    I once preached a ser) themon on the question, "Who do you say I am?" And I do agree with Peter's answer, "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God."

    I went on to say, however, that we need to be careful about thinking that we absolutely know what this means! After all, people thought he was like Elijah, or one of the prophets and so on. On the other hand, when Jesus said he was going to have to die, Peter figured Jesus was wrong, and according to Jesus acted as the Satan in that situation, because he did not have in mind the things of God.

    Because Jesus is the Christ, God's Son, God made flesh, and (quite frankly) the most beautiful Man I have ever met, I am glad to affirm him and love him--but that doesn't mean I will always have the best idea of who he is or how he should act. So when Christians ask, "What think ye of Christ?" there needs to be a deep humility: Jesus alone chooses his friends.

    Christ is a fictional character with solar god attributes.

      Even extremely skeptical mainstream historians who do not affirm Christian theology are willing to grant the existence of Jesus of Nazareth. The debate about "solar god attributes" an interesting one, but the first part of your statement is false.

    I don't really think about him very much to be honest. I'm fairly sure I believe that he wasn't the son of God, but I know there's quite a lot of evidence to suggest that a man kind of fitting his description existed all those years ago, and I'm sure he was a good guy. I think the 'miracles' he performed were probably a lot less like magic tricks (walking on water and the like) and a lot more like getting enemies to get along or giving food to the poor. I think the things he did have probably been exaggerated in the art of good story-telling and as an attempt to get people to do good things. Obviously that's just my opinion, and I would want in no way to force it on others, and I am completely respectful of the opinions of others. I think there's no way to prove it so I think it's a great topic to discuss but a silly one to argue about.

    I actually read a blurb of a book whilst in a book shop today and I thought I'd share part of it here because it also kind of answers your question, (I hope you don't mind!) The book is called the Liar's Gospel by Naomi Alderman and it really made me go 'oooh, controversial!' haha

    This is the story of a Jewish man, Yehoshuah, who wandered Roman-occupied Judea giving sermons and healing the sick. Now, a year after his death, four people tell their stories. His mother alternates between grief and rage while trouble brews between her village and the occupying soldiers. Iehuda, who was once Yehoshuah’s friend, recalls how he came to lose his faith and find a place among the Romans. Caiaphas, the High Priest at the great Temple in Jerusalem, tries to hold the peace between Rome and Judea. Bar-avo, a rebel and a murderer, strives to bring the peace tumbling down.

    And in the midst of all of that, one inconsequential preacher died. And either something miraculous happened, or someone lied.

      Thanks for the book title! Sounds absolutely fascinating! Some scholars believe that the "nature stories" had more to do with explaining who Jesus was to the early Christians than with a historical claim, "This event actually happened."
