Einstein on "luminous figure of the Nazarene" ~ quite profound!

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