However, Jesus followed the Law, and did so, perfectly.
> Significant numbers of people urged Jesus to take radical steps, to seize political power, while it was favorable. But Jesus displayed no interest in doing so.
> Jesus was certainly liberal in his affection for people, his devotion of personal time, energy and resources to others. But he did not align himself with a political party.
> 'Conservative', is not a term that well describes Jesus, who was modest, but generous, and critical of responsible leaders who ignored the needs of the common person. Jesus also warned against paying lip service to spiritual responsibilities.
> Jesus was not a 'moderate', but 'moderate'- or 'moderation'- is term that suits him. Jesus was certainly passionate about the truth and his heavenly Father, but 'passion' does not describe Jesus, either, since "mildness", "patience" and "self-control" accompanied Jesus' perfect qualities of "love, joy, peace...kindness, goodness" and "faith".- Galatians 5:22
Jesus was certainly 'moderate' in habit, but did not sit in the seats of 'moderates'.
> > It may be popular to define Jesus as 'radical', 'conservative', even 'fundamentalist'. But Jesus was actually balanced- perfectly so.
He was calm and reasonable. He displayed patience and endurance, along with respect for authority. He refused to engage in politics, and expressed intense anger at the sight of commercialism, conducted in the midst of spiritual activity.
