Bullies and their taunts have plagued vulnerable children—and adults—from the biblical period to our own day. Educators, those in the counseling professions and victims of bullying, have labored in recent years to increase awareness of the soul-destroying effects bullying has on children, their families and the larger community.
As we seek to educate our children about and protect them from the heartbreaking experience of being taunted by a bully, we may look to the model and teaching Jesus offered when he encountered this problem.
In this guided reflection, Brian B. Pinter offers passages from the Bible on the theme of taunting and reconciliation and explores what the example of Jesus can offer.
