I wonder if Christ will ever be understood.

For it’s not just the priests and nuns: Christ Himself comes across as nasty, if you read the Script — judgemental, strict, confrontational.
And when people dishonour his Father’s house — perfectly nice people for all we know, just trying to make a living — he becomes downright violent. Fashions a whip, turns over their stalls. No table manners at all. Garish talk about body and blood. Nice & nasty : Essays in Idleness

Your Say

Well Jesus did have a penchant for saying really odd and disturbing things any time he got a big crowd, as if he was not interested in celebrity, and wanted only truth.

Clever, cute. Why not mention that Jesus was a Jew, medium height, Semitic features, walked everywhere He went; wore the same clothing year 'round, no such thing as showers, last time He was Immersed was when John the Baptist baptized Him? He had only two cheeks and when both of them were turned ...

We are only seeing Jesus the man incarnate. As such he was susceptible to all the passions of mere humans.

By that definition Chas, Jesus was much like Ghandi: A super callous, fragilistic, vexed with halitosis.

Actually it should be: A super calloused fragile mystic, vexed with halitosis.....
