  • This isn't really a question you should only rely on other people to answer. Everyone has their own beliefs. You can talk to others about why they believe one way of the other but in the end this is a soul searching question for yourself. The best place to start is in books, books really allow you to form your own opinion if you read many different sources. The Resurrection or the Son of God is a good book to start with,  It gives historical data supporting the resurrection story. This is only one book, find others that give different answers and opinions and decide for yourself.

  • A cool dude preaching love, acceptance and peace within oneself. Much like Buddah and Ghandi and other such reputable folks. Overall just a man with some pretty cool ideas that changed the way people in his day thought

  • I think JEsus the human being was a great man who reached a certain level of inner peace and tranquility. I believe this inner peace was the inner light and love he talked about and told people about. I believe his ability to truly live this peace is what touched people so much by him.
    I also believe this level of spirituality within him threatened others bc so many people began listening to him. People in power don't like it when there is a voice being heard amongst the people.
    He was love and light and peace and tolerance. He lived it, breathed it, spoke it....he was it.
    I believe OTHERS put it upon him to be a "God". THat way they could be forgiven of their trespasses against their fellow human being known as Jesus.

  • He was awesome. He IS awesome still. He was not ordinary. The bible prophesiesed his birth. He performed miracles, healed people, and ressurrected people from the dead. This is part of the reason that the pharosies wanted him dead, accusing him, eye witness, it is true. His ability to resurrect people gives us hope for the future and that one day we will be reuinited with our loved ones that have passed.

  • Historically he was a very nice man promoting peace and love. Though I believe him to be the son of god it can not be proven.

  • Biblically, Jesus is the son of god. However, many believe that he is a PART of God. Like a different personality... This belief comes from the belief in the triple God head which predates Christianity by a thousand years or so...

  • In a literal sense I don't believe Jesus was the son of God, no more than I am the daughter of Gaia; in a literal sense. I think Jesus was either a rebel Rabbi or a lay preacher. I don't find him to be a prophet, nor do I find anyone to be a prophet. I find him to be a man, with failings, failures, emotions, an imperfect being. I don't see anything attributed to him in the bible to be remarkable in the spirit.

    Metaphorically, he can claim to be the son of God because he was trying his best to follow the God that he worships as if he was his own father. In some ways, to be declared the son of a God means that he is the embodiment of the deity that he is following and acknowledgement of that devotion.
