First of all, Jesus was an Adult.
Second of all, He was NOT a VICTIM. He went to the Cross in Obedience to His Father’s Will and Willingly Suffered to Redeem us.
Third of all, the Roman Legionaires were Occupiers, and were not legitimate Authorities of the Israelite State.
Fourth of all, Jesus’ Suffering was NOT a Political ACT, but a Redemptive SPIRITUAL one. That is one of the reasons many Jewish people did not accept Him.
Fifth, and most importantly, I think it is Child Abuse, that a parent would cause his own child pain and humiliation, by setting him up to be rejected by his teachers, in order to suit his own twisted agenda.
But that’s just my own humble opinion.
