Jesus came to earth bringing new information about how human life works. It surpassed anything his hearers had heard. As people oriented their lives around his teaching, it transformed them, and catalyzed a movement of love, joy and meaning that permeated the Roman Empire even as the political power tried brutally to stamp it out. We miss Jesus if we limit what he taught to religion. His teaching was uniquely liberating for all of life. It still is.
