Was Jesus leading a generational movement?



What say you church geeks?  History geeks?

I posted this on Facebook, and realize I would love to hear from others...

how much was Jesus' life and work really a conflict between generations? Pharisees...? Caiaphus? Herod? (or, do I have this really all wrong-that generations are really a modern, or post-modern 'invention' and had no reality in 1st century Palestine)...what say you church geeks...? what say you history geeks?

What are the passages that point to generational conflict?  What are the passages that point to generational peace, or status quo?  How might a notion of Jesus as a leader of a generational movement impact the way that we understand generational conflict today?

Please comment...!
