Jesus of Nazareth

A Person Like Us?

By Roger Lenaers

Contributions by: Dan Farrelly

Born of a virgin, crucified under Pontius Pilate, died and was buried, and rose again on the third day - this, the Church's conception of Jesus, is based on mystical and mythological thinking. But Jesus is not a citizen of another world. He is not an alien who dwelt amongst us for a short time. He is no omniscient and almighty miracle worker, and He is not an only-begotten Son of God. Was Jesus a person like us? Roger Lenaers is a Flemish theologian and classical scholar, and a member of the Jesuit Order. For almost half a century he has been concerned with developments within the Christian faith. He looks at the gospels from a modern angle. He investigates the issues conscientiously and opens up a new way in which the modern Christian can confidently be a believer. [Subject: Christianity, Religious Studies]
