It is my belief that the question is flawed, or at least confusing. A Christian is a follower of Christ or something that is associated with Christ by definition. Christ is Christ, why would we even contemplate if the word Christian is applicable to the person of Christ. Help me understand if you have a more philosophical intent that I am missing. I am puzzled by the question but may be missing something.
Jesus, if he existed, which I am not 100% sure about, and he was who he was as described by the bible. Then he was a Jew. There were no Christians at that time period, and in the bible, Jesus is a self defined Jew, and a teacher among them.
Living Christ said (Matthew 5:48): “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Gives advice in sermon on the mount how to be good and apply one’s talents.
Crucified Christ means we must NOT try to be good but must only BELIEVE IN Christ and that he died for our sins.
Christ was a Jew. Funny how Christians believe in Christ, but Jews don't (since of all of the requirements to be the Messiah and whatever). Anyways, I don't really see why this is a debate, as 0% of people say he was, because even Christians' precious "history book" says that he wasn't.
Christ was not a Christian. He was a Jewish man who came to fulfill God's promise and law to the Jews. The people who began to follow him after his death and resurrection were called followers of Christ, or "little Christs." These Christians spread Jesus's teachings. Jesus himself, though, was not a Christian.
He was born a Jew, lived a Jew, and died a Jew. He actually wasn't trying to create a totally new religion; he was simply reforming Judaism. All of his disciples identified themselves as Jews. His teachings were turned into a new religion called Christianity by the Apostles long after his death. So no, Christ was not a Christian; he was a Jew.
