Who Was Jesus?
Yup...This is just an exercize in curiosity. I'm assuming pretty much everyone knows the story of Jesus so I'm not really asking for a history here. I just want too see the range of opinion as I have really never seen any analisis of the character of Jesus from any prespectives asside from the various Christian outlooks.
Feel free to dicuss others prespectives, but please post your own before doing so.
And to not be hypocrical... I think that Jesus was the son of God, He came to the earth to recommit humanity to God's plan, and he died to change the relationship between man and the immortal consequences of his actions on earth. I think Jesus would pretty much be your normal guy, just with an infinate ammount of loving and care for everyone around him and a hole lot of jewish bood smarts. I think Jesus experianced all the emotions that every other human being experianced, and I think that most of the time he wasn't looking down on his followers in any way dispite the fact that they constantly proved themselfs to be lesser. I think Jesus had a very close friendship with all of his deciples and I think that he probably spent most of his time walking talking and joking with them when he wasn't teaching. Over all I think that Jesus was pretty much exactly the guy that the bible claimed he was.
