At this site, Jesus is regarded as one of history's greatest spiritual and transpersonal teachers. Whether he was "God's Only Begotten Son" is not our concern. Rather, we wish to discover the reality of what he taught and did, especially those teachings that you may find useful whatever your religious orientation. In that spirit, most links listed here emphasize scholarship and avoid doctrinaire positions.
