There is so much that has been said about him. He has been denied to have ever walked to the earth, and yet no one has effected mankind as much as
that person. Of course I'm referring to Jesus.
I remember reading a quote made my Napoleon Bonaparte about Jesus a while ago in an old book. He said to the effect, 'I know people, and he was no
human.' Referring to the way that Jesus interacted with people, the way he was. Then Napoleon went on to make a very significant observation. He
said that after reading the gospels he came to the conclusion that no human could have invented the character of Jesus.
And I picked up a Bible and with those comments in mind re-read the gospels. You see I've read them before. Well, they're quite short really. You
could read through the book of mark in an hour perhaps. It doesn't take that long to read them. The gospels are the four books that talk about
Jesus' life on earth, viz. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Gospel means good news.
As I read the account again I started to see many things about this man of Nazareth that I never saw before. And began to understand why that astute
and extremely powerful and intelligent strategist Napoleon, who had at his command armies, and rulers, and kingdoms, made such a statement as he did
as referred to above.
Jesus was not an ordinary human. Not referring to the fact that he could perform miracles. No not talking about that. It was the way he was, the
way he dealt with people.
You see, in all my years of reading, and I have read a lot, I have come to the conclusion that I have never read a story that was made up by any human
that portrayed another human, fictitious or even real that compared to Jesus.
An example. I just finished watching a movie called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. This was a story that uses the Greek myths of gods and demigods
and puts them into a modern-day setting. Percy is really a demigod, the son of Perseus, a god. The story I thought did a good job of portraying how
the Greek gods were, uncaring of humans, drunkards, and fornicators. Percy, when he learns he is a demi-god starts to show off his powers, and stops
a war between the gods. He is cheered on, and he makes a great name for himself.
How different that from the character of Jesus. Jesus was not only of humble origins being the adopted son of a carpenter named Joseph. But he was
humble. When he was baptized at the age of 30 apparently his pre-human memory was given him as the "heavens were opened up to him."
Jesus was the son of God. The firstborn, the very first creation of his Father Jehovah. The Bible does not reveal if all of his pre-human memory was
given him, perhaps it was. Imagine what that implicated. The scripture tells us that Jesus was used by his Father to create all other things in the
universe, in heaven, and on earth. That is Jesus not only knew the laws of physics, he helped to establish them at the founding of the universe. He
not only knew how the human body functions, he was the one that put the first human body together. He was the greatest master of science that ever
walked the earth. His knowledge compared to other humans is just so vast that it is mind-boggling to even contemplate.
Yet Jesus never drew attention to himself. He, being as intelligent as he was, never talked of his own knowledge. Even when he was being tempted by
that great spirit son of God Satan, Jesus did not reply to Satan using his own knowledge (of which he must have had an abundance of.) Three times he
retorts Satan's temptations with "It is written" and goes on to quote his Father's word as found in the law to Moses. He never spoke of his own
initiative. In fact he himself said, : “When once you have lifted up the Son of man, then will know that I am [he], and that I do nothing of my own
initiative; but just as the Father taught me I speak these things."1
