Lots of people believe Jesus is God. Another common refrain, and one that is not limited to Christians is God is Love.
But no, I wouldn’t say that it is universal among christian that Jesus is literally love. I would go even further in saying that there is very little about christian faith that is truly universal. Perhaps the death and resurrection and some other factoids of his personal history are close to it. But as to the actual nature of Jesus, the essence… well, that gets mixed up into the whole Trinity thing. Is Jesus God, or the son of God and therefor a second God, and WTF is the deal with the Holy Ghost? If Jesus is the same God as the Old Testament God, was there some kind of therapy in between?
I think the issue of Jesus’s nature is too… fuzzy… for there to be universal agreement about it.
FYI, I was raised catholic, but I’ve been an atheist for a long lime.
