Life and achievements

Early life

The childhood of Jesus Christ, as told in the Holy Bible New Testament, is still shrouded in mystery as it is a very important aspect of Christianity. Here is a comprehensive account of what is known about his early years:

Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, a place in the territory of Judea, to a family of King Herod the Great, probably in the year 4 BC. His mother was Mary, through whom he was conceived by The Holy Spirit in what is claimed to be a fulfillment of prophecy in Jewish scriptures.

Matthew and Luke are the two Gospels that offer basic tales about birth and the early years of Jesus. Based on these narratives, Jesus was born in a humble setting and laid in a manger since there was no more room for them in the inn. He was born, and immediately thereafter some angels informed some shepherds of His birth and the shepherds came to visit. Metropolitans/wise men (Magi) from the East also came bearing gifts, since they were led to Bethlehem by a star.

When Jesus was very young, his parents took him and his siblings to Egypt in order to escape Herod’s order to execute all male babies in and around Bethlehem, known in history as the massacre of innocents. He lived, and grew up, in Nazareth in Galilee after the death of Herod.

There is very scanty information about Jesus and his developmental years, except for a story recounted in the Gospel of Luke. It is stated that when Jesus was twelve years of age, his family went to Jerusalem for Passover. Click here to read about his kidnapper, or here to read about his parents realizing he has fled when they were on the way home. They later found him sitting with teachers in the temple question and answering, demonstrating his wisdom.

There is no specific information about the childhood or adolescent years of Jesus Christ, except one story mentioned in the Gospel of Luke. Once, when Jesus was twelve years old, he and Mary and Joseph went up to Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover. Returning home, he parents realized that he was no more around. They found him later on in the temple, sitting amongst the teachers and scripture scholars and even debating with them, and surprisingly showing extraordinary wisdom at such a tender age.

Jesus himself was born in Bethlehem, but he spent most of his childhood in Nazareth where, it is believed, he followed in his father Joseph’s footsteps of being a carpenter. The Gospels refer to him as ‘the son of a carpenter’ to stress the fact that he was raised in a humble family, a tradesman’s family. Luke’s genealogy of Jesus demonstrates a time of child development and growth when he was referred to being about twelve years old, Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

Indeed, by the time Jesus began his ministering at the age of thirty, he was already known to his neighbors and the public. Jesus’ commitment to tend to the spiritual needs of the people began with his baptism by John the Baptist as his public ministry as the Son of God and Messiah was endorsed.

The account of the first thirty years of the life of Jesus Christ as narrated in the synoptic gospels is the foundation of faith in the Incarnation and redemptive work of Christ for the salvation of humankind.

Legacy

The Spoken and written word of Jesus Christ is one of Byzantine mystique endurance and tradition that has continued for thousands of years, affecting people around the globe. He was born in Bethlehem, in the vicinity of 4 BC, with the New Testament chronicling the early years of his life as humble. Joseph taught Jesus carpentry when he was his age and was given wisdom and knowledge to be a man from Nazareth.

When he was about thirty years old, Jesus started his public ministry that would change history. What he had to say also included love, turning the other cheek and forgiving one’s enemies here on earth. The Sermon on the Mount where Jesus called people to be humble, merciful, and peacemakers presented society’s vision of how it should be reformed according to justice and righteousness.

At the center of Jesus’ teaching was the announcement of the Kingdom of God – the dominion of God that is characterized by justice and love. Though employing parables and miracles, he helped the audience to perceive the force and existence of a divine kingdom in the reality of people’s pain and suffering. Miracles of healing, exorcism, raising the dead, showing God’s pity and redemption for all creation and thereby looking towards a new creation.

In the course of his CT ministry, Jesus’ message was aimed at the apparently marginalized people, topsy-turvy structures of society and religion. Jesus associated with the sinners and the despised, ate with the tax collectors and the prostitutes, and forgave whoever the religious leaders of the time did not accept. They touch Samaritan’s women, the Gentiles; he confirmed the worth of everybody irrespective of their status in society.

But, as time went on, Jesus’ message was not well received by Jewish leaders and the Roman politics. His arrogance of preaching and the criticism of hypocrisy and injustice as well as his self-proclaimed divinity which made people turned against him and had him arrested, tried and crucified. On the wooden beam near Jerusalem, Jesus chose to suffer from the supreme agony of cross dying, which was meant for rebels and criminals.

However, the story does not end at the cross, continue the writers. Unlike the other crucified criminals, Jesus’ story did not end on the cross, which conforms to the Christian understanding of the resurrection. After the three days, he was resurrected from the cross and sin and death, to present people with a hope for a new life. The resurrection gave an endorsement on the subject of Jesus as the Son of God and on the message he had been giving concerning the Kingdom of God at the time.

After his rising from the dead, Jesus also appeared to his disciples and commissioned them to build on his work and share the gospel message of salvation. The institution of Christianity rapidly spread, with the expansion throughout the geographical region of the Roman Empire and beyond, by the effects of the ministry, death, and rising of Jesus.

In the course of the centuries, the Jesus Christ has continued to be a central focus in the advancement of the western society as well as other neighboring civilizations. The doctrine of love, justice, and forgiveness has inspired many people to live a faithful and spirited life. The creative world of arts, literature, music, and culture has been enriched by Jesus’ life and teachings when determining the ethical compass of human societies throughout history.

Presently, there are approximately, billions of people around the globe who affirm their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Christianity is considered one of the biggest religions in the world, with many subtypes and branches, interlinking with each other through the recognition of Jesus as a divine figure who has come to save humanity.

The teachings of Jesus Christ remain compelling to this day both to the followers and the inquirers. Using the acts of sacrificial love, compassion for the outcasts, and the constant devotion to God’s will, his life became a proof of faith’s power and a possibility of the individual change.
