"...Jesus makes it clear in this passage that it is not for men to enforce the laws of God. With the exception of cases in which one human being has done injury to another, the right to punish human behavior is reserved for God."
Yah has before used men to punish men. I am thinking of Numbers 15:32-36 where the people were directly told to stone a man who broke the Sabbath.
And in Leviticus 24:10-16 they were directly told to stone a man who blasphemed the Name.
In both of these cases they put the person "in ward" and brought them to Moses.
Moses did take it to the Boss, though, so I guess you can't really call it vigilante justice...
But the precedent is clear.
"and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name"
Edit: "Jesus Christ" was a Hebrew Israelite from the family of Judah(Yahudah), one of the 12 sons of Jacob. He had a Hebrew name. That name has been put through the meat grinder of transliteration for a couple thousand years.
His name is more like Yahusha the Messiah. YaHU-ShA = YaHUaH is deliverance(salvation)

Hear, O Israel: YHUH our God YHUH one. And thou shalt love YHUH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
