A lot of people say to me, "Why did you kill Christ?" "I dunno... it

he didn't want to become a doctor, that's why we killed him."

Let us pardon him his hope of a vain apocalypse, and of a second coming
in great triumph upon the clouds of heaven. Perhaps these were the errors
of others rather than his own; and if it be true that he himself shared
the general illusion, what matters it, since his dream rendered him strong
against death, and sustained him in a struggle to which he might otherwise
have been unequal?
~ Ernest Renan ~
Thou has conquered, O pale Galilean.

I am pretty sure that we err in treating these sayings as paradoxes.
It would be nearer the truth to say that it is life itself which is paradoxical
and that the sayings of Jesus are simply a recognition of that fact.
