Two convicted thieves are crucified along with Jesus. In Matthew and Mark, both thieves mock Jesus. In Luke, one of them rebukes Jesus, while the other defends him.

In John, Mary, the mother of Jesus, and the beloved disciple were at the crucifixion. Jesus tells the beloved disciple to take care of his mother John — The Roman soldiers break the two thieves' legs a procedure designed to hasten death in a crucifixion , but they do not break those of Jesus, as he is already dead John In John , one soldier pierces Jesus' side with a lance , and blood and water flow out.

In Matthew —54 , an earthquake breaks open tombs. In Matthew and Mark, terrified by the events, a Roman centurion states that Jesus was the Son of God.

On the same day, Joseph of Arimathea , with Pilate's permission and with Nicodemus ' help, removes Jesus' body from the cross , wraps him in a clean cloth, and buries him in his new rock-hewn tomb.

Mary Magdalene alone in the Gospel of John, but accompanied by other women in the Synoptics goes to Jesus' tomb on Sunday morning and is surprised to find it empty.

Despite Jesus' teaching, the disciples had not understood that Jesus would rise again. Jesus' ascension into Heaven is described in Luke —53 , Acts —11 and mentioned in 1 Timothy In the Acts of the Apostles , forty days after the Resurrection, as the disciples look on, "he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight".

The Acts of the Apostles describes several appearances of Jesus after his Ascension. In Acts , Stephen gazes into heaven and sees "Jesus standing at the right hand of God" just before his death.

In Acts —18 , Jesus instructs Ananias of Damascus in a vision to heal Paul. After Jesus' life, his followers, as described in the first chapters of the Acts of the Apostles , were all Jews either by birth or conversion , for which the biblical term " proselyte " is used, [] and referred to by historians as Jewish Christians.

The early Gospel message was spread orally , probably in Aramaic , [] but almost immediately also in Greek. After the conversion of Paul the Apostle , he claimed the title of "Apostle to the Gentiles".

Paul's influence on Christian thinking is said to be more significant than that of any other New Testament author. Numerous quotations in the New Testament and other Christian writings of the first centuries, indicate that early Christians generally used and revered the Hebrew Bible the Tanakh as religious text , mostly in the Greek Septuagint or Aramaic Targum translations.

Early Christians wrote many religious works, including the ones included in the canon of the New Testament. The canonical texts, which have become the main sources used by historians to try to understand the historical Jesus and sacred texts within Christianity, were probably written between 50 and AD.

Prior to the Enlightenment , the Gospels were usually regarded as accurate historical accounts, but since then scholars have emerged who question the reliability of the Gospels and draw a distinction between the Jesus described in the Gospels and the Jesus of history.

Approaches to the historical reconstruction of the life of Jesus have varied from the "maximalist" approaches of the 19th century, in which the gospel accounts were accepted as reliable evidence wherever it is possible, to the "minimalist" approaches of the early 20th century, where hardly anything about Jesus was accepted as historical.

In AD 6, Judea , Idumea , and Samaria were transformed from a client kingdom of the Roman Empire into an imperial province, also called Judea.

A Roman prefect , rather than a client king, ruled the land. The prefect ruled from Caesarea Maritima , leaving Jerusalem to be run by the High Priest of Israel.

As an exception, the prefect came to Jerusalem during religious festivals, when religious and patriotic enthusiasm sometimes inspired unrest or uprisings.

Gentile lands surrounded the Jewish territories of Judea and Galilee , but Roman law and practice allowed Jews to remain separate legally and culturally.

Galilee was evidently prosperous, and poverty was limited enough that it did not threaten the social order. This was the era of Hellenistic Judaism , which combined Jewish religious tradition with elements of Hellenistic Greek culture.

Until the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Muslim conquests of the Eastern Mediterranean, the main centers of Hellenistic Judaism were Alexandria Egypt and Antioch now Southern Turkey , the two main Greek urban settlements of the Middle East and North Africa area, both founded at the end of the 4th century BCE in the wake of the conquests of Alexander the Great.

Hellenistic Judaism also existed in Jerusalem during the Second Temple Period , where there was conflict between Hellenizers and traditionalists sometimes called Judaizers.

The Hebrew Bible was translated from Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic into Jewish Koine Greek ; the Targum translations into Aramaic were also generated during this era, both due to the decline of knowledge of Hebrew.

Jews based their faith and religious practice on the Torah , five books said to have been given by God to Moses.

The three prominent religious parties were the Pharisees , the Essenes , and the Sadducees. Together these parties represented only a small fraction of the population.

Most Jews looked forward to a time that God would deliver them from their pagan rulers, possibly through war against the Romans.

New Testament scholars face a formidable challenge when they analyze the canonical Gospels. Scholars use a number of criteria, such as the criterion of independent attestation , the criterion of coherence , and the criterion of discontinuity to judge the historicity of events.

Mark, which is most likely the earliest written gospel, has been considered for many decades the most historically accurate.

The non-canonical Gospel of Thomas might be an independent witness to many of Jesus' parables and aphorisms. For example, Thomas confirms that Jesus blessed the poor and that this saying circulated independently before being combined with similar sayings in the Q source.

Early non-Christian sources that attest to the historical existence of Jesus include the works of the historians Josephus and Tacitus.

Scholars generally consider Tacitus' reference to the execution of Jesus to be both authentic and of historical value as an independent Roman source.

Non-Christian sources are valuable in two ways. First, they show that even neutral or hostile parties never show any doubt that Jesus actually existed.

Second, they present a rough picture of Jesus that is compatible with that found in the Christian sources: that Jesus was a teacher, had a reputation as a miracle worker, had a brother James, and died a violent death.

Archaeology helps scholars better understand Jesus' social world. Jesus was a Galilean Jew, [11] born around the beginning of the 1st century, who died in 30 or 33 AD in Judea.

The Gospels offer several indications concerning the year of Jesus' birth. Matthew associates the birth of Jesus with the reign of Herod the Great , who died around 4 BC, and Luke mentions that Herod was on the throne shortly before the birth of Jesus, [] [] although this gospel also associates the birth with the Census of Quirinius which took place ten years later.

The date range for Jesus' ministry have been estimated using several different approaches. A number of approaches have been used to estimate the year of the crucifixion of Jesus.

Most scholars agree that he died in 30 or 33 AD. The dates for Paul's conversion and ministry can be determined by analyzing the Pauline epistles and the Acts of the Apostles.

The most widely accepted dates derived from this method are April 7, 30 AD, and April 3, 33 AD both Julian. Scholars have reached a limited consensus on the basics of Jesus' life.

Many scholars agree that Joseph, Jesus' father, died before Jesus began his ministry. Joseph is not mentioned at all in the Gospels during Jesus' ministry.

Joseph's death would explain why in Mark , Jesus' neighbors refer to Jesus as the "son of Mary" sons were usually identified by their fathers. According to Theissen and Merz, it is common for extraordinary charismatic leaders , such as Jesus, to come into conflict with their ordinary families.

According to E. Sanders, the birth narratives in Matthew and Luke are the clearest case of invention in the Gospel narratives of Jesus' life.

Both accounts have Jesus born in Bethlehem , in accordance with Jewish salvation history, and both have him growing up in Nazareth. But Sanders points that the two Gospels report completely different and irreconcilable explanations for how that happened.

Luke's account of a census in which everyone returned to their ancestral cities is not plausible. Matthew's account is more plausible, but the story reads as though it was invented to identify Jesus as like a new Moses , and the historian Josephus reports Herod the Great's brutality without ever mentioning that he massacred little boys.

Sanders says that the genealogies of Jesus are based not on historical information but on the authors' desire to show that Jesus was the universal Jewish savior.

Most modern scholars consider Jesus' baptism to be a definite historical fact, along with his crucifixion. Dunn states that they "command almost universal assent" and "rank so high on the 'almost impossible to doubt or deny' scale of historical facts" that they are often the starting points for the study of the historical Jesus.

Most scholars hold that Jesus lived in Galilee and Judea and did not preach or study elsewhere. According to Ehrman, Jesus taught that a coming kingdom was everyone's proper focus, not anything in this life.

The Gospels portray Jesus teaching in well-defined sessions, such as the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew or the parallel Sermon on the Plain in Luke.

According to Gerd Theissen and Annette Merz, these teaching sessions include authentic teachings of Jesus, but the scenes were invented by the respective evangelists to frame these teachings, which had originally been recorded without context.

First, he attributed them to the faith of those healed. Second, he connected them to end times prophecy. Jesus chose twelve disciples [] the "Twelve" , evidently as an apocalyptic message.

In Ehrman's view, no Christians would have invented a line from Jesus, promising rulership to the disciple who betrayed him. While others sometimes respond to Jesus with complete faith, his disciples are puzzled and doubtful.

Sanders says that Jesus' mission was not about repentance , although he acknowledges that this opinion is unpopular. He argues that repentance appears as a strong theme only in Luke, that repentance was John the Baptist 's message, and that Jesus' ministry would not have been scandalous if the sinners he ate with had been repentant.

Jesus taught that an apocalyptic figure, the " Son of Man ", would soon come on clouds of glory to gather the elect, or chosen ones Mark —27, Matthew —31, Luke — He referred to himself as a " son of man " in the colloquial sense of "a person", but scholars do not know whether he also meant himself when he referred to the heavenly "Son of Man".

Paul the Apostle and other early Christians interpreted the "Son of Man" as the risen Jesus. The Gospels refer to Jesus not only as a messiah but in the absolute form as "the Messiah" or, equivalently, "the Christ".

In early Judaism, this absolute form of the title is not found, but only phrases such as "his messiah". The tradition is ambiguous enough to leave room for debate as to whether Jesus defined his eschatological role as that of the messiah.

Around AD 30, Jesus and his followers traveled from Galilee to Jerusalem to observe Passover. Sanders associates it with Jesus' prophecy that the Temple would be totally demolished.

His words as recorded in the Synoptic gospels and Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians do not entirely agree, but this symbolic meal appears to have pointed to Jesus' place in the coming Kingdom of God when very probably Jesus knew he was about to be killed, although he may have still hoped that God might yet intervene.

The Gospels say that Jesus was betrayed to the authorities by a disciple, and many scholars consider this report to be highly reliable.

After Jesus' death, his followers said he was restored to life, although exact details of their experiences are unclear. The gospel reports contradict each other, possibly suggesting competition among those claiming to have seen him first rather than deliberate fraud.

Michael White suggests that inconsistencies in the Gospels reflect differences in the agendas of their unknown authors. Modern research on the historical Jesus has not led to a unified picture of the historical figure, partly because of the variety of academic traditions represented by the scholars.

Jesus is seen as the founder of, in the words of Sanders, a '"renewal movement within Judaism. A disagreement in contemporary research is whether Jesus was apocalyptic.

Most scholars conclude that he was an apocalyptic preacher, like John the Baptist and Paul the Apostle. In contrast, certain prominent North American scholars, such as Burton Mack and John Dominic Crossan, advocate for a non- eschatological Jesus, one who is more of a Cynic sage than an apocalyptic preacher.

Since the 18th century, scholars have occasionally put forth that Jesus was a political national messiah, but the evidence for this portrait is negligible.

Likewise, the proposal that Jesus was a Zealot does not fit with the earliest strata of the Synoptic tradition. Jesus grew up in Galilee and much of his ministry took place there.

Modern scholars agree that Jesus was a Jew of 1st-century Palestine. The New Testament gives no description of the physical appearance of Jesus before his death—it is generally indifferent to racial appearances and does not refer to the features of the people it mentions.

The Christ myth theory is the hypothesis that Jesus of Nazareth never existed; or if he did, that he had virtually nothing to do with the founding of Christianity and the accounts in the gospels.

Apart from his own disciples and followers, the Jews of Jesus' day generally rejected him as the messiah, as do the great majority of Jews today.

Christian theologians, ecumenical councils , reformers and others have written extensively about Jesus over the centuries. Christian sects and schisms have often been defined or characterized by their descriptions of Jesus.

Jesus is the central figure of Christianity. These documents outline the key beliefs held by Christians about Jesus, including his divinity, humanity, and earthly life, and that he is the Christ and the Son of God.

The New Testament states that the resurrection of Jesus is the foundation of the Christian faith 1 Corinthians — Most Christians believe that Jesus was both human and the Son of God.

However, the doctrine of the Trinity is not universally accepted among Christians. Christians revere not only Jesus himself, but also his name.

Devotions to the Holy Name of Jesus go back to the earliest days of Christianity. A central tenet of Judaism is the absolute unity and singularity of God Deuteronomy , and the worship of a person is understood as a form of idolatry.

Judaic criticism of Jesus is long-standing. The Talmud , written and compiled from the 3rd to the 5th century AD, [] includes stories that since medieval times have been considered to be defamatory accounts of Jesus.

Medieval Hebrew literature contains the anecdotal "Episode of Jesus" known also as Toledot Yeshu , in which Jesus is described as being the son of Joseph, the son of Pandera see: Episode of Jesus.

The account portrays Jesus as an impostor. Islamic texts emphasize a strict notion of monotheism tawhid and forbid the association of partners with God, which would be idolatry.

The Quran describes the annunciation to Mary Maryam by the Holy Spirit that she is to give birth to Jesus while remaining a virgin.

It calls the virgin birth a miracle that occurred by the will of God. To aid in his ministry to the Jewish people, Jesus was given the ability to perform miracles , by permission of God rather than by his own power.

Qadi al-Nu'man explains that Jesus was from the pure progeny of Abraham , just as Ali and his sons were from the pure progeny of Muhammad , through Fatima.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has several distinct teachings about Jesus. Ahmadis believe that he was a mortal man who survived his crucifixion and died a natural death at the age of in Kashmir , India and is buried at Roza Bal.

In Christian Gnosticism now a largely extinct religious movement , [] Jesus was sent from the divine realm and provided the secret knowledge gnosis necessary for salvation.

Most Gnostics believed that Jesus was a human who became possessed by the spirit of "the Christ" at his baptism. This spirit left Jesus' body during the crucifixion, but was rejoined to him when he was raised from the dead.

Some Gnostics, however, were docetics , believed that Jesus did not have a physical body, but only appeared to possess one.

Some Hindus consider Jesus to be an avatar or a sadhu. Some of the earliest depictions of Jesus at the Dura-Europos church are firmly dated to before The depiction of Christ in pictorial form was highly controversial in the early Church.

Although large images are generally avoided, few Protestants now object to book illustrations depicting Jesus.

The Transfiguration was a major theme in Eastern Christian art, and every Eastern Orthodox monk who had trained in icon painting had to prove his craft by painting an icon depicting it.

Before the Protestant Reformation, the crucifix was common in Western Christianity. It is a model of the cross with Jesus crucified on it.

The crucifix became the central ornament of the altar in the 13th century, a use that has been nearly universal in Roman Catholic churches since then.

Jesus appears as an infant in a manger feed trough in Christmas creches, which depict the Nativity scene. I'm not saying this book "fixed" me.

Not even close. But it did make me feel as if I'm not alone, and explained that w This book really sparked my interest.

But it did make me feel as if I'm not alone, and explained that we've created a religion that is like a cookie cutter, when really, it wasn't like that at all.

Two thoughts really made me think: 1. Jesus went to the cross knowing everything that I would ever do, say, or think and feel. He still went to the cross to save me.

Aug 31, Ivy rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfiction , from-next. This was way different from what I expected.

The author weaves together his personal story with his beliefs and interpretations and tells us he wrote this book to encourage, educate and inspire.

He especially talks about fundamentalism, self-righteousness and hypocrisy. Bethke does a good job, correcting the tendency to put rules over a moral compass.

But he somewhat pulls towards the opposite extreme. Then again, he makes good points and challenges what you believe to know about religion.

The questions at the end of every chapter are a great addition. Nov 22, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: jesus. I read this book not primarily for myself, but with an eye toward the students I teach.

I often want to point them to books that are wise and Jesus-centered, but most of those [that have meat] are at a reading level that is too complex for them, or just aren't engaging to them [particularly if they don't know Jesus].

I was very pleased after finishing this book - it covers most of the bases of things I'd want them to know and understand.

I read a section of it in class the other day and they rea I read this book not primarily for myself, but with an eye toward the students I teach.

I read a section of it in class the other day and they really were engaged. Bethke has some good quotes in here, except that as a pretty well-read Christian I see where he steals most of his ideas.

I don't feel like this book is anything groundbreaking in terms of theology or application, but just solid repackaging of truth for a younger generation.

His bibliography in the back is helpful, as it points the reader toward the thinkers, pastors, and authors who very clearly influenced him.

I didn't give it 5 stars because the book as a whole doesn't quite flow as nicely as it could, and because the chapter on art and music seems a bit heavy-handed and harsh.

It reminds me of Romans in that I think he'll look back and realize that as one who enjoys Christian freedom he shouldn't impose that on everyone.

Some people enjoy the art he deems cheesy. It's strange, too, because that chapter is the only one in which there seems to be a less than conciliatory tone.

Overall, really good book. Dec 17, Kris rated it liked it Shelves: religion-christianity , audiobooks. I was surprised at the quality of this one.

I'm not wild about Bethke's famous youtube video, as I think it uses bad vocabulary and gives the wrong impression.

But he has the chance to explain himself in this book, and I can accept most of his explanations. Begrudgingly I'm giving this one three stars. It's Bethke trying to speak to disillusioned youth at large in this book -- those who do not understand the importance of, and place for, the Christian church in the world today.

Okay fine, for the I was surprised at the quality of this one. Okay fine, for the right audience, this book could be a good help.

But it still rubs me the wrong way as he singles out the world "religion" as the bad word, representing all the negative results of times when the Christian message is distorted.

Instead, he should use words like "legalism" or "fundamentalism. But again, he falls into the trap which most non-denoms fall into, that being: What are the means of grace?

If we are saved by grace alone, how do we know we are saved? He keeps the emphasis on Jesus alone, and rightly so, but there's no assurance of salvation anywhere, so in the end it goes back to "feelings" and "good works" in general.

But that's me critiquing what's not in the book. To stay on point: I see how he's trying to write to a specific audience at a very basic level, and I understand it.

But his aversion to traditions of the faith still rub me the wrong way Dec 05, Kaysi rated it really liked it Recommends it for: evangelicals. Shelves: read-in I wouldn't say I agree with every single word he writes, but Bethke and I have come to a LOT of the same conclusions at this stage of our journeys.

Bethke's rise to recognition came as a result of his spoken word YouTube videos, which are excellent, but that also means he didn't set out to be an author.

He acknowledges as much in the book's introduction, and it is evident in his writing style. At times the book feels more like a rambling rant than cleanly divided chapters of organized thoughts; however, to be honest I really didn't mind because the things he's addressing are so important.

I'm just glad someone is saying what he's saying. For those who are already on that journey, there's probably a lot here that will resonate with you and possibly help you to feel a little less alone.

Es wird vermutet, dass er aufgrund seiner revolutionären Auslegung der jüdischen Schriften von der traditionellen jüdischen Glaubensgemeinschaft als Gefahr angesehen wurde.

Der Unruhestifter musste aus dem Weg geräumt werden. Das Ende der Geschichte ist bekannt: Pontius Pilatus verurteilt Jesus zum Tod durch Kreuzigung.

In der Bibel findet man vier verschiedene Versionen des Lebens und Wirkens Jesu. Die vier Evangelisten Markus, Matthäus, Lukas und Johannes verfassten viele Jahre nach der Kreuzigung Jesu, etwa zwischen den Jahren 70 und , ihre Texte über Jesus.

Dabei ging es ihnen jedoch weniger um seine Familie, Freundschaften, Liebesbeziehungen, seine Kindheit oder seine Jugend als vielmehr um seine Zeit als Prediger, seine religiöse Botschaft und seine Wunder, die er vollbracht haben soll.

You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, O and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell P as you are.

Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred?

In oth Apart from being an inspirational leader and teacher, the Gospels describe many miraculous feats performed by Jesus.

They can sound unbelievable today, but what would they have meant to first-century Jews? The miracle of the raising of the widow's son takes place in the village of Nain in Galilee.

Jesus arrives in Nain on the occasion of a funeral when he is approached by a widow whose only son has died. When Jesus brings the man back to life the crowd are astonished, but what delights them more than this triumph over death is the meaning of the miracle.

The miracle reminds them of the great Jewish prophet Elijah who, eight centuries earlier, had also raised the only son of a widow in a town in Galilee.

Elijah was famous as a miracle worker and as a prophet who rebuked those Jews who under the influence of pagan idolatry had strayed from devotion to God.

Elijah never died - he was transported to heaven in a chariot of fire. The parallels between Jesus and Elijah were hugely significant.

At the time the Jews were longing for an end to Roman oppression and the return of the kingdom of God - a new age in which peace, freedom, righteousness, faithfulness and the rule of God would prevail.

The first stage in that road to salvation was the arrival of a prophet who - like Elijah - would rail against sin. Maybe Jesus was that prophet - maybe even a reincarnation of Elijah?

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is? Clearly though, the Gospel writers believed Jesus was more than a prophet.

In Matthew and Mark , just after the transfiguration,. The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?

But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.

The resonances between Jesus and Elijah would have been striking to first century Jews and to Christians familiar with the Old Testament.

But as Christianity spread into the Roman Empire, the miracle of the raising of the widow's son acquired other meanings.

The most important is that it prefigured Jesus' own resurrection. In fact the miracle in Nain is one of three times when Jesus raises the dead.

He also raises Jairus' daughter Matthew , Mark , Luke and his friend Lazarus John But there was a key difference between these miracles and the resurrection of Jesus.

The widow's son, Jairus' daughter and Lazarus were resuscitated or revived: they would eventually die again.

Jesus on the other hand would live forever. His resurrection entailed a complete transformation in his body and spirit, a complete victory over death.

When Jesus arrives in a deserted and remote area to preach to a crowd of , he is told that the people are hungry. They discuss whether to go back to the villages to get food, but it's getting late, so instead Jesus asks the disciples to order the crowd to sit in groups of fifties and hundreds, and to gather what food is available.

All they manage to collect is five loaves and two fishes. But Jesus works a miracle and there is enough to feed the multitude, so much so there are twelve basketfuls of leftovers.

The ancient meaning of this miracle would have been clear to the disciples and the crowd. Jesus had acted like Moses , the father of the Jewish faith.

In every respect, the miracle echoed Moses and his miracle in the Sinai wilderness when he fed the multitude of Hebrews. Moses had left Ramesses on the fertile lands of the Nile Delta, crossed a sea - the Red Sea - and headed east towards a deserted area - the Sinai wilderness.

Jesus had left Bethesda on the fertile lands of the Jordan Delta, crossed a sea - the Sea of Galilee - and headed east towards a deserted and remote area - the Golan Heights on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee.

When Jesus orders the crowd to sit in fifties and hundreds he is echoing Moses the general who often ordered the Hebrews to sit in squares of fifty and one hundred.

In the Sinai, Moses fed a multitude with quails and manna, the bread of heaven; in the Golan Heights Jesus fed a multitude with fish and bread. In both miracles there were basketfuls of leftovers.

To first-century Jews the miracle of the loaves and fishes signalled that Jesus was like Moses. The reason is that in Jewish minds, Moses was a role model for the Messiah.

The Jews were praying for a saviour to come and free them from foreign oppression. They believed he would be someone like Moses who had freed the Israelites from Egyptian slavery.

Maybe Jesus was the leader they were waiting for? The crowd certainly thought so - after the miracle, the crowd try to crown Jesus king of the Jews there and then.

After the miracle of the loaves and fishes, Jesus tells the disciples to head back to the fishing village of Bethsaida whilst he retires to the mountain to pray on his own.

Later that night, the disciples are crossing the sea of Galilee and making little progress against the strong wind when they suddenly see Jesus walking on the water.

At first they think it's a ghost, but Jesus reassures them, telling them - 'Take heart, it is I!

Do not be afraid! This religion, plagued by rules and control was more interested shaming Jesus than it was praising him. Following Jesus' example is much easier than following man-made rules.

You can never be good enough in man's eyes. In the eye's of God, you can be made new. It amazes me how many people continue to follow a Church doctrine that doesn't lead anyone to Christ.

Making up counter-productive rules and hoops to jump through is precisely what the Pharisees were doing to Jesus. Discover more.
