Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the central figure of Christian mythology, the Son of God who became a man to save the world, a Jewish gospeler whose teachings became the basis of Christianity. The majority of information about Jesus as a man is uncertain or questionable; some historians even doubt his actual existence. He was probably born in Bethlehem or Nazareth in 7 B.C., spent most of his life in Galilee during the reign of Herod Antipas and died as a martyr in Jerusalem probably sometime between the year of 29 and 32. Four canonical gospels that Christians consider the primary source of information about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ are not credible historical documents; the gospels describe the life and mission of Jesus Christ as viewed by His disciples at the time they were written, i.e. in the last quarter of the 1st century. Jesus, as well as His forerunner St. John the Baptist, differed from today’s preachers in particular by stressing the coming of the Kingdom of God, which is now being realized through Jesus. Because of His acts, He came into conflict with back-then Jewish politicians and the Roman occupational power; after His coming to Jerusalem, Jesus was accused of preparing a political revolution and was crucified. His disciples were convinced that Jesus was alive and revealed to them. The modified teachings and work of Jesus Christ became the foundation of the Christian faith. – For Christians, Jesus Christ is the Son of God born of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, who incarnated, became a man, lived among people and was crucified and resurrected. And this miracle brings salvation to all His followers. He is the only mediator between God and man and the climax of God’s revelation. According to Christian tradition, Jesus Christ was also a perfect man; a Christian should act in compliance with Jesus’ teachings and acts.
