The tradition of Judea and Jerusalem:
The section concerning Judea deals with internal problems of the Christians. The claim to leadership of the Anabaptist Christians (John) and the Jewish Christians (James) is rejected, 10:35-45.
The Jerusalem surrender of the James Christians leads to the outward climax of Jesus’ ministry in the entry into Jerusalem, 11:1-11, and in the cleansing of the temple, 11:12-26.
Jesus’ ministry is summarized from a Jewish Christian perspective: Jesus stands for a renewed, purified Judaism.
