Was Jesus’ silence violence?

If I really want to make myself ill, I imagine Jesus being alive today and think about how he’d be treated during this time of intense personal viciousness and social media insanity.

As it is now, I can barely stand reading the parts in Jesus’ biographies that chronicle how He was hounded, maligned, used and abused, conspired against, falsely accused, and murdered — and that’s just in His small geographic locale in the first century where things spread on foot and by personal word of mouth.

But today? The social media smear machines (especially most cable news networks), Twitter mobs, and the other venomous groups of our cancel culture that literally live to slander and ruin lives would make what we read in the gospels look like kid-gloves treatment.
