Episode 19: Turning the Other Cheek

 The Manifesto – Life, Politics, and Reality in the Kingdom of God

In today’s episode, we examine the famous passage from the Manifesto in which Jesus talks about turning the other cheek. We then travel through different interpretations of this passage, from Leo Tolstoy to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., culminating in a look at what Jesus is really saying here.

What we traditionally refer to as the “Sermon on the Mount” was actually a revolutionary manifesto for a new way of life in the Kingdom of God. In today’s unsettling and polarized age, the teachings of this Kingdom Manifesto are as relevant and vital as ever. In this multi-part series, JB Shreve and Faithful Considerations takes a deep dive into the Manifesto: Life, Politics, and Reality in the Kingdom of God.

Here is a link to the book by Leo Tolstoy I talked about in this episode: The Kingdom of God Is Within You
