Politics is nothing new to this world; Jesus would certainly tell us that. The Urantia Book teaches that it was politics and not God's will that brought on Jesus' assasination. Judas is not the hero of the Jesus story, forcing the death of Jesus because that's what God wanted. Judas was a traitor, who betrayed Jesus to his political and religious enemies. He did so for his own political purposes.
It was no secret to Jesus that the religious rulers of his day wanted him dead. They might not have sought his death so fervently had he not had this habit of telling the truth. But Jesus was truth for his generation and for all generations. And so, he cleared the temple, and sealed the determination of the religious leaders to assassinate him.
The domination and control of religious leaders on this world is also nothing new. For most of history, religious leaders and political leaders have been one and the same. Religious leaders have used religion to control the populace. They dominate and control the average person with fear. Especially fear of the punishment of an angry and offended God, However, if the teachings of Jesus are to be believed, that God never existed, nor ever shall.
The Urantia Book's account of the Last Temple Discourse is Jesus calling out the sinful acts of these wicked religious leaders. In short, he tells them exactly how it is, in no uncertain terms. He does not equivocate. This is the righteousness of God in action, Jesus dressing down the sinful leaders of this world. Makes one wish he would come again and do the same thing now. Maybe he will.
When you hear the strength and the power of his words, it makes you want to cheer, "You tell them Master!" There is no greater story of the shellacking of the wicked in all of world literature.
