Jesus Christ- Great Visionary, epitome of humaneness
Christmas has arrived. This festival, celebrated the world over is birthday of Jesus Christ. He is the human epitome of two Himalayan traits of humanity i.e. compassion and self-sacrifice.
Like Rama, Krishna and Buddha, in other countries too, many great personalities are there. But in any epoch great men are few and all of them are worthy of worship. But after knowing Jesus through Bible one comes to know what truth is.
Jesus viewed the entire human kind as two classes. One the Philistines and plebeians the other. That means the rich and the poor, oppressors and the oppressed. Jesus declared that only the oppressed shall have the right to enter heaven the oppressors shall not have the same. He says” poor man can enter the gates of heaven and a rich man cannot. A camel can pass through the eye of an needle but a rich man cannot enter heaven.”
Jesus is the first protagonist of the poor. He detested the rich. Thus Jesus is the first great visionary in recorded history of the mankind to have seen this ultimate truth hidden in the inner most labyrinths of human society. For several reasons this truth was not realized by others. Only the day when we face this cruel truth and smash it to smithereens, classless society would dawn and in such an exploitation-free and egalitarian society heaven would be available to one and all.
Thus Lord Jesus is Marx born 18,19, centuries before Marx. The Great Latin poet Virgil is described as a Christian even before (100 years) the advent of Jesus Christ.
There are great men galore in history of the mankind. But no one got vision of this truth. Only Jesus is blessed with this great vision. And he dedicated his entire life to translate this great vision into reality. Eventually he had to lay down his life at the altar of this very vision. For this very vision he was crucified. If all the great men in the human history are mountains,Lord Jesus is Mount Everest among them. I prostrate to him and touch his divine feet with my forehead.
