Domesticated Jesus

To do them justice,
the people who crucified Jesus did not do so because He was a bore. 
Quite the contrary; He was too dynamic to be safe.
It has been left for later generations to muffle up that shattering personality
and surround Him with an atmosphere of tedium. 
We have declawed  the lion of Judah and made Him a housecat for pale priests and pious old ladies.
