About

Man Reading the Bible and Smoking a Blunt is a reaction image and meme format used in a series of image macros depicting a black-and-white image of a Black man reading the Bible while smoking a blunt. The image was first used as a meme alongside the caption "Sometimes you have to be high to understand the most-high" in 2016 and saw a boost in popularity starting in 2023. The meme is largely used to describe the feeling of focusing hard on something.

Origin

On January 31st, 2016, Redditor u/imjayybro posted an image macro to the subreddit /r/BlackPeopleTwitter[1] in which the caption "sometimes you have to be high to understand the most-high" is shown above an image of a Black man reading the Bible while smoking a blunt, garnering over 460 upvotes in eight years (shown below). This is the earliest known meme to use the image, although it may have been taken from a now-deleted tweet.
