Recap: The Simpsons S 21 E 16 The Greatest Story Ever Dohed
Ned Flanders offers to take Homer and his family to Israel in hopes to save his soul, but he gets more than he bargained for when Homer gets lost in the desert and the resulting dehydration makes him believe he is the Messiah.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Ned learns this.
  • Just a Kid: Bart learns Dorit was trained in Israeli sport of Krav Maga... the hard way.
  • Groin Attack: Dorit and Lisa kicking Bart in the groin. There were FCC complaints about that part and TV Tropes' own "Dethroning Moment of Suck" page has cited this as one of the show's many, many low pointsnote 
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: "Homer Simpson, you are not...worth...saving."
  • Rage Breaking Point: Ned when he sees Homer resting on Jesus' tomb and thinking Porky Pig is buried there.
  • Truth in Television: There is such thing as Jerusalem Syndrome (deluding yourself into thinking you're the Messiah).
    Bart: Why does Dad always get the disease that's in the brochure?
