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 Old Testament.
Virtually all modern scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus existed historically.
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.
