There is a connection between Bernie Sanders and Jesus. From my Facebook today.
Well he halfway right. The NT Jesus certainly portayed in this way. Trouble is it is all fiction.
1st Century Jews certainly resented their financial plight. They had to pay taxes to Rome and pay a Temple tax as well as go to Jerusalem as a pilgrimage on passover to sacrifice at the Temple. This inlvolved buying sacrficial animals from approved vendors. You also had to pay fot your sacrifice in Temple money, not every day money .So you had "money exchangers" not "money lenders" in the Temple...an often misunderstood point.
2 points to make here;
And if Bernie Had been elected, congress would have crucified him....he would have wound up having his great ideas made to look like failures. I think congress needs to evolve before our presidency can support a Bernie Sanders...wonder who is judas was....the DNC?...hehe
