A Parallel of Mandela and Jesus

Just a thought …

Nelson Mandela and Jesus both served a humanitarian path.  In order to overcome the oppression in South Africa, Nelson Mandela learned the language of his enemies in order to start growing connections with them.  Jesus’ enemy was the corrupt religious system.  In ‘learning the language’ of the prophesies, Jesus was able to overthrow the corrupt practices of the religion of the time by connecting himself with the current understandings and bringing more humanitarian understandings into the mix.

This is, of course, under the presumption that Jesus is not truly the son of God.

Food for thought.
