“No more of this!” Jesus’ Condemnation of Violence and the War
[Juba, South Sudan, TCT] When Jesus was teaching in Jerusalem, the political and religious leaders there were not happy with him. They were jealous of his popularity and they feared his message of repentance. Soon they made a plan to arrest him and accuse him falsely. In the nighttime they sent their bodyguards and militia, armed with swords and clubs (Mark 14:43).
