Wasn't it the conservatives of his time, that demanded Jesus be killed?
Please intelligent answers appreciated.
I know many of them back then were telling him his liberal , socialist views were not welcome.

Who ever said Jesus wasn't liberal is trying to stick their head in the sand.
He told people to help the needy
He said a rich man getting into heaven was as hard as a camel going through the eye of a needle.
He went against the status quo at the time
He was against getting rich from trading currency. He caused a huge ruckus with the money changers.
He hung out with plenty of people who were considered the bane of society.(i.e. prostitutes, etc) Republicans believe in being guilty by association.(i.e. Obama with Rezco, Ayers, Wright, etc...)
He also preached love for one another. That does not mean going around calling people a "stupid libtard".
He also said that everyone was equal in the eyes of God. Not republicans, they think that the only two sides are republican patriots and terrorist/marxist/communist/etc..Source(s): Liberal Christian

If you count the Pharisees, as proto- cons, then yeah, they were! But you also have to remember there were Messiahs coming out of the Woodwork back then too, so rival groups of dissident Anti-Romanists would have also been quite happy to bang in a nail or two, and the "Bloody Romans" themselves, they wouldn't have missed him much, either, but they were too Politically precariously perched to actually do the deed themselves, so they probably had papers out on him too! In fact, he was probably seen as the Messianic Bin Laden of his day, and lets face it, before he was even born, his own Relative, (Herod) had a contract out on him, so really, it was only ever going to end badly for the poor Sap! No wonder he ran off into the Desert! Should have kept going if you ask me, but then,wasn't that the same bloody Desert that Mo-hammed had a bit of a brainstorm in, and decided to have another go at the job? And isn't it same Desert that they are all having a Ruck over now? I tell you, People should stay well away from places like that! It's not even like there is anything there, really! Perhaps we should wait for a bit of a lull in the fighting and go and re designate it as a total no go area! Or pave it over with tarmac, and build something useful on it, like a huge Skatepark,? or a leisure complex? Or let the Sea in, and have a big Marina there.Source(s): KEEP OFF THE SAND, BY ORDER, THE MGT!

Jesus is above liberal/conservative labels. Each side can quote bits and pieces out of the Bible to try to claim Him. But one thing is clear - Jesus did not believe in compulsion. He believed in faith.
His views cannot be categorized as liberal or socialist. He did not believe that government could spend money better than the citizen. He did believe that we each have to be charitable and that we have to forgive. If those teachings are socialist, it would make every Pope a socialist, which is simply untrue.
Wherever socialists have taken power they have attacked Christian values and the church. Look at Russia, if you doubt me.
I think that socialists can be trusted to know who their enemies are.

Yes it was. The Jewish Sanhedron of the time, the high priest of which was Ciaphas Antipas, saw Jesus as challenging his authority, and the laws of Judahism!..Jesus was doing just that!..But not just the laws of Judahism, but Roman law as well!..He, and his followers refused to recognise Tiberius Caesar as a god!..Ciaphas, being very, very cunning in the way of politics, had Jesus arrested and accused of blasphemy!..But the Sanhedron was under Roman law at the time, and Jesus was literally a political hot potato!..They couldnt just stone him to death, so Ciaphas sent him off to Pilatus, the regional governer!..At first Pilate thought Jesus was a lunatic! So he sent him off to Herod 'The Great' who sent him straight back!..Old Pontius was no fool. he knew exactly what the Sanhedron and Ciaphas were up to! Jesus had challenged their total conservative religious control, so he had to go!..Pilate, no doubt fearing Sanhedron lead religious trouble if he didnt act, found Jesus guilty of treason against Rome, and crucified him!.. That was standard Roman punishment for treason at the time!..So, yes, it clearly was the forces of religious conservatism who killed him for daring to challenge them!..The evidence is irrefutable! And if he were to come back today?..The same sort of people would have him nailed back up on that cross so fast..his feet wouldnt touch the ground!

There was no such thing back them as a conservative or a liberal. They had only the wild crazy ones who did whatever they wanted or the believers of Jesus. There wasn't too much of anything in Between

Jesus is the TRUTH, the WAY and the LIGHT and His enemies can not stand of all these. Even today, they are still crusifying HIM every day, every way they can.

You may have a point there. And now it is the liberals of our time that is trying to kill him all over again. Think about it.

According to the story in the Bible, it was a political conspiracy instigated by a foreign occupying force that wanted to get rid of a politically dangerous dissident. ∠°)
