  • Buddhists and Muslims believe him to have been a prophet...if I recall correctly.

    I believe he was a good man trying to make good changes in a corrupt world and it ended badly for him cuz the powers that were wanted to set an example of what happens when you "rebel" against them.

  • Most Hindus recognize and revere the Christ as a prophet/avatar of God. However, he is not viewed as our "savior" who died for our "Sins" (which for us is our bad karma we really do not believe in "sin" in the same sense that most Christians do). He was simply one of many prophets/avatars of God who have walked among man during different periods of human history. These prophets/avatars have come to man during times of extreme strife, times when the masses suffered unjustly, and when man needed another guide/teacher in regards to divinity.

    This is also pretty much my personal view. The Christ was one of many, and there is still 1 more to come (incarnation of Vishnu at the end of Kali-Yuga). He was a prophet of God, and I respect him as such. He is not God, he is not the Son of God, he was an enlightened being much like Prince Siddhartha and others before him.

  • Buddhists, Hindus, Baha'i, Muslims, maybe others I'm forgetting...

    I think he was likely a wise, enlightened, compassionate MAN. I think many of his teachings parallel very well with other teachings around the world, but the message has been changed from his original intentions IMO.

  • Christ as the Son of God - none. That is unique to Christianity. Most of the main world religions recognize that Jesus existed and was a moral teacher.

  • I do not believe a person named Jesus, as the son of a deity, actually existed... now, I will not say that a man named Jesus, who traveled as a teacher did not exist.. but, as a prophet or deity.. no.

  • I believe in Jesus like I believe in King Arthur:

    MAYBE such a flesh-and-blood human man existed...maybe he did not. Not important. What IS important is all the myths, legends, stories, and tales written about him and the lessons we can learn from them.

  • My view of Jesus is that He is awsome. He is my hope and my refuge and my calm in the storm. He loves me and I love Him. I thank Him for all that He does for me .. because I am definately very blessed!!
