Why Jesus Was the Greatest Revolutionary, Protester

When people think of Jesus, perhaps they think of a gentle man who barely spoke above a whisper. But Hal Donaldson says that image isn't quite accurate.

Instead, Donaldson—founder and CEO of Convoy of Hope—says Jesus was the "greatest revolutionary" and the "greatest protester" of all time.

"He looked down on earth, and He was displeased by what He saw," Donaldson says. "He said, 'It doesn't have to be that way,' so He came to earth to give us life. When He came to earth, He did not boycott, He did not go on protest marches. But He disrupted the status quo, disrupted culture, through kindness. And He brought to the culture a level of kindness that I believe we need today."

Donaldson says some people are uncomfortable with applying the term "revolutionary" to Jesus because it makes them think of rebels marching in the streets. But if Christians don't see themselves as countercultural, they will never truly walk in Jesus' footsteps.

For that reason, Donaldson and his ministry reach out with boldness to help feed over 200,000 kids a day and put the Word of God in as many hands as possible.

"It's really about mobilizing and resourcing the church to make a lasting difference in the world," he says.
