  •  Jesus didn't just go after individuals (5+ / 0-)

    He went after the institutions, too, even if he regarded them as a separate domain ("give unto Caesar.")

    He talked about the institutional leaders tithing mint and cumin, in order to preserve their wealth. He talked about lawyers using the letter of the laws to keep the marginalized in their marginalization, even while refusing to follow the letter of the law themselves. He talked about the temple (closest thing to Jerusalem city hall in 33 AD) being turned into a profaned marketplace.

    Jesus did desire there to be communal change as well as personal change, even if he was deeply skeptical about it happening.
