Jesus Lived in a Police State [Music Video]

Just as police states have arisen throughout history, there have also been individuals or groups of individuals who have risen up to challenge the injustices of their age. Jesus Christ, an itinerant preacher and revolutionary activist, was one such activist who lived and died in a police state—namely, the Roman Empire. Yet for all the religious accolades poured out upon Christ, little is said about the harsh realities of the world in which he lived and its similarities to modern-day America, and yet they are striking. Set against the backdrop of police brutality and militarization occurring in America today, “Jesus Lived in a Police State” is John Whitehead’s musical tribute to a revolutionary giant who forged a path of nonviolence for all to follow.
