Never before Jesus was there a completely noble concept of God
PARADIGM—NATURE OF JESUS
One should consider the possibility that we are suffering from a race wide psychological problem from buying into a fundamentally wrong concept of God, a wrong paradigm or wineskin if you will. In this 'old' paradigm we are all programmed for failure with defeatist sentiments. We are going to wait a long time if we are looking for God to initiate any further rapprochement. Jesus already did that and his last words were, “It is finished.”
Jesus was a wholly real human being who developed from a two-celled zygote in a natural biological way just like any other man. He was a real baby, who inherited his genes and chromosomes from Mary and her shady ancestors, who messed and fussed and grabbed. We (humanity thru Mary and Joseph) took care of him, nursed him, cleaned him, cuddled him, comforted him, raised him. He was a real human child who didn't always want to eat all of his food or go to bed on time, and who played the common games with other children. He was a real human teenager who tested some limits, went through puberty and developed his sexuality. He was a real human male who as a worker (carpenter or builder?) made mistakes and hit his thumb with the hammer, and didn't like it. As a man—even after his wilderness experience—He got angry, irritated, frustrated and identified people with uncomplimentary labels (disciples—puny-faiths, Peter—adversary, King Herod—old fox, Pharisees—whitewashed sepulchres, brood of vipers, sons of the devil, etc.).
As a growing child Jesus developed his self-identity as a male human through a natural psychological process based on identifying with the United Serving Entity (USE), because he did not have a natural fleshly father. By the age of 12 (temple experience) he knew who he was. By the age of 33 (wilderness experience) he understood all spiritual issues including his purpose and destiny and was completely unified (committed) in purpose, values and desires with his heavenly father, the unfallen human beings in the universe that comprise the USE. Through this natural psychological process he developed into the same noble human as he was before he stopped existing and was incarnated as a two-celled zygote.
At the age of approximately 33 years it was verified that Jesus not only knew who he was but what his purpose and destiny were, and that he was committed to this common purpose in unity with his father, for, according to some Gospel accounts, he was tested on the three facets of worship. Upon passing these tests for himself and all humanity once and for all he entered his "Kingship of the heavens" and now had power and authority over the physical realm. This means that he was living free indeed within his passion and purpose, free from and free to, never in any danger, never too hot or cold unless he willed it, never tired or hungry or thirsty unless he willed it, not concerned with shelter or money or health or aging or a retirement fund. This means that his only concern or frustration was with the rotten human misperception of the USE, and the spiritual blindness of humanity. He was not "controlled" by any agency, but by his own concept of reality and the common purpose with his father; all of which produced his own feelings, desires, and therefore behavior.
Jesus is "king" or chief of the servants, a king in the realm of co-operation and supremacy through equality. He said that he "came to serve not to be served", and he did NOT change his character or posture after he was resurrected and went away. When he entered Jerusalem with the hosannas* and palm fronds waving, with people making him an ordinary king, he did it, among other reasons, to show that he had the power and authority to be such a king if he wanted to be. So not wanting to be, he got off his ass, looked around, and immediately abdicated such a ridiculous kingship/kingdom.
* The Hebrew word "hosanna" is not a term of praise, but a demand that should be translated "Save us now!" This is one of the more devious translation omissions that leads to such a widespread yet foolish conception of his character and mission.
