Essay:Trumpian Gospel

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Trumpian Gospel is the Gospel of Mark, which is anti-Establishment in several ways, criticizing Rome and even implicitly criticizing the Apostles. The Gospel of Mark bluntly expresses conservative populism not embraced by other Gospels, similar to how Donald Trump does likewise in the political realm.

For example, only the Gospel of Mark quotes Jesus for his fundamentally populist statement that:

The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

As another example, only the Gospel of Mark includes the parable of the sowing of the seed, with its lesson that the sower does not know how the seeds bear fruit, which again is anti-authoritarian.[1] Over the years many attempts to place the Gospel of Mark within the sphere of the Apostles and early church leaders do not withstand scrutiny.
