Jesus Politics is a series of teachings and reflections from Kurt Willems leading up to the election. Each teaching is followed up by a conversation between Kurt and Tony Scarcello. This series explores topics such as: allegiance, nationalism, kingdom of God, dominion and stewardship, Revelation and ‘end times,’ citizenship, creation care, war, and much more.

In this episode, Kurt and Tony explore Jesus’ temptation in the desert to have the power of the kingdoms of this world and Judas’ betrayal from God’s kingdom to those kingdoms. How did Jesus respond? As a servant-King. He models ‘power under’ rather than the power of the sword. The church in the USA often misses the mark in this regard. Judas betrays Jesus just like we betray his call to engage in politics in a radically different way.
