Skeptics Series | Even Jesus Resisted the Government

March 16, 2022

It's popular today to think of Jesus as a political activist that came to earth to fight for peoples' rights, especially minorities. In that sense, Jesus takes on the persona of someone who resists those in authority. But when one actually looks at Jesus in the Bible, they see a completely different person. Jesus continually reaffirmed the 4th commandment from the Old Testament, namely that God expects people to obey and respect authorities. Pastors Mark and Neal take us through several examples in the Bible about Jesus respecting authorities and how the modern idea of Jesus as an activist is a myth.
