What Separates Jesus From Every Other Teacher

Aristotle said to his disciples, “Follow my teachings.”  Socrates likewise said, “Follow my teachings.”  Buddha said to his disciples, “Follow my meditations.”  Confucius said to his disciples, “Follow my sayings.”  And Mohammed said to his disciples, “Follow my noble pillars.”

But Jesus says to his disciples, “Follow ME.”

In all the religions and philosophies of the world, a follower can follow the teachings of its founder without having a relationship with that founder.  But not so with Jesus Christ.  The teachings of Jesus cannot be separated from Jesus Himself.  Christ is still alive, and He embodies His teachings.  This is what separates Him from every teacher and moral philosopher in history…

…and then there was also that resurrection thing.
