22. You just mentioned context...
He was taking his followers from their homes to follow him, removing them from one faith tradition to another, in that moment. And he clearly says the foes are in the family home. That is no the wider culture, now is it? Can you show us how he lead any form of war againt the wider Roman culture? He called out those of his own faith, not those of other faiths, so he was very much tearing families asunder, but gee, he never took up againt the powers that be or the poets of the day at all.
He was talking about his life at the time, to his followers at the time. If you ask me, that much is clear as a bell.
