He was the fulfillment of all the Law and the Prophets--not a revolutionary break from them.
The words on the poster are poorly chosen. He told ONE MAN to sell what he had and give to the poor, because He saw in that man's heart that his
attachment to his possessions proved that his claim to having completely kept the Law was false--possessions ruled his life more than the true God.
Taken out of context, one might wrongly conclude that Jesus wants everyone to sell their possessions for the sake of the poor.
And, the instructions to give to Caesar what is Caesar's, elsewhere, do not say "give BACK to Caesar"--as if the things we have are from the
government, to be returned to the government.
