The Jews, especially the Law teachers and the Pharisees, put Christ in a certain mold - political one. The Messiah, the King who will come to save them from the Roman Empire. However, Jesus was unique in everything, which made the Jews furious and frustrated. They put a band on their eyes in order not to see His reality: the Savior and the great Redeemer but from the power of sin, hell and Satan. This is why they rejected Him since He was born. The Great Herod had tried to kill him, as well, since He was a baby.
