are you implying in someway that O'Sensei recognized the concept of Jesus or the bible as a religious ideal?
If so, what responses might he have had toward Christianity?
Would be interested to know what his thoughts were.
I'm not implying anything, really, it's just a quote. But no, I don't think he thought of Jesus or the bible as a religious ideal other than in very general terms. I would imagine (as we see in the quote) that his experience and knowledge of Christianity was fairly rudimentary.
