We may again visit this echoing excerpt from the new testament, and
perhaps sigh that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
(After all, that famous phrase has a meme in it.... "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose." Alphonse Karr.)
Matthew 10 :: New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Sends Out the Twelve
1 He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive
out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.
17 "Be on your guard against men; they will hand you over to the local
councils and flog you in their synagogues.
18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as
witnesses to them and to the Gentiles.
19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to
say it. At that time you will be given what to say,
20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father
speaking through you.
21 "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child;
children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.
22 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the
end will be saved.
23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. I tell you the
truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the
Son of Man comes.
