Second, he was not Jesus[sic] Christ of Nazareth, he was Jesus[sic], the Christ, Nazarite, i.e. the anointed nazarite. And, what is a Nazarite?

H5139
נזר נזיר
nâzı̂yr nâzir
naw-zeer', naw-zeer'

Nazarite = “one separated” ~ Thayer's Greek/English Lexicon of the New Testament

Yahushua [JESUS] was, arguably, the first "individual secessionist", teaching "individual secession".

"If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."
