The person of Jesus was a mystery for his contemporaneousness, his person, his teachings, his way of living. Nothing has changed, He continues to be someone whom no one can remain indifferent.

There have been many years since I first heard about Jesus. Today when I write this, I am personally still amazed by Him, because of the progressive teachings for his time and his deep thoughts. I am still touched by his commitment to live according to his words, and for the incomparable kindness towards those who make mistakes.

I believe that the greatness of Jesus is the unity between his teachings and his authority; authority given not just by the power of making miracles, but for the authority that gives the concordance between words and deeds. These things that are more and more difficult to see.

Some of the people that we meet are great teachers but many fail in connection with their life. T

The authority of Jesus is coming from the way He talks. All his followers are not followers of him for the miracles, but are convinced of everything He says. Specially his authority is to serve. Authority exists for service. Jesus says this of those in authority: The greatest among you must be your servant. In other words, those who have authority are to serve those under them, not “lord it over them.” Jesus says elsewhere, You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom formany. (Mk 10:42ff).

Finally, we are called also by Him to be his voice in this world, a world with the power of authority, given by the convictions of the things we believe.
