The Philosophers' Magazine has a Twitter account for quotes. Today it posted the following quote:
The total absence of humour from the Bible is one of the most singular things in all literature. --Alfred North Whitehead
Some people appear to disagree. For example, according to the blog post Holy Wit: Humor in the Bible – From the Daily Office – February 25, 2013, Jeremiah 1:11-12 contains a pun, but you need to be able to read the Hebrew original in order to appreciate it.
However, my question is not about whether Whitehead was right but about the source of the quote. And what was the context of that quote? Even though Whitehead's process philosophy influenced process theology, the man himself is not known as a theologian or Bible scholar.
I couldn't find the quote on Wikiquote.
