What do you think about the way Jesus is portrayed in the different gospels?

I think Jesus is portrayed as a righteous man who has a lot of power and influence. In the Gospels Jesus is also portrayed as God. In my understanding of the Gospels I believe Jesus is portrayed as the only perfect person to ever walk on the face of the earth. I believe that Jesus is portrayed as having some prophet-like knowledge, and he never goes out of his way to explain who he is. The Gospels portray Jesus as a divine being and he becomes a model human for Christians to use as a role
How do you think the various portrayals of Jesus in the gospels compare with the common conception of Jesus

    viewpoint on religion is addressed. Religion in its historical context, and as a society, we will not have faith until today without substantial foundation. However, I believe Chapter 15 is significant because as a society we must also know what religion has to offer in the future as well as have an insight on the possibilities that might occur based on what has happened in the past. In addition, if there are any issues that could possibly occur in the future, regarding religion, that we know…
