Who Said It: Gandalf Or Jesus?

So, we can all gain truth from various sources, but sometimes it is the sources themselves that be quite confusing. Although many people do not have the problem of getting Gandalf and Jesus confused with each other, the more you know about them, the more similarities you start to see. Both had beards, and gathered a motley crew of people to follow them around and do stuff which was really dangerous, and they were completely unprepared for.
