Who is the greatest man who ever lived? A question like that could spur a long debate among scientists, humanists, business and political leaders, even religious leaders. Of course, you would expect a pastor like me to say, Jesus. 


Arguably, Jesus of Nazareth is the greatest man who ever lived. I say this emphatically, even though Jesus said John the Baptist was the greatest man born among women for the way he served (7:28). Jesus is the greatest, not only because of the way He served humanity but also because He is the perfect God-man, something even the greatest humanist must concede. 


Jesus was not God alone or man alone; He was fully human and fully divine in a unified existence.
