In our chronological tour through the Bible, we come now to the coming of the Messiah.
The Advent of Jesus the Christ (Christ means "anointed King" -- an office, not a surname) was resisted by both church and State. Both the Roman civil rulers and the Jewish religious leaders knew their power was threatened by a righteous Servant-King. The powers plotted against Him from womb to tomb.
Empires and false religions have always been at war with Patriarchy and the Seed of Abraham, which is the Messiah.
