Was Jesus Religious

Jesus showed an adamant indifference to dogmas, systems, priestly sacrifices, altars with emphasis on outward forms - including fasting and the sabbath, which were part of the law of Moses.

It is noteworthy that while Paul referred to his life as a Pharisee as “the strictest sect of our religion,” he never refers to his faith in Christ as religion. While he at least once referred to pagans as religious, he never describes Christians that way. No writer of the New Testament even hints of Jesus introducing a new religion.
