Who is Jesus, in your opinion?

God? Demigod? Son of God? Man? A popular character? For me, probably, still a person. The man from whom Pavel and his Church made God. And then you know …
First the persecution of Christians. Then Konstantin. Baptism of the Roman Empire. And centuries of persecution of non -surroundings. Total planting with fire and sword, and sweet exhortation. Active popularization of the image of Christ in all forms of art. Then in cinema, pop culture. Almost Beatles. And, Voila, Jesus is the most popular man on the planet. Jesus is a superstar! And he loves you.

What do you think?

  1. Let’s try to consider this issue impartially and neutrally. We will tell that he is simply a crucified character in the history of Israel, so to speak the national hero who arranged a pond in the minds of people with his sermons and healing people with the help of magic. Perhaps the students at first considered him the embodiment of Yahweh, then, when they saw his death, stole the body from the tomb and raised that he allegedly rose, so that his words were confirmed. The question arises – is they really for a false prophet they would go to die, for faith, which did not justify – would begin to preach and endure beating and persecution? Doubtful. Well, let’s say that the book of the acts of the apostles is also falsification. Then again the question – did the first thought came to my mind that the story with Jesus is fabricated? For 2000 years, am I the first such genius? Further. Suppose millions of Christians over the 20th centuries from R, X, in a deep error. They believe in a fairy tale, and it doesn’t even occur to them that this story is a pure fiction of cunning “dealers of religious business”? Is Martin Luther really Cretin, who planned to translate the Bible into German under the threat of being burned at the stake? Are thousands of modern preachers (people educated and serious) – are they also pursued only selfish interests and satisfy their own ambitions? Etc. Really. Really. Really? I will not scream here that Jesus God. Everyone knows the opinion of Christians on this issue. But the fact that this personality has won our minds, that after centuries and centuries we continue to talk about him, argue, think, kill each other (I’m not one of those), print the Bible with millions of print runs (and Christians claim that this whole book about him ) – and many other facts (I am not a historian, not an archaeologist, not the theologian and not a religious scholar, but I heard and read a lot about it) – all this is worthwhile to think once again, as you Artyom. Who is he all the same, this Jesus?

  2. Despite the fact that there are part of scientists who believe that the myth refers to a real historical character, I still think differently. In this whole riot of colors, a collective myth itself is more important than a particular person (the contribution of which could hardly be so big in the absence of at least printing at that time). With a sufficiently deep immersion in the genesis of the development of Christian ideas, it is extremely difficult to single out something really, unique, that which was not before. As for the data for scientific analysis, they are mainly a la: such and such a historian wrote that there was such and such a person about whom they talked about this and that. As for the attribution: God, the demigod, the son of God … – these are all ritual things. Red corner, regiment banner; Lenin lived; Lenin is alive; Lenin will live – from the same category.

  4. In my gopnic look, if the hedgehog dad is a hedgehog, then his son is a hedgehog. If the uniform Son of God is someone, then he is naturally God. If at the same time his mother has a person, then he is both a person. Both God and man. But not a centaur -some kind of half -deck. For God’s (Creator) with the TV (creation) is not compatible. If you do not believe it, show me a hybrid of a stool with a stool. Then I agree with you.

  5. Honestly to everyone his own. Everyone sees Jesus Christ as he wants to see. In the Gospel of Jesus, the Gospel was perceived in different ways. He was considered one of the prophets, resurrected by John, Samaritan and many others, and only not many accepted him as the Son of God, and some religious movements consider Jesus a collective or mythical character. But this is everyone personally and everyone is responsible for themselves.
    Personally, my opinion Jesus Christ is God’s Son, one of the personalities of the Trinity, who brought God’s love and eternal life.
    His teaching could not be invented truly divine, because only the highest ideal could give such high commandments. Where is it visible that they would answer evil with love? For sorry for the blessing? Would you replace selfishness with sacrifice?
    Remember the phrase from one old film:
    “You cannot believe in Christ – do not believe. You can’t believe Muhammad – do not believe. But know: Satan will come – and you will believe him because he will make you believe him. And it will be bad …”
    Jesus himself said the following words:
    “I came in the name of my father, and do not accept me; and if another comes in my name, you will accept him.”
    (Gospel from John 5:43)

  6. If Jesus Christ is not a true god and a true person, but it would be only a man … Perhaps, in this case, he would be the most terrible person all over the world. Mother more than me is not worthy of me; And who loves a son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; perhaps only God has a moral right to speak such words. Also, only God has the right to say such words: oh 3:36 The believer in the Son has an eternal life, and not a believer He will not see life in his son, but the anger of God is on him.
    John 6:40 The will of those who sent me is that everyone who sees my son and believing in him has an eternal life; And I will resurrect him later.
    John 11:25 Jesus told her: I am the Resurrection and Life; The believer in me, if he dies, will come to life. All serious historians admit that the gospels were not fakes, and that the modern text as a whole coincides with what was written by the apostles. That is, the apostles were in truth for Christ, believed in His Divinity. You can only personally deal with this issue for themselves. For myself, I solved this problem at the age of 18, I just found enough evidence of the resurrection of Christ, which in turn ironly proves His Divinity. Of course, there will be a question of the Church, but this is a completely different story.

  7. Much more important today for everyone will be aware of who he himself is in the discussion of this issue!
    Acts 5: 34-39: “Having stood in the Sanhedrin, a certain Pharisee, the name of Gamalil, the law teacher, respected by all the people, ordered the apostles to bring the apostles for a short time, and they told them: the Israeli men! Think about yourself about these people that you are with that with you with To do them. For a short-time Fevda appeared shortly before Sim, posing as a great one, and about four hundred people stuck to him; but he was killed, and everyone who obeyed him dissipated and disappeared. After him, Judas Galilee appeared during the census. And he carried away enough people after him; but he died, and everyone who obeyed him scattered. And now, I tell you, leave me alone and leave them; for if this is an enterprise and this is a matter – from people, then it will collapse, and it will collapse, and If from God, then you cannot destroy Him; beware so that you do not be the God -making. “

  8. Oddly enough, but in the explanation, the author certainly gave an answer to them the question posed. Jesus Christ is God, God is the Word. Indeed, in a person, the word is also inseparable from the body, it does not exist outside the specific face, it comes from him, that is, it is pronounced by a very definite person. And this word initially exists in the form of thought that human will gene.
    God is the Word and the Son of God, since truth comes only from God and belongs only to God.
    Finally, God is man. True, that is, perfect, not having evil. Since he himself says that God is love.
    So everything said by the author in the explanation of the question is correct: God is man. God is the Son of God, and He is most popular on earth (if I may say about the deity).

  9. Christ is the Son of God and the true God. In addition, he is the Savior of mankind from slavery from sin and death, into which man fell as a result of the fall. Hristos returned to all humanity the possibility of adoption by God and happiness with Him in the Kingdom of Heaven. Everything is evidence of Christ as his divine personality. “I am a existing one, as I say” “I and the father is one” “I am a door, I will come in to me,” “I am the way and truth and life” “I am bread that has gone from heaven” ”If you are not There are flesh of a human son and drinking his blood, there will be no life in you. “And much, much more. Hristic is not embodied in order to preach, not to leave the gospel, he was embodied in a slave’s pity to rise for all of us On the cross. And he did it. And died. And resurrected. And he gave us himself in the sacrament of his body and blood, so that we could escape from sin and death – and adopt our father, God. The Christ can be neither just a person, nor just a prophet. He cannot be a prophet because all the prophets, like Once, they testified and wrote about his incarnation and salvation of the world to him. It can not be a man, because he is a God -man: a perfect God and a perfect person at the same time. The author’s commentary on his own issue, unfortunately, shows that the author is unfamiliar with neither with a stranger. The gospel, neither with the epistles of the apostles, or with the essence of the prophecies of the great and small prophets.

  10. Artem, what feelings you had when you wrote a provocative question, accompanying it with such a picture. Didn’t you feel the superhero at this moment?
    To pour dirt on what is holy for others, you don’t need a lot of mind, remember Pussy Wright. They earn a lot, I think, but that’s all.
    If you were really worried about the question, then you would ask it delicately, and … read more

  11. The most successful PR and business project in the history of mankind. He brought more money than all the drug trafficking, all show business, the entire sex services market combined. Moreover, in the complete absence of actual goods or services. And this is based on this – not even a stupefying powder, and not a hamburger with a french frise potato, and not boobs, but a badly invented fairy tale about parthenogenesis at … Read more

  12. Jesus Christ was three years as the king of the then empire, the capital was at that time in Turkey. At the same time, he was a great scientist, awakened by a person for his time very progressive, he did a lot for his 33 years. I have never been a tramp and a carpenter, although it may have a carpentry.
    He comes from Rus’, lived from 1152 to 1185. Up to 30 years old was Prince Vladimir … Read more

  13. For me, “Jesus Christ” is a very convenient tool for my own movement along my own path. Only in my opinion and only mine, only for me. And everyone as he understands for himself, it is never my concern. The idea called “Jesus Christ” and means to me: do it only by yourself – this is both your only destiny, and the best way to … read more

  14. Jesus Christ is the most righteous of people in that part of the world in which he distributed his teaching, treated people. The “Son of God” may have a figurative meaning. The best of the mortals in that part of the world (since other peoples had their own Messiahs), awarded to be called God’s Son. Having finished his path by the martyrdom on Calvary Jesus, who was still mortal, like everyone else … Read more

  15. This is a blasphemous picture, but it will not be shed to you, it turns out you are far from God, since you publish this! There was nothing ridiculous in the life of Jesus of Christ God! His whole life – for the sake of us, how much Jesus gave us – it is simply impossible to overestimate, duck why I ask you, not at least a bit of respect for the person who saved all of us! Why be so angry and … read more

  16. Fictional character. The Jesus, which knows the world described in the Bible, is just a fictional character in a religious myth. Whether the prototype of Jesus was or not, no one knows. But even if he was, he would be very different from the Jesus that is represented in the Bible. So the biblical Jesus is a fairy -tale hero, nothing more.

How wide is the border between good and evil, can the acts be neither good, but also not evil at the same time?
