And ironically, in making that decision (towards non-violent resistence), Jesus was more dangerous to the ruling elite and to the Roman occupiers than were ...all the other rebel leaders to come.

Because while they could be crushed through military might, Jesus' way could not be crushed. In fact, Jesus would later dismantle the power and fear of the cross, the symbol of Roman execution, by inviting his followers to take it up and carry it.

From a sermon by Pastor Cindy
