- Jesus could have saved them from the destruction of Jerusalem but they didn't listen?

- I've heard that the parable of the king makes sense as being about one of the Herods/economic inequality, and if it is about the kingdom not instantly appearing it could be him telling them about the persecution at the hands of a malignant king.

- Zaccheus I don't know how to deal with, because Jesus came to change the minds of people in collusion with oppression, and save them from their own oppression too? Part of me is like 'TOO LIBERAL', but idk. I mean, I collude. Most people collude in some way. I doubt all our ways are as easy to change as giving all our money away because everything's so tied up with oppressive systems, and you can't necessary destroy them without technology for organisation &c&c.

- Apart from Zaccheus and the reworking of the king story, a lot of this is familiar. Luke does add/embellish, though.
