The passage for today is Mark 1:1-11 regarding the Triumphal Entry which is called Palm Sunday by some.
Let us consider the meaning of subversive. It is an attempt to overthrow a system of power or authority, often by people working secretly from within.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a subversion of our culture.
The people wanted a subversion of the status quo. They were laying palms looking for Him to take power.
The elite wanted a subversion of the national power (Rome).
The way that Jesus is subversive in the world is to give His life for it.
Death and violence do not get the last word.
