Jesus impact on our world is highly unlikely widely inescapable largely unknown and decidedly double edged It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life it is inescapable because of the range of impact it is unknown because history doesn t connect dots and it is doubled edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc often in his name He is history s most familiar figure yet he is the man no one knows His impact on the world is immense and non accidental From the Dark Ages to Post Modernity he is the Man who won t go away And yet you can miss him in historical lists for many reasons maybe the most obvious being the way he lived his life He did not loudly and demonstrably defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader He did not lay out a case that history would judge his brand of belief superior in all future books His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him He made history by starting in a humble place in a spirit of love and acceptance and allowing each person space to respond His vision of life continues to haunt and challenge humanity His influence has swept over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art science government medicine and education he has taught humans about dignity compassion forgiveness and hope
