Worst Friends Forever (Luke 23:8-16)
May 24, 2021 Season 8 Episode 42

Persecution is puzzling. Why do people hate Christ and Christians so much? If there’s one thing our divided world is united on, it’s hatred of Jesus and his followers. Why? Why do they hate us so much? Far more than any other religion, far more even than the worst criminals. Non-Christians, both religious and secular, differ on a thousand points, but agree on one point: we hate Christ and Christians. “But why?” If we could figure it out, it would be somewhat easier to bear. If we could see some reason for their persecution, we would have a reason for our suffering. Why do people hate Christ and Christians so much? 

In Luke 23:8-16, we see two enemies become friends in their persecution of Christ. Let’s see if we can find some clues to their hellish unity.
