He sounds like a real asshole. I guess JC and I aren't so different afterall.He was adversarial with the Jewish priests and he publicly embarrasses them on several occasions. He called them a brood of vipers to their faces. He mocked them for how they observed the sabbath. He mocked them for how they prayed. He mocked the pagan idols/monuments on multiple occasions. He denounced whole towns of people in Chorazin, Capernaum and Bethsaida. He directly quotes Daniel at the priests when they ask him if he's God. That was a giant slap across their face (they started beating him after). There are others, this is just off the top of my head.
Jesus was most definitely adversarial. Most churches gloss over this stuff.
