We never studied The New Testament, but I read that on my own.  I always felt that The Gospel of Matthew presented Jesus as a bit of a "radical' compared to the other gospels.  In this 1964 Italian movie, The Gospel According to St. Matthew, Jesus often appeared angry and detached...

That is interesting; I had no idea there was a movie on the Gospel of Matthew. I'm in a rush right now but will definitely watch the clip you posted.

Sorry mate but they did have a choice.Most historians regard nazism  as "tyranny by consent." By any measure Hitler and his government were hugely popular amongst the German people. They willingly indulged in the atrocities that he articulated. As have we by those from our leaders. As have most nations. to dismiss Hitlrr as an "insane dictator" somehow hood winking an entire nation is too easy a let off for mankind,

yes but in truth most people didnt know what they were electing, and after he came to power a lot of Germans were too scared to speak out against him, he certainly didnt have mandate to commit the atrocities or maybe the invasions.
