Editor’s note: This initially ran in the Optic on Dec. 24, 2012:
Years ago, someone wrote an essay that carried a Christian message, but much more. It’s a testament to the life of a single man, Jesus of Nazareth, whose message grew to have a deep and lasting impact upon the entire world. We have reprinted it below. Regardless of your beliefs, we hope you will agree that it speaks to the spirit of Christmas day, when love and life are celebrated.
