(Matthew 2:6, citing Micah 5:2) ** Also, Nazareth was just a tiny town of probably less than 500 people of dubious reputation until one former local started a movement that grew into one of the world's largest religions.

* BadassPacifist: The ''only'' time Jesus gets violent is when the Merchants are defiling the temple, and he doesn't even directly attack them, just does the most epic series of {{flip the table}}s ever. Otherwise, he acts as a benign mentor. He also deliberately avoids using his Godly powers in any context besides making a point to his disciples, to set an example that you can follow his teachings, even if you don't have his abilities.

* ToBeLawfulOrGood: The RulesLawyer Pharisees frequently try to entrap Jesus with this dilemma. Jesus rebutted them by arguing that to do good is to follow what the Law intends. On one occasion, Jesus is presented with the chance to heal a man on the Sabbath, which they believed would violate the Laws of Moses[[note]]which forbid any kind of work on the Sabbath[[/note]]. Jesus countered, "[[TakeAThirdOption It is lawful to do good on the Sabbath]]!" and proceeds to heal the man right in front of them. They don't take this very well at all.

* TrashTheSet: A lucrative business of changing "unclean" foreign currency to "acceptable" Temple shekels and selling animals acceptable for sacrifice had sprung up in the Court of Gentiles. Jesus was having none of it because Jewish people who wanted to worship God were being gouged and Gentiles who wanted to worship God had to put up with the noise and smell of a marketplace. So he turned the money changers' tables over and drove both the unscrupulous businessmen and animals out. Then he sat down to teach.
