Nikhil, that’s an excellent comparison of Jesus and Krishna. Krishna kind of does what human beings, especially Hindu ones, might expect an incarnate God to do, whereas Jesus up-ended many of the Jews’ expectations about the Christ. The living God is indeed a God of surprises, whose wisdom surpasses and confounds the wisdom of this world.
In reply to your post, Rawb: the majority Hindu view seems to be that Krishna is an avatar of Vishnu. But some of the Vaishnava (Vishnu-worshipping) sects, including the Gaudiya Vaishnavas, the sect to which today’s Krishna Consciousness movement belongs, hold that Krishna is “the Supreme Personality of Godhead”, and that Vishnu, Narayana etc. are emanations from him.
In general, “incarnation” is a convenient but less than correct English term for the Sanskrit “avatara”. “Avatara” literally means “descent” or “crossing-over”, as far as I understand it. So Krishna and other Hindu deities do not literally incarnate, i.e. “take flesh”. They do not have a human nature, but only a divine nature. So it is like Docetism, where the god only appears to be man.
