    "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls" (Matt. 11:28-29).

    Off the top of my head, I can't recall much about JC and anger management that's positive. The guy curses a fig tree for not having fruit out of season, he gets pissed at the disciples when they fear for their life in a storm while boating, and he tells them to shake the dust off their feet in condemnation of those towns where his disciples are not received well.

    Proverbs 19 advises the reader/listener to let the rage-prone go ahead and screw themselves over, because they'll do it eventually anyway, regardless of how much you try to help them.

    If you want to make that JC-specific, I suppose that the whole scene where Jesus gets mad and overturns moneychanging tables in the Temple is an object lesson. Pissing off the devotees of the temple cult didn't work out so well for him.

    What does a guy have to do to get crucified around here! 🙂

    Didn't work out well for Jesus, no. For those who believe in him, yes.

    LOL! Sounds like Mel Brooks movie quote.
