This stuff about John the Baptist is interesting, but Zoroaster is greater than John the Baptist. So do we need John the Baptist in Zoroastrian Christianity?|
Zoroaster could be thought of as the Christ, but he can also be thought of as the teacher of the Christ like John the Baptist.
However we don't accept that the historical man Jesus is uniquely the Christ.
There are different options as to how Zorochristians can treat Jesus:
1. As a man who represented/incarnated Christ in a particular time in history.
2. As an eternal divine being not tied to a particular point in history - so Jesus becomes another name for Chrestus or the divine Christ.
3. As a saint who is some people's favourite saint, but who is not necessarily that important to us.
