What Truly Enraged the Jewish Leaders

Note: So, I’m venturing out a bit from what I normally do. Just know that you don’t have to believe this. To me these things are personal, but with an unquenched desire to share, I’m daring to share.

Jesus had the power, ability and authority to forgive. He knew everything about people, including their hearts and circumstances. When Jesus gave forgiveness to the woman Mary, taken in adultry, this incensed the Jewish leaders, showing His preeminence over their unrighteous dominion. What made things worse for the Jews, was that in the law of Moses, such should be stoned.

Jesus started out by writing in the dirt, the very thoughts and intents of these men, who knew about the woman, and secretly wanted what she had to offer. Jesus had started out by drawing out the foremost accuser, and then went down the line.

After Jesus forgave her, He, knowing who she really was, and the hard trial and weakness she had been given, beyond this, truly knew who she was, and He took her unto wife.

There is record of the name of the wife Jesus took in the recovered dead sea scrolls. It simply says, speaking about his wife: and her name was Mary, one of his disciples.

This is truly what caused the Jews to be completely set on his death at all costs. He was turning upside-down what they felt was their’s to protect, and was doing it with miracles, forgiving, parables and confoundings, all to the building up of their wrath unto the point where they had Him mockingly tried, for where there was no offense.

The truth can never be condemned, on earth or in hell, only accused. Christ was not killed, but He voluntarily gave up his Spirit, that He could then also heal, and voluntarily re-enter His then glorified resurrected body.
