I think they were anti all the rules that were related to cleanliness, ritually speaking, who a Jew could eat with, and the temple rules. I'm not sure if one would consider that political or social or religious reforming. Maybe all of them.

I totally agree, Dave. Of course, he would have had to use a "loud voice" to be heard.....no microphones yet! Smile Though I will say that I don't like screaming ministers either. I don't need to be yelled at to get the message.

He is?. Not according to the Bible. Nor to other people & cultures througout the history of Mankind.

Hmmmm. . . .Yahweh is hardly known through the history of man. Perhaps since the time frame from ~1,000 bce. But really, that wasn't really about any deity known as "Yahweh". It was only words in a book from men talking about a deity they believed to exist. It was still their own words. . . . . in effect, putting their own words in the mouth of their god and calling it "divine inspiration". It continues to this day.

So true Deavon my friend. And if people would look honestly at their religion they would conclude that much evil was done to others in the name of whatever God they choose to worship. And it's been this way since the biggining of time. But they have that lame old excuse that doesn't wash. "BUT THOSE WEREN'T REAL (insert whatever religion you want here.)
