When we think of the life of Jesus Christ our main source is the Bible This great literary work does an excellent job of portraying Him as Gods chosen Messiah He is very accepting of His job and is open to the suffering He endures throughout His life and during His death Jesus has always been the pious chaste man that people have come to know ever since the Bible was written He always resisted temptation never feared evil and never once doubted that God was not His father nor did He ever sin Looking at Jesus life through the viewpoint of the Bible is in many ways incorrect In the Bible Jesus is God made human not just human alone Because of His divinity He easily avoids all the maladies of the world Near the end of His life He only has one moment of self-doubt This moment comes while He is on the cross This glimpse of Jesus humanity though relieving to the reader does not fully reveal His character to us In Nikos Kazantzakis The Last Temptation of Christ the character of Jesus Christ is revealed to us as not God as human but human as human Jesus journey to Golgotha was much more difficult than we thought Not just that final journey where He was humiliated and tortured in front of the people He loved so dearly but the journey of his whole life from beginning to end It began from the moment He was born Kazantzakis brilliantly reveals Jesus to us in a new light by doing something so heretical and controversial He does something that has never been conceived by any other man on the face of this Earth This evil deed this sacrilegious act that he performs is the humanization of Jesus the Christ He does this by implementing the emotion of fear within Him Fear is a characteristic that all humans have Jesus according to the Bible
