i read a really great book a few years ago called "jesus in bad company", it looked at the man from 3 different viewpoints. Was jesus truly the messiah, son of god? Was he just a revolutionary trying to overthrow the romans, or was he just a paranoid delusional who hung out with whores and thieves. I personally think that he was a great teacher whether he was real or made up, black or white or olive skinned. Good guy, great example of righteousness.
