Jesus was a perfect sinless human (they say) who came to die for mankind. He gave up his perfect life for all. Selfless? He was promised he would have world ruler-ship if he were faithful to death. Promised he would be brought back to life and elevated to the right hand of God. Told he could once again be God's special one over all others. How selfless was it for him to die? Look at all the perks of completing his mission.
Brenda Lee Marquez McCool was the mother of a 21 year old gay boy who went to a bar with him to salsa dance. She had fought and beaten cancer twice. When a crazed gunman headed in their direction firing, she yelled "get down" and jumped in front of her son taking two bullets saving her son's life and ending her own. She was NOT a perfect human. She had no promise of special status with God for doing it. No promise of kingship in heaven. It was a simple act of love and selflessness.
Who was more selfless? I vote Brenda over king Jesus. How about you?
