Jesus' legacy when he died on the cross was such that it was untouchable by the Roman probate courts and tax courts. His personal property was easily disposed of in minutes at the foot of his cross. Of institutional property there was none; hence there was no business property for the apostles to inherit and fight over should they be tempted to continue their internal power struggle that was still going on as recently as the Last Supper. Furthermore, the hecklers who targeted the man on the center cross seemed to be correct in their impudent assessments that he had nothing left even remotely suggestive of the grounds or appropriate power structures indicative of a viable kingdom. The trilingual placard over his head stating his kingship was an irony that could be tolerated easily enough because it seemed so ridiculous. Only one of his men stood by him at the cross. He had kept nothing for himself to fall back on in hard times. He had invested his all in a spiritual kingdom and demonstrated most convincingly what it means to wait for the kingdom of God.
