Ides of March
Updated: Mar 19
I am fascinated by Shakespeare's Julius Cesar. In high school, we even memorized the speech of Marc Anthony after Cesar's murder.
For some reason, it came to me that Julius Cesar's life had a keen resemblance to that of Jesus:
Both were were kings, not to mention same initials. Both were much loved during their times.
Their enemies were envious of how the people followed them. Both were judged unfairly, plotted for murder and killed.
I researched my thoughts and was surprised to find that they had so much more in common than those above! Even the soldier who stabbed Jesus on his side had the same name as the statesman who first stabbed Julius Cesar. Eerie but true.
The only difference is that only one of them rose from the dead.
