Contemplating the popularity of the Incarnate Christ, the leaders of the Jews feared that, if they took no action to oppose Jesus, "...all men will believe on him, and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation," John 11:48.

Understandably, the teaching of Jesus posed a threat to the dominance of Talmudic Judaism within Incarnation-era Remnant of Israel.  And in the long term, the Kingdom of Heaven is destined to break in pieces and consume all of the kingdoms of men, Daniel 2:28-45.

But, considering teaching such as "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's," how did Jesus and his teaching pose to Rome an immediate threat such that (at least in the eyes of the leaders of the Jews) Rome would depose the leaders of the Jews and dissolve the national entity comprised of the tiny (albeit troublesome) post-captivity remnant of Israel?
