JESUS CHRIST-A GREAT MORAL TEACHER OF THE WORLD
Do you know about the tortures to the Jesus Christ, who believes oneness of God and also had a desire to establish "The Kingdom of God"? Have you ever met somebody who is having with such magnetic personalities for which that they are always the center of attention? Possibly, either their personality or intelligence,but something about them is enigmatic,which is beyon our imagination. Now you think, what was happened before two thousand years ago with Jesus Christ. Jesus’ greatness was obvious to all those who saw and heard about him. But, whereas most great people simply fade into history books, Jesus of Nazareth is still the focus of numerous books and media controversy. As an unheralded carpenter from an remote village in Israel, Jesus made claims that, if true, have profound implications on our lives. According to Jesus, you and I are special, part of a grand cosmic scheme, with him as the center of it all. It was primarily Jesus outrageous claims that caused him to be viewed as a crackpot by both the Roman authorities and the Jewish hierarchy. Although he was an outsider with no credentials or political powerbase, within three years, Jesus changed the world for the next 20 centuries. Other moral and religious leaders have left an impact,but nothing like that unknown carpenter from Nazareth.
What was it about Jesus Christ that made the difference? Was he merely a great man, or something more? These questions get to the heart of who Jesus really was! Some believe he was merely a great moral teacher; others believe he was simply the leader of the world’s greatest religion. But many believe something far more. Christians believe that God has actually visited us in human form. And they believe the evidence backs that up. So who is the real Jesus? Let’s take a closer look. As we take a deeper look at the world’s most controversial person, we begin by asking, could Jesus have been merely a great moral teacher? Almost all scholars acknowledge that Jesus was a great moral teacher. In fact, his brilliant insight into human morality is an accomplishment, recognized even by those of other religions. In his book Jesus of Nazareth, Jewish scholar Joseph wrote, “It is universally admitted,that Christ taught the purest and sublimes ethics, which throws the moral precepts and maxims of the wisest men of antiquity far into the shade. Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount has been called the most superlative teaching of human ethics ever uttered by an individual. In fact, much of what we know today as “equal rights” actually is the result of Jesus’ teaching.
History speaks that,he lived and struggled for ‘equal rights’ ‘Some have tried to separate Jesus’ teaching on ethics from his claims about himself, believing that he was simply a great man who taught lofty moral principles. This was the approach of one of America’s Founding Fathers. President Thomas Jefferson, ever the enlightened rationalist, sat down in the White House with two identical copies of the " New Testament", a straight-edge razor, and a sheaf of octavo-size paper. Over the course of a few nights, he made quick work of cutting and pasting his own Bible, a slim volume he called “The Philosophy of Jesus of Nazareth.” After slicing away every passage that suggested Jesus’ divine nature, Jefferson had a Jesus who was no more and no less than a good, ethical guide.

Somebody is guilty of Plagiarism. It could hardly be the great and moral Mr. Tiadi, who strongly and insistently affirms that he is an upright man, a man of truth, and who confesses himself to be educated as a lawyer (Bachelor of Law or LLB).
Well, whoever is guilty of plagiarism should be punished.
