to an observer? Presumably if humans were to take a piece of Jesus and recreate it without any input from god those discussions wouldn't apply on account of the fact that we'd be creating an imperfect copy devoid of the bit god put in.
