Stop It… Stop Saying ‘Jesus was a Refugee’

Dear people who constantly refer to Jesus as a ‘refugee’.  Stop it.  The sojourn in Egypt as ‘proof’ that Jesus was a refugee is absurd.  Learn a bit of form criticism before you make use of stories from the Gospels for your own political agenda.  Otherwise you just look like dilettantish fools to people who actually know what the Gospels are about.

    Yes. The sojourn in Egypt is fruit of imagination of evangelist, it’s never happen.

      that’s not really the case either. rather, it is a theological declaration based on a text from the hebrew bible which ties the promise of deliverance to jesus.
