  2. I often like to entertain the hypothesis that originally Christianity was essentially the nationalist Jewish accomodation to Greco-Roman rule. (Hellenization; Romanization). Currently I sometimes see Jesus as a partial, servant/healer/accomodationist. Possibly an illegitimate son of the Lord God Herod; the flat-out collaborator.

    But there is wisdom after all, in being humble enough to work for others. Even alleged enemies.

    "Love your enemy." Jesus said he never saw as much faith in the children of Israel, as he saw in the Roman centurion.
