Jesus Rebel

This Jesus believed strongly in the old Hebrew ideas of Messiahship, that the Judeans should be self-ruled, and that Romans should take a hike. He gathers to him fishermen, rebellious government officials, and political schemers who are all working to thwart Rome. He’s not very smart. He tries to assert authority by reference to Hebrew scriptures, but then completely fails the reading comprehension portion of the test.

This is the negative example the Romans did not want followed.
