"Jesus was more than 'Jesus of Nazareth', more than any other man who ever lived on earth. He was more than man, as we understand that appellation in its everyday use, because there came into His manhood a factor to which most men are strangers.
This factor was the Christ consciousness. The unfoldment of this consciousness by Jesus makes him God incarnate, because Christ is the Mind of God individualized. We cannot separate Jesus Christ from God or tell where man leaves off and God begins in Him.
To say that we are men as Jesus was a man is not exactly true, because He had dropped that personal consciousness by which we separate ourselves from our true God-self. Jesus became consciously one with the absolute principle of Being. He proved in His resurrection and ascension that He had no consciousness separate from that of Being; therefore He was this Being to all intent and purpose. Yet He attained no more than what is expected of every one of us."
