An introduction to the original Jesus. Osho places him among the great mystics: an extraordinary man whose work was misunderstood by his own people and the creators of Christianity. When all the superstition and layers of misunderstanding are stripped away, we can see the revolutionary contribution of the man.What if Jesus were not a supernatural being conceived by a virgin, but a real human being who had experienced the awakening of consciousness known as "enlightenment" in the East?This extraordinary line-by-line commentary on some of the best-known New Testament Gospels from Matthew and John tests the hypothesis that Jesus was a mystic, not a miracle worker of supernatural origin. Osho convincingly makes the case that the stories of Jesus' life were never meant to be a factual record of history, but rather are teaching parables designed to provide ongoing spiritual guidance for generations to come. I Say Unto You introduces a dynamic, compassionate, intelligent, lovingJesus, who speaks in a plain and simple way that everyone can understand. Osho looks with a crystal-clear perception at Jesus' work, revealing the parables and miracles as metaphors of the inner world. He gives insight into Jesus' own search, and his journeys to the ancient mystery schools of Egypt, Kashmir and Tibet that transformed him into one of the most evolved masters of the paths of love and meditation. His insightsare so relevant for today's societies where the sharp functioning of themind is more valued than the intelligence of the heart.
Osho is a contemporary mystic whose life and teachings have influenced millions of people of all ages, and from all walks of life. His often provocative and challenging teachings generate today more and more interest and his readership is dramatically expanding around the world in more than fifty languages.

The Sunday Times in London named Osho as one of the "1,000 Makers of the 20th Century." He is known around the world for his revolutionary contribution to meditation -- the science of inner transformation -- with the unique approach of his "OSHO Active Meditations" acknowledging the accelerated pace of contemporary life and bringing meditation into modern life.
