There have been many spiritual teachers throughout history, many holy men, prophets, and messengers.
But in Jesus there was a breakthrough.
Only Jesus says that to love God and love your neighbor is the whole of the law.
And only Jesus says to turn the other cheek and love your enemies.
This is the first glimpse of the transcendent God.
A God who is without retribution.
A loving Father.
A God who is all Life, Light, and Love.
So in Jesus there is a breakthrough in humankind's understanding of God.
And we are still struggling to understand it today.
