Einstein on Jesus

Einstein on Jesus

"As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene....No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.
Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrase-mongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot."

from "What Life Means to Einstein," The Saturday Evening Post, October 26, 1929

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) Physicist and Professor, Princeton University
