A discussion of the lives of Jesus and Socrates through comparative analysis which explains the parallels of their teaching techniques and philosophies on life.
The author came under the spell of Socrates at an early age. When she reflected upon the care of the soul and quickening of the spirit that are tenets of Socratic teaching, she became aware of the connections between the teachings of Socrates and Jesus. Socrates taught that the highest purpose of the human being was to care for one’s soul and to be a lover of wisdom, and by doing so we give birth to intellectual children (ideas) which will become immortal.
Follow the author as she points to the many similarities between Socrates and Jesus Christ, including the fact that both men never wrote anything down but had a profound effect on their followers — their spiritual influence remains powerful today.
