He walked the Earth 2,000 years ago, yet the icon of Jesus Christ continues to be the most influential person in the world today. Jesus was a man, a flesh and blood human being, one among us. But there's something that makes him stand apart. He gives sight to the blind, He calms fierce storms with a mere word, He feeds 5,000 people with a handful of food, He raises a man from the dead and above all He raises himself from being dead.
The life of Jesus Christ depicts that he is both human as well as God. He has himself gone through the whole of human experience, from the trivial irritations to the worst horrors of pain and humiliation, defeat, despair and death. Jesus is a great religious teacher and a compassionate lover of sinners, a man who strives for peace and one who's tough on injustice, someone who understand humans better than anyone; the greatest man who ever lived, the great God who came to us.
Jesus Christ message was revolutionizing; his words simple, yet profound. And his words provoked either happy acceptance or violent rejection. Jesus Christ gave the message of love, mercy and compassion to the entire mankind. No other great leader has inspired so many positive changes in the lives of his followers. People who encounter the risen Christ are totally transformed. To uphold their faith, they do not hesitate to face hardship, persecution and even death. Many consecrate their lives to serving others, disregarding their own needs and desires.
