Jesus devoted little if any of his ministry to dismantling unjust systems and structures. He spent nearly all of his time preaching the gospel, teaching, and doing good to individuals.
We don't live in 1st-century Israel, but his model is still relevant to us.

The Bible never tells us explicitly that Jesus ever pooped. If you're a Christian, and are pooping, that's not The Gospel.
Are you constipated? Getting medication for that is also not The Gospel.
Jesus healed many ailments in His life, constipation wasn't one.

Tyler, I think Jesus *indirectly* dismantled unjust structures and systems by teaching, preaching, and transforming individuals. But that is not what people mean today when they talk about "dismantling unjust structures and systems."
