The obscurity of Christ
It is a little known fact that the neglect of Jesus by the historians, and his apparent lack of interest by important people and writers during his lifetime, the kind of obscurity and irrelevance which many modern people interpret so that they can say 'Do you know, Jesus probably never existed', or some kind of phrase common amongst adolescents and practically taken for granted amongst the ordinary man and woman - this obscurity of Christ is no problem to us.
As far as Pascal is concerned:
" ... Jesus Christ lived and died in an obscurity (according to what society and the common man knows as obscurity) such that historians who wrote about important events of state and politics, hardly noticed him at all." (Pensees, Chapter 19, 2).
If Christ had left any important marks on history other than the word of mouth accounts of those who were his intimate friends and disciples, then he would not have been what he was: the man in whom God emptied himself out completely, abased himself and died ignominiously on Earth, for us. At his last hours, Christ is abandoned by even these close friends, and finally even by his Father. That history abandoned and ignored him is only right.
That the world abandoned Him is more proof of what the Father had in mind when he died on the Cross, in the Son. That is, that everyone coming later should find himself and must go and seek out Christ, and in Christ's death shrouded in absolute darkness, find himself and the absolute light which was to be discovered there, each by himself for all times.
