The dual nature of Christ can be seen as a representation of the dichotomy between the ideal (the Mission) and the human frailty of leaders that embody it (sometimes only temporarily, as you point out).

But perhaps if we really want to live we have to either be such a leader or follow one. We have to have a mission, even if it is foolish, misguided or temporary.
