Many books that were written around 2000 years ago pretty much agree that there was actually a Jesus of Nazareth. He was reported to have done incredible things, even one report of him raising the dead, and another that tells of him raising himself from the dead. There was much dispute about this even then, but most open-minded people will usually admit that there were some unusual activities in Jerusalem around the time Jesus was supposed to have been here and that life on planet earth changed dramatically after his brief time in the world. There were stories found in Rome reporting many things that collaborates the New Testaments’ Jesus Christ. The question arises when some, including Paul, formally Saul, claimed that Jesus was indeed the ONLY SON OF GOD. Others would point out that Jesus himself said “you are all gods” (notice the small g in gods.) I am not one who believes that I must shove my interpretation of who Jesus was down everyone else’s throats, but I do believe that he was a very important being, worthy of study. Don’t decide who Jesus was by my words, or anyone else’s. People have their on agendas, as do churches, and institutions. Study his words, study other words, and listen to your heart. Maybe you can tell me what is the true Christ; I promise to listen to you and consider your words.
My favorite quote from the bible was from a recently healed blind man, when asked who is this Jesus Christ who had healed him. He simply said, “I know not who he was, I just know that once I was blind, but now I see.” Maybe it is that simple.

A guy who caused a lot of problems saying things he shouldn't have. Living example of why you should keep your mouth shut, in other words, the reason his followers contradict themselves.
Jesus Christ, who shit on my porch?

His real name was Yeshua of Nazareth, the name Joshua being the closest translation into English. He was given the title "christ" by his followers. Christ is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word "messiah", which in turn means "annointed one". This was assigned to him because he was thought by his followers to be a messiah sent by God to bring about the "Kingdom of God"--the independent Jewish state. He was one of many military messiahs at the time who fought against the Roman occupation of Judea and failed. Most likely born of an affair between a Roman soldier and a Jewish woman and put to death for inciting a riot. According to the gospels, he attacked licensed business men at the temple during Passover with a whip. These business men were changing the currency for Jews that were traveling from other parts of the Empire so that they could buy sacrifices and fulfill their religious obligations. This terrorist assault was probably fueled by Jewish upset with a tax the Romans had placed on the temple that went to the construction of public facilities in Judea--such as the aqueduct and the roads. The Roman soldiers were at red alert during Passover, when Jews from all over the Empire pilgrimaged to the Jewish temple in Judea, as assaults such as this were likely to invoke a riot that would get many innocent people killed. The penalty for this was, quite reasonably, death by crucifixion--one was whipped, hung naked on a cross by the road to humiliate one and so others would see what would happen if they tried to invoke a riot, and denied a Jewish burial--having one's body thrown to dogs and wild animals to rip apart and devour totally. Contrary to popular belief, Jesus never claimed to be God. The term "Son of God" was used by many to refer to individuals that had a special covenant with God. The term "Son of Man" was an idiomatic and common Jewish expression at the time that essential meant "I" or "this man" and was the equivalent of saying "my/his father's son." The act of forgiving others their sins was performed by rabbis, who were no more asserting themselves to be God than Catholic priests are during Confession. If people were upset at him doing this, it was because he was asserting that he had the authority of a rabbi, though he had not been approved by the temple. More radical claims about his divinity are found in John, but this was the last of the gospels, and if you put the works of the Bible in the order they were written (Note: this is different than the order in which they are presented in the Bible. Paul's works were written first, then Mark, then Matthew, then Luke, then John) you can actually see the story evolving--with each step new miracles are added and old miracles are made more miraculous and the claims about Jesus become bolder. This is the general way in which tall tales work. Jesus's alleged powers were derived from Pagan God-Men such as Mythra and Horus. The story of Jesus's life as described in the Bible shares 200 points of similarity with the story of Horus's life--and Horus's story was formed and circulated hundreds of years before Jesus was allegedly born. The alleged teachings of Jesus closely match those of the famous Jewish religious leader Hillel the Elder who lived one or two generations before Jesus was born. After Jesus's execution his followers continued in his tradition, lead by his brother James, until they were destroyed along with other rebel groups and the Jewish Temple in 70 CE as the Romans crushed the Jewish rebellion. The view of Jesus as a spiritual redeemer was made possible after the more spiritual (as opposed to militant) and universal (as opposed to Jewish) version of Christianity preached by Paul (who never met the pre-crucifixion Jesus but claimed to have received a vision of Jesus resurrected), and opposed by James and Jesus’s followers, was all that remained. The war with the Romans that left the Jewish (and true) Christians destroyed allowed the seeds that Paul had planted to take root and take over. A militant messiah was no longer practical, so a peaceful messiah was created to appease the Romans and gain influence over them economically and culturally.
Jesus Christ--the religion based on him taught the world despair and taught life to hate itself.

A sexual act. While having missionary sex, a man kisses a women's neck so she tilts her head. Then he holds her arms out the side and pulls out. Then he penetrates her belly button. This leaves her in state of shock arms to the side, stomach bleeding like Jesus on the cross.
I was having sex with a nun and she asked what it would be like to meet God? I said I don't know but I showed her Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is a man who is the fufillment of over 400 prophecies in the Pentauch antr the rest of the Torah. Interestingly enough, the only Bible Jesus ever read was the Torah, he is even seen stanting in the Synagogue at Nazereth reading Isaiah 61.
Jesus Christ is our Promised messiah!
