Jesus (PBUH) and the Roman Occupation.
This is a serious question for people that know the Political situation at the time of Jesus (PBUH).
Did he accept Roman occupation?
Did he fight Roman occupation?
Or did he not care either way?

You can fight without being physical. Politically and with your voice and opinion.

Matthew 21:12-13 (King James Version)
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves
This sound like the actions of a man who can put on the gloves when needed...
Of course I still think jesus is only a character in a book, no more real than harry potter or james bond... but you don't forget the stories after high school with the catholic brothers

He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. – the Bible, Luke 22:36
Here is one passage from the bible. I know it doesn't have anything to do with the Roman occupation, I'm just trying to further my own 2nd Amendment political agenda. Carry on.

The pharasees were teaching based upon pesonal beliefs as well as to control the populace. Just like I think Islam does to some of the followers now.

as i thought, we were talking about the same thing. jesus went against the religious leaders' teachings, referring to them as a "brood of vipers" and "whitewashed tombs" among other things.
