Yada yada. The Romans didn't care about blasphemy, they just wanted social order. They didn't even want to kill him.<quoted text>
No stories of Jesus show anything other than the blasphemy charge.
He was persecuted was for upsetting the money tables and threatening the temple status quo and the temple is where the charges against him came from. Figure it out. Oh, I almost forgot. You're the guy who swallows the whole Joseph Smith story. Never mind.
