Jesus as teacher

This is a great question! Jesus' life is attractive for His moral quality!

But it is important to make this distinction. Without an understanding of why Jesus died, human beings will not be sensitive to the concept of sin and appraise the truth of their human nature.

You might believe that human nature is innately good.

You may not have any guilt, shame or remorse for bad thoughts and actions.

You may not see a need to repent.

De-emphasizing His death and resurrection denies the deity of Jesus Christ and the basis of His absolute moral standard; you may be unaware of His work of atonement.
