This is where Yahshau had enough of the current Cabal of his day and spoke harshly and acted in an extreme physical manner… surely NOT in the manner of a nice stereotypical “peaceful spiritual” person!
The big cities of today are all made in the image of Sodom and Gomorrah. Those who still have “Big City” thinking might put down their programmed beliefs for a moment and pause to ask WHY the broader rural communities think and feel the way they do?
This is when Yahshua clearly stated that he was NOT here to bring “Peace on Earth.”
THAT was a later add-on adaptation and mis-interpretation of the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches.
I would also add Luke 12:49 to the mix:
“I came to send fire on the earth,
and how I wish it were already kindled!”
