Assuming that Jesus was raised in the traditions of his day practicing spiritual disciplines like studying scripture, praying, and helping the less fortunate, did he become a radical spiritual revolutionary because of, or in spite of, this participation in religious custom?

I think he developed a framework, a world view because of his participation in the culture. This allowed him to be as radical as he was. Turning on the culture, or parts of it, requires an awareness of the culture, right? And it is more radical to go through this transformation, than to be an outsider critiquing.
