In Matthew 20, Jesus is asked by someone's mother if her kids could have a prominent space next to him in the coming kingdom. Jesus is not very impressed with this, and lets the mother know that she does not really know what she asking for.
Anyway, Jesus didn't make political moves and trades like we see in just about every institution.
