I imagine he only went against some of their interpretations because as I said we are all free to interpret how we see fit, all the leaders wouldn't have agreed on everything, it's why we question and debate it's part of the process. Anyone can put their interpretation up against others, perhaps only non Jews find this of importance? Anyone could lecture anyone if they wanted, depending on how you felt about it yourself as to whether they were right or wrong. I do feel that too much is made of Jesus arguing with people, it's normal, well for us anyway
When I was working one place on our beat was the military psychiatric hospital before it closed down, always good for a cuppa and a chat during the night. One psychiatrist said he was always very careful about people who claimed to be G-d or a messiah because you never know, they could be telling the truth lol.
I don't know if I would call Jesus' actions arguing. It may sometimes be a fine point, but in my understanding, He was pointing out the correctness of the Old Testament scriptures versus some of the religious practices of the day. Mind you, that is from my belief that Jesus was not only man, but God man and very God. The way I as a Christian see it, even in the temple incident, His was a righteous anger, that is, against sin.
