Jesus without doubt had some strong insights and could see, that what people were seeing as reality, was not the truth and also not what the priests in temples were teaching. He tried to share his view with people and tried this for several years, walking all over the country. People were listening to him like they did to the traveling entertainer in those days, because they had no TV or other ways to have some amusement. So they gathered and were listening to him, but did they understand what he was talking about? Probably not, even his energy was strong, because he had a mission and his vision gave him strength. So he could convince a few guys to follow him. Being all the time together with Jesus, so for sure they learned something from him, but was it a transformation? It doesn't look like... They must have had encountered quite some difficulties, traveling through the country without resources and not really understanding what it was all about...
When they got into trouble with the authorities and Jesus was accused of conspiracy, then he didn't defend himself at all, even though the judge could see that Jesus was innocent, so he had ask him to defend himself. But Jesus didn't say anything in his favor even though this would have been easy. Why he did this? Was he so tired of people and their games, that after trying for so long to tell them that there is a 'higher meaning of life' and a *reality* that goes beyond they were perceiving, - nobody was really interested, so he gave up? He must have been so deeply disappointed that he didn't see any solution.
Another question is, if Jesus would be more successful if he would try the same thing in our days. Even though he would have the advantage to have an advanced way to communicate with people and distribute his message through all the media like Internet, TV, movies, books and all the other, the lack of interest from people would not much different than two thousand years ago. People are now even more engaged and trapped in their way of life, they wouldn't make more effort to understand him than they did in the old days. Even though Jesus would use a modern way to express himself and proof and backup his information with scientific and professional arguments.
Probably he would fail in the same way he did before, except that his profound and convincing talks would be integrated into the already sophisticated established mindset of our days, but that's all. No transformation would happen and our modern Jesus would just end up forming a new sect or an exclusive group of followers. When Jesus would realize that these followers were just using his information for their own identification game to make themselves stronger, then he would be in the same situation when he gave up before, knowing that his 'message' could solve all the problems people have in their life and also all those existing confusion on all levels of humans. Realizing that people have the same obstacles and blindness then two thousand years ago, - then what would he do NOW?
Is the dilemma clear? In that every one is, who tries to share an information that comes out of the individual experience from another level as the result of a personal transformation process and that goes beyond the established and limited mindset of people and our society as a whole?
