Jesus Christ is the central figure that separates Christianity from other religions. Christians believe that he is both God and a man; that he created the world and mankind, and that he is alive today.
Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, probably about 4 BC. He was born to Mary who was a virgin married to Joseph, a carpenter from Galillee. The precise date of his birth is not known, but it is celebrated at Christmas.
He was born around the 4 BC and grew up in Palestine where he taught about God's love and the repentance of sin. He died on a cross for the sins of all humanity. Three days after the crucifixion, Jesus appeared to his disciples, risen from the dead. He sent his disciples out into the world and today millions of people today know the risen Lord Christ and celebrate his resurrection on Easter Sunday.
The Bible tells us that Jesus is God in human flesh (John 1:1 and John 1:14).
Debates regarding God, and disagreements regarding Christ's nature have occurred since the times of the early church.
Many historians (including non-Christian historians) agree that there is good historical evidence of the life and crucifixion of Jesus. Apart from the Bible, there are numerous mentions of Jesus in historical texts. But perhaps most compelling that Jesus existed is that fact that just a few short years after his death, thousands of people were boldly proclaiming his name and were willing to die throughout the Roman Empire.
Jesus is widely regarded as a great teacher. Throughout the Gospels, people are frequently quoted as addressing him as "Teacher". Jesus often taught using illustrations and stories - parables. His parables often tell of the kingdom of God and the nature of God. Sometimes the meaning is clear, at other times it can seem hidden.
Most of the direct teaching from Jesus' is recorded in the the Gospels. These are 4 books (Gospel of Matthew, Gospel of Mark, Gospel of Luke, Gospel of John) in the Bible. One of the most well know sections of teaching is called the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus called on his followers to live lives of love, loving God, loving family and friends and even loving enemies. Jesus also taught about himself, that it was only through him that a person could come to know God.
The gospel accounts of Jesus' life record numerous miracles that Jesus performed. He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind and calmed the storms. These miracles act as a testimony to the deity of Christ, as well as to his compassion.
Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem around the year 30 AD. He was executed because of his claims to be the Son of God, which was considered blasphemous by the religious leaders of his day. In his death, the Bible tells us, that he bore all the sins of mankind, so that we could be clean and without sin in the eyes of God. His death is remembered on Good Friday.
To become a Christian, repent of your sins, and invite Jesus Christ into your heart. Follow Jesus and learn about who he is in the Bible, such as a good Student Bible in modern English. You may take a Membership 101 class at your local Church if you like. When you're ready, you may show others you are following Jesus by becoming baptized in water as Jesus did. Think on the Kingdom of God, learn about it. There are many Bible Studies and Sunday Schools, catering to all types of people.
