The following website tries to guess what Jesus would have driven if He lived
NOW. Unfortunately, the creators guessed only cars and like vehicles.
I personally feel there is good evidence that their guesses are WAY off.There is only one vehicle Jesus would drive and that is a recumbent bicycle! Why?
"Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral
man sins against his own body.
19 Or (34) do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?
20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. (1 cor 6:18ff)
Rationale is this: cars of any kind are injurious to the environment (produce pollution) and also use up natural resources such as oil. Also, cars are often cited as the number one reason that while obesity runs at 40 percent in the United States, it is only 5 percent in Europe - few Europeans have cars and the average European takes 10,000 steps a day while the average American takes fewer than 1000 steps a day. In the 1996 Surgeon General's Report, it was stated that NOT EXERCISING regularly was AS DANGEROUS as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.
So, a recumbent bicycle preserves and keeps the body healthy while also keeping the environment healthier! Definitely in line with 1 Cor 6:19!

In Jesus' time there were vehicles, chariots, wagons etc. And of course, horses and donkeys. But notice Jesus WALKED everyway. Another sign that were he to have available an efficient and comfortable invention like the recumbent bicycle, which is the similar to running but with no impact and affords the owner to get places in a convenient manner, of course, He would have chosen this ultra vehicle - the recumbent bicycle.
You might have said He chose to walk to be with the people and that is of course, another wonderful thing about a bicycle. Since a bicycle costs a fraction of what an expensive pollution expelling, noisy car costs, a bicycle would afforded Him the privilege of being WITH the people while getting to his destinations quicker. In fact, most towns have a bicycle police force because they say the people are more prone to talk with the police officers on bikes and they can actually catch crooks more efficiently also!
On a recumbent bicycle, Jesus would have been WITH the people, preserved his body (until man decided to end His Life) and the environment (again preserving not only His Body but those around him... riding a bicycle instead of taking your car is also the nicest thing you can do for your neighbors!).
