Jesus’ message of freedom is the greatest single contribution to human rights in history. He told them: 'I want you to go home and put down your weapons. If there was any one group of people that Jesus couldn't stand, it was hypocrites!

According to René Girard, a historical anthropologist of religion, “The Gospel Revelation is the definitive formulation of a truth already partially disclosed in the Old Testament….the truth that God himself accepts the role of the victim…so that he can save us all….by revealing how violent contagion [scapegoating] poisons communities.” See René Girard, I See Satan Fall Like Lightening (Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2002), 130-1. 42 Volf, 291-2. 43 Volf, 294.

At the very least, it should not be assumed a priori that this is not so, and one should be wary of attempts to speak of 'the biblical view of sex' which do not include a careful and thorough investigation of a wide range of texts. At this point, the attraction for jus post bellum thinkers is to return to the initial justice of the war. Kaiser notes that the gospel may also be called a smell of death, but then in a non sequitur he concludes from this, “Thus it is not the Ten Commandments per se that are a ministration of death” (ibid.). 25 The logic of such statements is false for the Sabbath command, and the logic is therefore false.
