    Everyone has a Jesus! And most everyone esteems him. For the Hindus, Jesus was an incarnation (avatar) of the Hindu gods; Buddhists believe Jesus was a wise teacher and excellent moral example; Muslims revere Jesus as a prophet but nothing more; Jehovah’s Witnesses believe Jesus was the first created being through whom all things were made; and Latter Day Saints (Mormons) believe that Jesus is God’s son (physical offspring), who through obedience to Mormon teachings attained godhood.
