Quarterly Quote of the Month about Jesus for this Week

“As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene . . . . No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life. Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrase-mongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot.”

                         ~Albert Einstein


  1. How true from the greatest scientific mind of modern times.

  2. Thank you, anonymous. It is always more interesting to have a wider context for quotations.


  3. Einstein insists that one can get a very sense of the presence of Jesus, just by reading some words. But then no one can equally disperse that, by another countering "word"?

    Sometimes I worry about the validity of Albert's equations; often they don't seem to work in reverse for example. Though good equations should, usually.
