Third Noble Truth and Christ

Two insights, each respectively from Buddhism and Christianity, may combine to reveal something important.

The Third Noble Truth of Buddhism states that we can escape the suffering inherent in life (which is acknowledged by the First Truth).

For Christians, though humans are mortal, Jesus Christ’s example can be followed to lead a more virtuous life.

We can transcend life’s suffering by following the examples set by ideal beings: even though they are supernormal!
