Jesus, Mild?

Why mild? Of all the epithets that could be applied to Christ this seems one of the least appropriate….Jesus Christ might well be called “meek,” in the sense of being selfless and humble and utterly devoted to what He considered right, whatever the personal cost; but “mild,” never!

-J.B. Phillips, Your God is too Small, 1953, p. 27
