    destruction of the temple. The Sanhedrin were all Pharisees, Judaism today is Pharisonic.

    they were the good guys.

      The religious leaders opposed by Jesus look just like the religious leaders of organizations like LC-MS and SBC. The spin we find in the gospels -- calling them smug, self-righteous and intolerant -- was a result of what the gospel writers wanted to get across, whether true or not. The problem is that we now have millions of supposed Christians who act like the same smug, self-righteous and intolerant folks whose behavior was supposedly condemned by Jesus. These "conservatives" may call themselves Christian, but they don't act like followers of the Jesus portrayed in the gospels.

      Americans can make our country better.
