Disciple James log. Christianity is the crushingly brilliant, successful, defeat of Jesus rescue attempt.
Jesus gave his life to save us from the scribes and pharisees.
Jesus gave his life to try and save our souls From Slavery to our head and flesh.
Describes in Pharisees could not eliminate the fact of jesus.
But they could and did change the meaning of Jesus, from being a liberator from them, to a liberator from physical death and a material hell.
And they could eliminate him as a threat by changing him from being a human being to being a remote god.
Problem solved. The real crucifixion.
