When Jesus healed the man on the Sabbath - defying the law, was He being a rebel?

When Jesus turned all the tables over in the Synagogue because they were trading in God's house, was He being a rebel?

When Jesus ate with the sinners and the scum of the earth, was He being a rebel?

When Jesus called Himself the Son of God, was He being a rebel?

When Jesus, being tempted by the devil, said "Woe, it is written......" was He being a rebel?

When Jesus said that He could forgive sins, was He being a rebel?

He was a rebel only in that he sought to change some of the principles of ancient Judaism, which I believe the state had become corrupted through finace, I believe. Judaism was a forefront of monotheism, and their beliefs were repressed by the polytheistic system of the romans who took over some time during Jesus's life.

That's the historical view, anyway.

If it's true, and I'm not saying it is, he was politically rebellious.

And, hey, with out rebels, nothing really gets done, does it?

Well ill second your view, jesus was no anarchist/rebel in the secular sense however in the spiritual metaphysical sense he was very much a rebel, he attmpted to show that the jewish Pharisee and Sanhedrin had been placing far too much empahssis on rituals and laws in the OT and they therefore lost a spirit of love and morality in their covennant, now while jesus may not have intended to be political rebel his actions certainly had that effect and result on the Pharisees and Romans whom saw him as just that.

However having said that i dont think christ intended to be political rebel it was just inevitable when religion is so tied to legalism and politics and challenges the status quo anyone whom challenges in this case Christ himself is likely to be called a political rebel or heretic even if essentially they are spiritual rebels of which the correct term in theology is heretic.
