The Jihadist and the Lamb – v4

God’s chosen people, their leaders, the people
crying before the power of Roman
for Christ’s crucifixion
at the seat of the oppressor
choosing to free the man
a Jihadist of the people
ready for confrontation
sacrificing the Lamb on the altar

The threat to authority
Al Qaeda of that day
Caesar freeing a terrorist
on that fateful day

The king of the Jews to the slaughter
the long awaited Messiah
God’s chosen people
making him the sacrifice

The anarchist, murderer
over the Savior, Messiah,
the Jihadi to the faithful
freed by the tyrant
chaos on the table
storm clouds building
for the Lamb of God surrender
sent to the cross for slaughter
