Jesus of Nazareth: A Person Like Us? Born of a virgin, crucified under Pontius Pilate, died and was buried, and rose again on the third day   this, the Church's conception of Jesus, is based on mystical and mythological thinking. But Jesus is not a citizen of another world, he is not an alien who dwelt amongst us for a short time. He is no omniscient and almighty miracle worker. And he is not an only begotten Son of God. The author looks at the gospels from a modern angle. Was Jesus a person like us? He investigates these issues conscientiously and opens up a new way in which the modern Christian, despite everything, can confidently be a believer.
