"Everything I know about Jesus, I learned through the School Christmas Pageant." That about sums it up for a majority of Americans, and Westerners for that matter. Even those of us around the Faith for much of our lives harbor deep-seated misunderstandings about the life Jesus led on this Earth and the significance of the things mentioned in his story; his relationships; his teachings. And those misunderstandings can lead to serious consequences. They also can short-change our appreciation for the powerful revolution that Jesus ushered in with his life and sacrifice.
