Be it far from me to truly, and fully know Jesus’s teachings faithfully. I would like to speculate for a moment, for those amongst us that would often ask, “What would Jesus do” when given a life challenge, or situation that seems difficult.
Well, let’s look at this perspective from a “negative space” angle (borrowing a term/concept from Artistic pursuits for a moment).
From what little I honestly know of his creed, I will state, that I could possibly infer several factors that Jesus would likely adhere to (if you’re willing to suspend my lack of formal credentials as a imposition to belief). Let us say from an obvious example that Jesus would distrust betrayal from those deemed friends. Unless he learned/realized that such infliction of hardship is within a “master-plan” from a Holy Father/Mother (Whatever terminology one would use for a “Holy Lord” *(Lord being in this case non-gendered, as touchy as it is nowadays)).
Should a betrayal as Judas Isacroit(?) wrought be forgiven? It is not my place to say, only Jesus and God would know the full, and proper response to that. Be that as it may, I’d like to think that Jesus would offer a chance of redemption (Christian core belief).
I don’t think he’d voluntarily submit to needless suffering, suffice to say, because that is legitimately stupid, and pointless.
There’s a highly good chance he’d love everyone he could in whatever little way that he could do so to brighten their day, at that junction in time, so there’s that.
There’s also a strong chance that he may be lenient towards deviancy because well, honestly he was one of a lineage of deviants *(Moses fled from Egypt…deviant inference made).
There may also be a chance, really off hand, that he may attempt to make reparations to those that were previously unjustly wronged, and encourage a strong sense of Justice. The Christian God is reknown for that. A sense of mutable Justice. Meaning Justice is an evolving thing, we are growing from our lessons in Life, and through God’s education.
*(Note that’s a really strong reason to believe in Christianity, for The God, is understanding, and will enact what is necessary to create a sense of Justice….including, but not always limited to his own son’s Sacrifice).
As far as I can tell, Christianity is a Growing, and Living Faith which is highly admirable.
At this point I must disclose that I feel more inline with a reformed Baltic Faith of some form (thus I may be a “Neo-Pagan” in some way, but I’m still searching…as far as that True Faith goes). The reasoning being that I may, or may not believe in a “Family History” of “Religious Persecution” (Look up the Baltic Crusades). Although, I’ll gladly admit that every day my Faith grows, but I don’t know in what way. Thus I’ll firmly state I’m a devout Humanist, of a Christian Origin.
Note: Humanism is a Philosophy, Christianity is a Religion. Things change daily for us all, and I’m devising my own “philosophy” as far as I can make sense of “my world” on a daily basis. I like to consider my “personal taste of life” to be in line with a made up term called “Zen Stoicism”, for I find myself drawing upon inspiration from around the World.

From here on, it’s all “fun n’ games” of some sort. Unless something “Changes”…, so there’s that.
