Reza Aslan: Jesus No Pacifist


Here's an interesting clip in which Reza Aslan discusses Jesus and notes that he was not a pacifist like Martin Luther King or Gandhi because no one could upset a major empire like Rome with a sit-in.

Aslan, the author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus, says that Jesus was probably more like Malcolm X.

I saw this on Fusion, which also has a good summary of the interview by Jessica Roy.
