There's some material on this in Hallman's _The Descent of God_, which deals with the idea of divine suffering especially in the early church. I'm away from home right now & can't give more detail. The idea of the suffering of God in Whitehead's process philosophy is quite explicitly influenced by "the Galilean ordin ofr Christianity" (his phrase) but Gandhi was positively influenced by Jesus as well & he wasn't a Christian.
