Kevin Makins - The Things That Make For Peace: Violence

Luke 4

For the season of Lent, we are going to be looking at the peace teachings of Jesus.

It is a sad irony that “the things that make for peace” rarely result in peace right away. We could all think of times when a peaceful act has brought about an aggressive reaction - when Jesus brought a word of peace; he often received violence. 

How did Jesus respond to acts of violence? How should we?
