Jesus (4 BC – AD 30 / 33) also
referred to as Jesus of Nazareth
and Jesus Christ,
was a first-century Jewish preacher
and religious leader.
He is the central figure of Christianity,
and is widely described as the most
influential person in history. Most
Christians believe he is the incarnation
of God the Son and the awaited
Messiah (Christ) prophesied in the
Virtually all modern scholars of
antiquity agree that Jesus existed
Jesus was a Galilean Jew, who was
baptized by John the Baptist and
began his own ministry. He preached
orally and was often referred to as "rabbi".
Jesus debated with fellow Jews on
how to best follow God, engaged in
healings, taught in parables and
gathered followers. He was arrested
and tried by the Jewish authorities,
turned over to the Roman government,
and crucified on the order of Pontius
Pilate, the Roman prefect. After his
death, his followers believed he
rose from the dead, and the
community they formed eventually
became the early Church.
Jesus also figures in non-Christian
religions. In Islam, Jesus (Isa) is
considered one of God's important
prophets and the Messiah.
Authors note: Jesus was clearly
what in India they call a Bhakta -
a devotee of God. His practice
was Divine Love, which leads to
extreme love for all beings, from
a sense of unity and oneness.
He confronted all hatred with
love - a clear sign of a Saint.
There is much discussion about
this, and discrepancies, but it all
comes that people
with no real spiritual experience
or depth can not really fathom
his teachings or life.
They can argue and drown in
a pool of clear water - and not
see its meant for drinking!
The four canonical gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) are the foremost sources for the life and message of Jesus.
