He Was A Conservative, Not A Radical
by Wayne Blank
An even greater irony of that though is that Jesus Christ was in fact an "ultra-conservative," or even "ultra-orthodox," when it came to the Holy Scriptures, and His absolutely-perfect adherence to them, and yet He is regarded, by millions of Jews and Christian-professing people alike, as someone who rejected it all and started a new religion called Christianity. Nothing could be farther from the Truth.
"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil"
Jesus Christ was no radical. He was in fact far more conservative than those who were viewed as the religious conservatives of His day - the people who had Him killed because He taught the Truth. Jesus of Nazareth didn't come to do away with the religion of His own people. He came to fulfill what they were all waiting for.
"Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Law [see The Decalogue], till all be fulfilled."
Jesus Christ was a very conservative Jew, racially and religiously, throughout His entire human lifetime (the photograph shows what remains of the Synagogue at Capernaum that Jesus attended i.e. Luke 4:31-32), although the Truth that He spoke was not always welcomed.
"And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all."
