Jesus’ followers spoke against injustice. Clear your throat, Oklahoma.


Rev. Lori Allen Walke

Editor’s note: As part of our commitment to foster civil conversations in Viewpoints, we’re inviting faith leaders to submit edited versions of their homilies that transcend religion, with messages that can appeal to people of all faith traditions. 

Two thousand years ago, there were a couple of parades in Jerusalem. As theologians Dominic Crossan and Marcus Borg describe, “From the east, Jesus rode a donkey down from the Mount of Olives, cheered by his followers … From the west, Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor . . . entered Jerusalem at the head of a column of imperial cavalry and soldiers.” Jesus’ procession proclaimed the kingdom of God and Pilate’s proclaimed the power of empire, a conflict central to the story of Jesus and his followers.
