Jesus Needs No Defense

We choose peace in the Creation War because Jesus is not a helpless bystander in need of our defense.

  1. The featured image depicts this story.  We see Peter attacking Malchus in defense of Jesus in a painting by Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon. Our efforts to defend Jesus with aggressive power are unnecessary and do not honor Him.
  2. This theological truth might startle those accustomed to the common definition of apologetics, “a defense.” In context (1 Peter 3:15) the greek word apologia is better understood as “explanation” not “defense,” and we will cover this in another post.
