Absolute power in service to absolute love.

"I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven"  Matthew 18:3 

A few ways some people have seen Jesus, either as an historical figure or a divine being:

Pasternak: (from Doctor Zhivago)
This ancient world ended with Rome, because of over population.
Rome was a flea market of borrowed gods and conquered peoples, a bargain basement on two floors: earth and heaven, a mass of filth convoluted in a triple knot as in an intestinal obstruction. Dacians, Herulians, Sythians, Samaratians, Hyperborians, heavy wheels without spokes, eyes sunk in fat, sodomy, double chins, illiterate emperors, fish fed on the flesh of learned slaves. There were more people in the world than there have been since, all crammed into the passages of the Coliseum, and all wretched.

And then, into this tasteless heap of gold and marble, He came, light and clothed in an aura, emphatically human, deliberately provincial, Galilean, and at that moment gods and nations ceased to be and man came into being--man the carpenter, man the plowman, man the shepherd with his flock of sheep at sunset, man who does not sound in the least proud, man thankfully celebrated in all the cradle songs of mothers and in all the picture galleries the world over.

Garry Wills (Roman Catholic): What Jesus said

Reza Aslan (Converted Muslim): Jesus of Nazareth vs Jesus the Christ

Dostoyevsky: Grand Inquisitor

Orthodox: uncreated of the uncreated father

Protestant: (above)

Mormon: created, first born of an anthropomorphic father
