Is There A Biblical Case For Voluntary Human Shields? - Faithwise Review of the Week

  • Is There A Biblical Case For Voluntary Human Shields? by Correspondent Beverly Darling, Mon 27 Nov 2006
    Extract: Perhaps the greatest example of a voluntary human shield was Jesus and his revolutionary act of civilly disobeying the violent political and religious structures of the Roman Empire, and nonviolently attacking Rome’s executive powers by being executed (no pun intended) on the cross.

Unfortunately, they are still used today.
