Thatï¿½s how we ought to think about Jesus. Itï¿½s usually agreed by both Christians and non Christians, even by vehement anti-Christians, that Jesus as presented in the four gospels is perfectly ideal, morally. Many of his most simple teachings (e.g., the "Golden Rule") seem brilliant, and many of the actions that seem most natural to him (e.g., seeking to forgive those who crucify him because "they know not what they do") are, at times, amazing. But we should scour the record before signing on the dotted line. (Box 1 and Box 2 give other reasons itï¿½s important to think this through.).
