Five Sutras of Jesus: Discovering the Christ the Church Forgot
Who is Jesus of Nazareth? Is he a first century rabbi, a religious zealot, a wisdom teacher, the savior of the world, the son of God, or a Jewish Bodhisattva? It is with these words that Michael Mayor, a priest in the Episcopal Church, begins a journey into the mystery of a Jesus of which few have spoken ... a Jesus that challenges the status quo of both the religious right and left ... a Jesus who is relevant to our times and who is believable even if one rejects the supernaturalism of the past. This is an Eastern Jesus who is neither Buddhist nor Hindu, but enlightens a path that is compelling in its own right. By exploring five core themes found in the life and teaching of Jesus, you will discover a Jesus very different from the popular images that abound. Moreover, in these five themes is an invitation to a lifestyle and a way of understanding reality that makes the Divine available to everyone, without having to accept any particular abstract idea of God. "Five Sutras of Jesus" is an invitation into the heart of Jesus, the heart of humanity, and the heart of the Divine.
