Christ preached such rough things to the Jews

I find it interesting when those who knew best describe the Savior’s preaching radically differently from the way we think of it. In my lifetime I have never heard a rendition of Christ’s preaching in which he doesn’t say everything in an overdone, non-human tone like I am listening to “easy listening” radio. Now compare both that style, as well as the intention of his teachings, to these words by Joseph Smith about him:

“I have not the least idea, if Christ should come to the earth and preach such rough things as He preached to the Jews, but that this generation would reject Him for being so rough.”.
