It was such revolutionaries brought about the much-needed change whenever entropy tightened its grip on societies. It would have been very different world today if there weren't any Socrates, Karl Marx, Martin Luther, Jesus, Che Guevara, Gandhi, Mandela, Malcolm X and such. The world would have had more difficult progression without them.
- He dared to modify the commandments. NOBODY dares to change the centuries old law or tradition. Would we dare to even try such a thing in this century of absolute freedom?
- The fact is that he blasphemed! Blasphemy, especially within a monotheistic religion, is the Papa-Sin and the crime is punishable by stoning. So wasn't he radical or what?
- He ridiculed the eccelesticals publicly. That’s a death wish within any community.
- He, consciously or unconsciously, was the reason for a new faction within Jews and almost stirred up an uprising. It projected him as a coup leader.
- I do believe he had a soft corner (that much at least) to Mary Magdalene. Even if not he dared to associate with outcasts. That’s really bold of him. In all probability his relatives must have ostracized him.
- He had a natural inclination to break most social rules.
