Excerpt from Teachings of the Lord Jesus
The nineteenth century was the century of the Son of man. In no other hundred years since the apostolic era has the unique figure of Jesus of Nazareth drawn to itself so many eyes or engaged so profound study. To recover the historical surround ings of his life, to set him in the midst of the social and religious ideas of his time, to discover his thoughts of himself and of his mission, to interpret his deeds and words, to penetrate the mystery of his person, to estimate him as a force in humanity, to this the world's best thought and scholarship for two generations and more have been consecrated. The result is that we have found anew the Man Jesus, who is to us now almost as he was to those who saw his face and heard his voice.
