The problem with your comparison is you aren't taking Clark's point of view into account. Clark doesn't consider himself to be a higher being. To him, saving his classmates is no different than me pushing you out of the way of a speeding truck.

For me, Jon's character has never really hinged upon him being selfless.
I've always believed that Jonathan, above all, believed in doing the right thing. Clark did the right thing by saving those kids, and I don't think Jonathan Kent, of all people, should criticize him for that.
