The Ideality of Jesus: In Defense of His Moral Unsurpassability
Sperry, Ashton Tylor

I will argue that Christians should rightly and reasonably believe that Jesus exemplifies a moral ideality that is unsurpassable and unmatchable. This moral ideality allows for the development of human excellences; and Christians can assert that Jesus transcends his humanity by achieving this moral ideality, but this assertion does not require them to believe he realizes a human ideal. Further, Jesus can live a fully human life, and not be humanly ideal.
