Jesus was bringing a victory that was deeper than what the Jews were looking for. It was freedom from sin, and reconciliation with God — through the Gospel. It was the rebuilding of what real community looked like. He was going to die for sinners, and those who would repent and believe in him would be justified, sanctified, and called into community. This was the beginning of the kingdom of God, and it was going to start with what we now call “church”.
