Economist Lawrence Reed Explains Why Some People Wrongly Believe Jesus Was a Socialist

Economist and author Lawrence Reed is pushing back against arguments that Jesus was a “socialist” and refuted the ideas of Christian socialism while speaking with conservative Christian radio host Eric Metaxas this week. 

Reed, president emeritus of the Foundation for Economic Education, authored the June 2020 book Was Jesus a Socialist?: Why This Question Is Being Asked Again, and Why the Answer Is Almost Always Wrong.
