The more things change
the more they stay the same.

Luke 23:6-12 tells of when Jesus was brought
before Herod.
Herod Antipas, that is.

Just 33 years earlier 
Herod the Great
had sought to kill Jesus.

Neither guy was effective in 
squelching this "Jesus" thing.
The first guy had a lot
of innocent baby boys killed.
The second one chickened out
and passed the buck. 

Where's the Christmas in this story?
I'm not sure but I'm drawn to the 
concept of 
"squelching" Jesus.

Our society is doing it's best to
take the Christ out of 
There, is a movement of 
"Jesus is the reason for the season."
But even that falls short.

Jesus is bigger than the season.
 He was not sent to fulfill mankind's
need for a celebration. 
Jesus was sent to save the world from it's sins.
