John Lennon once said: "The Beatles are bigger than Jesus". Do you agree with him?

    John meant "bigger" as meaning only more talked about, perhaps. John was fond of saying things that trigger people, but then explaining that he didn't mean it the way it sounds. If anything, that was a criticism of people for getting more excited about the Beatles than about something really more deserving, such as religion.

    He was being sarcastic, but most people took it personal like his killer/fan Mark David Chapman.

    No. He didn't mean it. He was young, he made it sarcastically, to get attention - and it appears it is still working.

      B.S. There are huge swaths of the world that don't "do" Jesus at all. He was entirely right then, & still is.

    I've heard of Jesus and know who Jesus is. And through Jesus John Lennon was accepted and allowed to live in America. Now who are John Lennon. Beatles are little bugs that usually are ignored and can be stepped on.

    Was John Lennon drunk or high when he made his obnoxious claim?

    Oh and btw. I slept with the prettiest girl there before John Lemon even got a look

      You're a dumb a$$ of extraordinary magnitude. The statement was made in disgust. He found it odd that so many people idolised a rock band while pretending to be "Christian". He disliked the hypocrisy that showed.

    there is ZERO evidence that jesus ever existed so the beatles were bigger , it isn't exactly a secret and is easily checked so it's amazing that so many people still think he did
