Yogananda on Christ's teachings

This famous Swami was a non-sectarian mystic who valued all seekers of the Divine. Here is a site that gives some of his insights into the teachings of Christ as found in the four Gospels:

With his spiritual eye Yogananda saw & communed with Christ many times. He wrote that H. Hofmann's painting came closest to what Jesus looks like. Here is the painting and an article about the devotee of Jesus, Hofmann:

To understand the magnitude of a divine incarnation, it is necessary
to understand the source and nature of the consciousness that is incarnate
in the avatar. Jesus spoke of this consciousness when he proclaimed:
"I and my Father are one" (John 10:30) and "I am in the Father, and the Father
in me" (John 14:11 ). Those who unite their consciousness
to God know both the transcendent and the immanent nature
of Spirit—the singularity of the ever-existing, ever-conscious, evernew
Bliss of the Uncreate Absolute, and the myriad manifestations of
His Being as the infinitude of forms into which He variegates Himself
in the panorama of creation.
Vol. 1:6
