Making heads or tails of the Slaughter of the Innocents is not an easy task. I suppose all there is to say is that this crazy evil story shows us that love is stronger than hate and that God will find a way.
It is also a reminder of how dangerous this story is. All those in power should be terrified of Jesus and this story – because the very nature of the gospel is that Jesus threatens established power. Nothing can withstand the power of God. No amount of guns will save you. God will win, and triumph over your violent tendencies and evil motives. Watch out.
