RKS Literature: Passage of the Day: The Rabbi Wonders is it Jesus or Satan?

“During all these days and weeks that he had been running behind Jesus, battling to understand who he was, his ramshackle body had completely melted away. Nothing was left now but a sunbaked hide wrapped around bones to which the soul clung and waited. Was this man the Messiah whom God had promised him, or wasn’t he? All the miracles he performed could also be performed by Satan, who could even resurrect the dead. The miracles therefore did not give the rabbi sufficient basis to pass judgment: nor did the prophecies, Satan was sly and exceedingly powerful archangel. In order to deceive mankind he was capable of making his words and actions fit the holy prophecies to perfection.”

Nikos Kazantzakis “The Last Temptation” 1962
