There is no teaching that compares to what Jesus taught.
The claim is that Jesus is the Messiah. The one.
There is no teaching that even comes close to His. What Jesus brings to the table is full disclosure.

Exodus Chapter 21, verse 20:
If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.
I will believe the bible is the word of God once we can get our slaves back...I need to beat me some humans...totally fine in Gods eye so long as I dont kill em...
-mental note, only beat my slaves enough to incap them for a couple days-

When Jesus referred to himself as the "Son of Man," he was referring to his direct descent from Adam, the first man, and thus he was The Son of God. The difference is that Adam was created, and Jesus was born of to the Virgin Mary. And if you want to argue about lineage, it makes no difference that Mary was impregnated by the Holy Spirit, and thus Joseph was not the father. Hebrews trace lineage through the father, but in this case, Mary was also from the House of David. Both could trace their lineage back to David, and if you care to trace the lineages through the Bible, you find that both go back to Adam. (I don't subscribe to the beleif that Adam and Eve were the only people on earth. But I do believe their's is the lineage of the Hebrews.)
People, lighten up. If you don't believe in God, don't get all hot under the collar. But when you die, and your an atheist, when they have your funeral, you'll be all dressed up with no place to go.
