The Seven Mountains Messiah

This is the Messiah they wanted … a strong, seditious political saviour who would save them from Caesar and the ANC – Jesus Barabbas. A mixture of Che Guevara and Mandela and perhaps Martin Luther King, a sort of religious and political combo saviour.

“At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Jesus Barabbas. So after they had gathered, Pilate said to them, ‘Whom do you want me to release for you, Jesus Barabbas or Jesus who is called the Messiah?’”

Matthew 27:16-17 (NRSV)

Which Jesus do you choose?
