Instinctively we do not class Him with others.
When one reads His name in a list beginning with Confucius
and ending with Goethe we feel it is an offence
less against orthodoxy than against decency.
Jesus is not one of the group of the world's great.
Talk about Alexander the Great and
Charles the Great and Napoleon the Great, if you will...
Jesus is apart. He is not the Great;
He is the Only.
He is simply Jesus.
--P. Carnegie Simpson
If Shakespeare were to come into the room we
would all rise up to greet him, but if Jesus Christ were to enter
we would fall on our knees and seek to kiss
the hem of His garment.
