Did Jesus Make a Mistake?

When Jesus reached Jerusalem he attacked the Pharisees and Sadducees (the religious authorities) and threatened to replace them.

Was this a mistake?

Jesus' philosophy was to love your enemies not to attack them and threaten them.

When Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane he prayed for the cup to pass from him.  He did not pray for the Pharisees and Sadducees as he had preached.

It was not until he was on the cross that he prayed for his enemies.

The Mars/Pluto conjunction in Jesus' progressed horoscope opposed his natal solar stellium in Pisces.  This can be read as biting off more than you can chew, provoking authority, and inviting a test of strength resulting in power struggles and violence.

This certainly happened to Jesus.

So should Jesus have behaved differently?
Should he have recognized that the Pharisees and Sadducees (and the Romans) were motivated by fear - fear of God and fear of revolt.

Jesus inadvertently triggered their worst fears.

Had he talked about fear and had compassion for those who were captive to that fear the result might have been different.

Jesus said not to resist evil but to pray for those you perceive as evil.

You will find that they are motivated by fear.
And you can have compassion for them.
