Today’s passage Matthew 10:26-42 starts: “So do not be afraid of people. Whatever is now covered up will be uncovered, and every secret will be made known.”
Information about the upcoming birth of the Messiah have leaked. Commenter Kim quotes Karl Barth’s stance against all secret policies and secret diplomacy. Jesus is God’s own WikiLeaks and the one truth that leaks over and over again is: There is no reason to be afraid!
Back in June 2008 I preached about the evangelical aspect of this passage under the title “Spread the Love”.
