Infinite God at the Core of Finite Christ Jesus
It is amazing that the rather simple life and teaching of Christ Jesus led to a great amount of religious work, operations, and studies.
It is true that Christ Jesus acted and preached in the extension of Judaism, but followers, Christian priests, scholars, etc. developed the new religion Christianity on a different basis from Judaism, producing various religious contents. How could they enrich Christianity that started from the rather simple life and teaching of Christ Jesus?
The key to comprehending Christ Jesus and His words and deeds is God rather than Judaism. The only sure thing about Christ Jesus is that He had stronger linkage with God than anybody. When thinking about His words, people would finally face wisdom and power of God. When analyzing the life of Christ Jesus, people would finally face intention and plans of God.
It might be possible that other men than Christ Jesus act and speak like Christ Jesus and even perform miracles like Christ Jesus did, but if they have no linkage to God as strong as Christ Jesus', no new religion comparable to Christianity should come to exist. They might even show love to the poor and the weak like Christ Jesus, but if they have no linkage to God as strong as Christ Jesus', no new religion comparable to Christianity should come to exist.
So, it is God that made Christ Jesus succeed in establishing Christianity. As there was God at the core of life, deeds, and words of Christ Jesus, that rather simple life and teaching of Christ Jesus could lead to establishment of contents-rich Christianity.
God is infinite. It is almost impossible for men to perceive Him. So, God used a finite man so that men could easily perceive him. God is covering the whole university. Men cannot satisfactorily comprehend Him. But, Christ Jesus was a finite man so that men could easily perceive Him.
Put extremely, the only way for men to access infinite God is though the special finite man Christ Jesus. Otherwise, men should have to only stand foolishly and blindly before infinite God.
