    No, if Jesus managed to have telekinetic powers, then that leaves the table for every other prophet in existence to have had it. Ignoring the fact that it's extremely unlikely, the only thing supporting that Jesus would've been the only one who'd be telekinetic is the fact that the religion he inspired managed to spread farther than most, something which is completely circumstantial.

    It's funny: he's been dead for 2000 years, yet everyone's still talking about him.

    Do you think he’s overrated?

    I once read an historical scholar who said that the reason Christianity spread so quickly was the fact that it clearly stated as a fundamental precept, "One man, one wife."

    Previously, men, even Jewish men, were free to marry as many women as they could get. This left a lot of poor men with no prospects, and a lot of women sharing a house with other wives.
    The historian speculated that women immediately saw the advantage of being the only wife and converted to Christianity, and if a man wanted to marry her, the woman would insist that he convert, too. Otherwise, he could just hang with the goats, bro.

    I think this sounds very reasonable. It would make Christianity the first modern women's rights movement.

    Overrated as God's only son and the saviour of mankind? Yeah, probably.

    Overrated as one of the most influential people to walk on Earth (and water), probably not. For the leader of an obscure first century cult in an obscure provincial outpost, he certainly did well for himself.

    @xerx even the first century became the first one after him
