Jesus Christ is a figure of perennial interest in the world scene. His followers proclaim his significance for their lives, while others are intrigued with his teaching and attraction to so many of the religious. But who exactly was Jesus? Does he live on among us, as his followers claim? Did he set out to start a new religion, or was he a misunderstood religious genius? Does it make sense to speak of Jesus today as “Saviour of the World”? With the emergence of new evolutionary paradigms, do we need radically new ways to understand his person and his work? These are some of the questions that this series seeks to address.
