Jesus’ birth was for told by old testament prophets and is celebrated each year worldwide by Christians on December 25th. Jesus Christ was born circa 6 B.C. in the town of Bethlehem.

Early Life

Jesus’ mother is Mary and his earthly father is Joseph. Christians believe Jesus was born through God’s spirit overcoming Mary and that Mary was a virgin at the time of Jesus birth. Jesus is of the house of David according to Mathew 2:1. The most famous account of his birth is found in the modern new testament in Luke 2.

Fearing the prophecies may be true, King Herod ordered the death of all children un 2 years of age in Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. Joseph, Jesus’ father was warned of this by an angel. The family eventually moved back to Nazareth a town in Galilee.Some accounts of his early life are found in Luke 2 and records the first account of his divine role at the age of 12 years old.

It is widely believed that Jesus started his ministry or divine mission at the age of 30. He spent three years preaching, teaching, healing and performing miracles that was the beginning of Christianity and garnered many followers and believers.Jesus’ traveled to many villages and chose 12 disciples or apostles to help in his ministry. He had many more disciples including Mary Magdalene who is a key person in Jesus’ life along with her family and Mary his mother. As recoded in the new testament, Mary Magdalene was the first person to see Jesus resurrected three days after he was crucified and buried in a tomb.

Jesus would teach crowds of people where ever he went and would often performed miracles along his journeys. His teachings included parables, commandments, truth about the kingdom of God and his divine role. Jesus often showed his apostles how to minster and be obedient. Jesus’ cousin John the baptist preached about Jesus and baptized believers. Jesus was baptized by John and what followed was an account of the voice of God being heard by witnesses of his baptism.
