In terms of how he told people to lead their lives? Incredibly irresponsible. He taught people to give no thought for tomorrow and to give away all their earthly possessions and live in poverty. His entire philosophy was based on the idea that the world would be ending very soon. Since it didn’t – and it won’t – his ideas are fatuous at best.

In terms of morality? Unoriginal.

I’m not even sure that Jesus existed as a person – the gospels weren’t written until 30 years after his (alleged) death, and they bear considerable likeness to other messianic stories.

He is portrayed as a bit of a non-conformist in the gospels, and I think that causing people to think about established norms is a good thing for a teacher to do.
