Christ Is the Eternal Son Of God, and Saviour of the entire world. His Passion, Death, and Resurrection Has set us all free from sin and eternal damnation.

Being the son of god is an achievement in and of itself. It's even more amazing with the fact he got his own religion (albeit he's just the son) & the ability to heal the sick, but that's likely because of his good will & kindness to all. But if you are Christian or have watched The Passion of the Christ, you know just how much he suffered to save us all. So he's also the greatest thing to have ever lived.

Why is a convicted rapist above the Son of God and Savior of the world?

He needs to be #1
