Talk #1 of the Series, I Say Unto You, Vol. 1

"The Gospel starts in an incredibly beautiful way. No other book starts that way, no other book can start that way. The Bible is 'the book of the books': that is the exact meaning of the word Bible – the Book. It is the most precious document that humanity has. That's why it is called 'The Testament,' because Jesus has witnessed to God in it: Jesus has become the witness to God, a testament. It is the only proof possible. God cannot be argued, but only a man like Jesus can become a proof for him.

"The Gospel carries all that is beautiful in Jesus' flowering, the Beatitudes. Those statements are the most beautiful ever made. Not even Buddha, not even Lao Tzu, have spoken that way. Buddha is very philosophic, very refined; Jesus is very plain, simple."

Osho continues:
"Jesus speaks like a villager, a farmer, a fisherman. But because he speaks the way common people speak, his words have a solidity, a concreteness, a reality.

"Buddha's words are abstract; they are very very high words, philosophical. Jesus' words are down-to-earth, very earthly. They have that fragrance of the earth that you come across when the rains have started and the earth is soaking up the rains and a great fragrance arises – the fragrance of the wet earth, the fragrance that you find on a sea beach, the fragrance of the ocean, the trees. Jesus' words are very very earthbound, rooted in the earth. He is an earthly man, and that is his beauty. Nobody else can be compared with that beauty. The sky is good, but abstract, far away, distant.

"So I say to you, no other book starts the way the Gospel starts; no other book talks the way the Gospel talks.

"The word gospel comes originally from a word godspel. God has spoken through Jesus. Jesus is just a hollow bamboo. The song is of God, and Jesus' metaphors are very true to life. He is not spinning concepts, he is simply indicating the truth as it is.

"First the beginning:

"'The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas…. And Judas begat Phares…and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram…' and so it goes, on and on. And then: '…Jacob begat Joseph. the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.'

"Then this genealogy stops suddenly. Forty-two generations have passed from Abraham to Jesus. The Gospel records the forty-two generations, and then suddenly Jesus is born and the genealogy stops. Suddenly there comes a full point. because Jesus is the fulfillment; there is no beyond. Jesus is the culmination – there is no way to go further on. So 'Abraham begat Isaac, Isaac begat Jacob…' – it continues. Then there is no way to go beyond Jesus: the ultimate has come. Jesus is the flowering and the fulfillment. That's why the Bible calls Jesus the pleroma, the fulfillment."
