Jesus the Revolutionary


Today’s guest post is written by Michael L. Brown, author of Revolution: Jesus’ Call to Change the World and Revolution in the Church: Challenging the Religious System with a Call for Radical Change.

“We socialists would have nothing to do if you Christians had continued the revolution begun by Jesus.” These words were spoken by a leading socialist in the 1920s, yet more than 90 years later, they remain foreign to many Christian ears. What “revolution” did Jesus begin? And was Jesus in any sense a “revolutionary”?

The answer is that Jesus came into our world to launch God’s revolution—a kingdom revolution, a revolution of the Spirit, a worldchanging movement that would overcome evil with good and hatred with love, and Jesus himself was the most radical revolutionary leader who ever lived.

Jesus called for revolutionary commitment

All too often, however, we look at Jesus as the founder of a lovely home and garden religion,” called Christianity, a harmless spiritual leader who left behind some lovely platitudes and inspirational thoughts, a man whose memory we celebrate at the annual Easter egg hunt.

But that is hardly the Jesus of the New Testament. His message was a threat to the religious establishment. He called for dramatic, sweeping—yes, revolutionary—change. He taught his followers to pray radical prayers like, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”—meaning, the displacement of the corrupt kingdoms of this world by the perfect kingdom of God. He called his disciples to revolutionary commitment, urging them to leave everything and follow him, and in his platform message, he promised freedom to the captives (Luke 4:18–21).

That is the language of a revolution, and that is the language we must recover today, as our nation teetertotters on the verge of moral and social (not to mention economic) collapse. We need a Jesus-based cultural revolution that will recover the fear of God, the respect of honor, the dignity of family, and the beauty of morality.

Join the revolution

That is why I wrote Revolution: Jesus’ Call to Change the World, a life-changing book filled with challenging examples from saints and martyrs of the past.

However, before there can be a revolution in this society, there must first be a revolution in the Church, since the world has been changing the Church of America more than the Church of America has been changing the world. As Dr. Martin Luther King warned decades ago, “If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”

That is why I wrote Revolution in the Church: Challenging the Religious System with a Call for Radical Change—to examine our present methods of leadership and ministry against the biblical grid. For those bold enough to take the challenge, the rewards will outweigh the difficulties.

There is reason for great hope. As expressed by the late Vernon Grounds, former chancellor of Denver Theological Seminary, “A Christian who . . . becomes a revolutionary will serve as a revolutionary catalyst in the Church; and by the multiplication of revolutionized Christians, the Church will become a revolutionary catalyst in society; and if society is sufficiently revolutionized, a revolution of violence will no more be needed than a windmill in a world of atomic energy.”

The Trials of This Earth Shall Pass

Isaiah 33

“This too shall pass” a phrase commonly heard by those going through periods of mourning or struggle. When viewed in an earthly sense, it can be difficult to believe, since we know struggles often pass only to bring forth different struggles. This life is never free of suffering. Instead, we move through life and its trials, attempting to make it through by leaning on God, and doing our best to glorify him in the process.

Throughout Isaiah 33, a beautiful reminder is painted. A glorious image of the future, paired with the mournful present—a reminder that though we will struggle tremendously throughout this life, we will someday rejoice in the presence of God’s glory.

Rejoicing through forgiveness

Not only will we live in the most perfect place, in the presence of God; we’ll be completely forgiven of our past (Isaiah 33:24). We will be completely free to rejoice and enjoy life in God’s presence, free of guilt and regret. And this all began on the cross with Jesus.

Because of Jesus’ death on the cross, we are able to look forward to one day living in total happiness. We are able push onward because the mourning and sadness that this world holds for us are only temporary. We know that this won’t last forever, so we are able to push forward each day, looking forward to the day when we meet our father and live in the glorious home he has prepared for us.

Looking forward to heaven

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”—Colossians 3:1–4

If it were not for Jesus coming to die, death would be something to dread—a terrible ending to a difficult life. However, we have been given a gift leading to an even more beautiful beginning. Because of God’s grace and forgiveness, we are able to look onward to the place where the Lord in majesty will be for us (Isaiah 33:21).

Easter is an amazing reminder of the fact that “this too shall pass.” Though we go through dark times, times of mourning, loss, and disappointment, we get to look forward to living forever as though we are blameless and perfect, just as we appear because of what Jesus endured for our sake.

Redeemed through His Blood—Ephesians 1:7

Ephesians 1.7

“Forgiveness costs us nothing. All our costly obedience is the fruit, not the root, of being forgiven. That’s why we call it grace. But it cost Jesus his life. That is why we call it just. Oh, how precious is the news that God does not hold our sins against us! And how beautiful is Christ, whose blood made it right for God to do this.”
—John Piper, 50 Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die

All sin is serious, because even in its simplest forms, sin attempts to work against God

His glory is hindered when we disregard or disobey him, and this is why Christ suffered and died for us. Our sins couldn’t be justified through simply being forgiven; instead, someone had to repay our debts.

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses”
—Ephesians 1:7

Jesus has shown his love for us both through sending his son to die for us and through forgiving the great amount of sin and unworthiness that previously separated us from God. When we pair the depth of our sins with the horrific death Jesus endured for such a seemingly unworthy cause, his love for us becomes even more apparent than before.

We can take Jesus’ death on the cross personally

The great news about the love displayed through Jesus’ death is that we can take it personally. Those who were alive to witness were amazed by his personal sacrifice, saying things such as “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).

We can rest in the fact that he died for each of us individually. This Easter, remember that not only did he die for us; he died for you specifically.

We’ve received the greatest gift possible

In order to bring glory to God and forgiveness to his people, Jesus paid the highest price possible. And because of this, we receive the greatest gift we could ask for—to be free from our imperfections, and to live forever in the presence of God’s glory.

“Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory.”
—John 17:24

Jesus’ death secured a place for us, and the best is yet to come.

How to Memorize Scripture with Logos

When Jesus was asked, “Which commandment is the most important of all?,” he answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:28–30).

One of God’s deepest desires is that we love him, but how can we continually grow in our love for God if we don’t know his Word? If our knowledge of God is shallow, how can our love be deep? His greatest command is for us to love him with all our heart, soul, strength and mind—and memorizing Scripture is a great way to keep our love for God and his Word at the forefront of our minds.

Many of us want to be memorizing Scripture, but can’t seem to find the time. And even when we do find time, we aren’t quite sure where or how to begin.

Logos 5 makes memorizing Scripture easier than ever.

How Knox’s Degrees Fit Your Busy Life

Scott_LindseyToday’s guest post is by Scott Lindsey, our ministry relations director here at Logos.

To say my life is “crazy busy” is an understatement. I’ve been married to the love of my life for 21 years. I have five amazing children. My wife and I home school. And I travel. When I say “travel,” I mean over 100,000 miles per year. They know me at many major airports. I have a “United Airlines” tattoo. (Ok, maybe not.)

In 2012, Logos and Knox Theological Seminary created a game-changing partnership. A partnership combining the best in theological resources and technology with a world-class faculty and seminary. When I first heard about the partnership, I thought, “Where have you been all my life?” I’ve always wanted to go to seminary, but moving my family, quitting Logos, and going back to school fulltime is not an option. But the Logos/Knox program is a very viable option!

Three weeks ago, I started my seminary journey—I enrolled in the MABTS program at Knox. It’s exceeded my expectations on many levels:

  1. The classroom comes to you. Technology allows Knox to bring the lectures to your computer screen with world-class instructors like Drs. Bruce Waltke, Warren Gage, John Frame, Gerald Bray, Samuel Lamerson, and others. I’ve even watched lectures on my iPhone while sipping coffee at my favorite coffee shop.
  2. Portfolio! Imagine a $78,000 theological library at your fingertips. As I mentioned, I’m a big fan of Logos, but as a student, I’m learning much more about this amazing tool. And when I graduate, the library will be mine forever. I did my MBA through distance education, and graduated with about 20 books. This time, I’ll graduate with over 2,500 books for a lifetime of learning.
  3. Learning at my own pace. Yes, I have lots of assignment deadlines now, but I get to decide when to do the course lectures, readings, and other materials. I can watch lectures at 31,000 feet, finish course readings on my iPad in bed, or do my writing assignments during my lunch break with my laptop. When I think about all the time I’ve wasted on trivial things like TV, surfing the web, and posting what I eat to Facebook, I realize I would rather use that time to learn more about my God and my faith.

So, if you heard about the Knox/Logos partnership and thought to yourself, “I would love to do that, but my life is just too crazy!”—believe me, you can do it! And you’ll be glad you did.

You’ll deepen your love for the Gospel and get in-depth training for effective ministry with Knox’s online MABTS. To learn more or apply now, call 1-800-210-6466 or visit
