Angel Luzabout this book: As foretold by the prophets before him, Jesus made the blind to see and the deaf to hear. He healed all manner of diseases and ailments. He walked on water and calmed storms. He changed water and turned into fine wine. He cast out evil spirits and they even meekly obeyed him. Further, he saved many from the clutches of certain death. And finally, he raised even the dead back to life.
We have heard it all so many times. Millions know him, speak highly of him, love him and many worship him as God. People have debated whether he is a true historical figure or a fiction created to ensnare the masses. They argue no end to prove he is God or that he is merely a man. So many trivial disagreements resulting in so many denominations of the faith.
We've focused on the person, who he is and what he has done, but we missed what is most important. Have we really understood what he was trying so hard to tell us? Sadly not. His teachings have been misquoted, mistranslated, misinterpreted, misunderstood, corrupted and degraded. No one now knows for sure what he really said or meant.
Which is more important – the letter or the postman who delivers the mail, the message or the messenger? God sent Jesus to deliver His message? So what is the message?
He tells us, "Love your enemies. Do good to them that hate you. Don't resist evil. Turn your other cheek. The greatest among you is the servant of all. Every man is a fool who is rich in the things of this world, but not in the things of heaven."
He tells those who believe that they are already saved, "Not everyone who calls me Lord can enter Heaven, but only those who do the will of my Father in Heaven."
In the face of the world's ills, he asserts "Wars must come. The poor will always be with you," all the while reassuring us that there is a valid reason for everything that happens.
And in spite of our grievous faults and incapacities, he maintains, "All that I have done, you, too, can do. All that I am, you, too, can be. You must, you will be perfect."
How can all this be true?
Before he left, he promised us, "I have used proverbs to tell you these things, but the time is coming when the truth shall not be so veiled and I will speak to you plainly."
Now finally, the rational bases behind his spiritual teachings can be revealed. Now, you can begin to really understand for the first time. The Message is made plain.
