Monday of Holy Week — “Fight Like Jesus” review part 3

As we move into Monday of Holy Week, Porterfield looks at one of the most controversial aspects of Monday of Holy Week — the whip that Jesus fashioned and used as he cleansed the Temple of the animals and money changers. The simple argument is this — Jesus made a whip and used it, clearly he was fine with using violence as a means to an end. A dive into Scripture helps us to see that this is not the case and that too often we read into Scripture what isn’t there.
