Abstract: Jėzus Kristus, tikras Dievas ir tikras žmogus, yra krikščioniškojo tikėjimo ir gyvenimo pagrindas, paskatinęs Vakarų kultūros susiformavimą. Tačiau šalia krikščionių gyvena kitaip mąstantys ir kitaip tikintys žmonės. Norint darniai ir taikiai sugyventi šiandienos globaliame pasaulyje, be galo svarbu pažinti greta esantį kitaip mąstantį, tikintį ir gyvenantį žmogų. Straipsnyje siekiama pristatyti, kaip Jėzaus asmuo vertinamas didžiosiose nekrikščionių religijose, išryškinti panašumus ir esminius skirtumus. Tai galėtų paskatinti konstruktyvų tarpusavio dialogą
By the power of the Holy Spirit and the apostles’ missions, the name of Jesus became known all over the world.

So, the understanding of the personality of Jesus and his acceptance are also different. It is important to see what is common and different in the theological portrait of Jesus’ person among Christians and non-Christians. All non-Christian religions talk about Jesus. Some of them, especially Islam, pay a lot of attention to him while other, such as Buddhism or former Judaism, show minimal attention to his person. But in all largest religions, the person of Jesus bears a very positive connotation. It is evident that interest in Jesus’ personality is increasing nowadays and it is especially obvious in modern Judaism. All non-Christian religions take Jesus as a very prominent man, the model of honour, morality, wisdom and humanism. All of them emphasize and present Jesus as an example to follow for his spirituality, community with God and faithfulness, and even more. As in Christianity, Jesus is shown as the revelation of God’s operation: his miracles are depicted in Koran and his resurrection is recognized by some representatives of Judaism. In spite of positive evaluation of Jesus’ person in non-Christian religions and some doctrinal similarities or even coincidences, there are essential differences because all non-Christian religions neglect the divinity of Jesus. In their view Jesus is only a man: a prophet, a teacher, a miracle worker but nothing more. Though Hinduism takes Jesus as the incarnation of deity, it does not consider him as unique and the only one, as Christians believe it, but one of many. Without recognizing Jesus’ true and full divinity, he is not accepted as a saviour or redemptor. [...]
