“We should call this Protest Week because it begins with the Galilean Non-violence Movement processing joyously into Jerusalem calling on Jesus to save them as the true Son of David.
Then Jesus prophetically clearing the Temple in proleptic action of its destruction.
Then negotiating with his opponents over ending the unholy alliance between mercantile religion and the occupying power.
Their buying off a leader to betray him, and then privately torturing him before publicly lynching him.
But God raises the Protester and the Protest from the dead.
And we’re still gathering. Wonder what you will do with the Protest that Does Not Stay Dead?”
