“As we approach Easter…”

Not every day perhaps, but today, Mutinous Monday, let’s remember this aspect of Jesus’s life and character:

He entered into a place of worship and caused carnage.

Coins-clattering-doves-flapping-and-crapping-religious-hucksters-raging carnage.

He physically forced people from a room like a security guard.  Turned over cash registers like an anarchist.  Prevented people coming through like a bouncer unconcerned about it all kicking off.

This was no benign clergyman musing out loud, “As we approach Easter…”

This was a working class northerner in his early 30’s manhandling people.

We don’t approach Easter.

Easter squares up to us.
