Lord Jesus Christ
 

In about AD 30 a young Jewish man began to preach in Palestine that he was the Son of God, the Messiah or anointed one that the Jews had been expecting.  Many People accepted his message and his following grew rapidly. The Jewish authorities resented his work, and got him crucified by the Roman Governor of Palestine in about AD 33. Within a century his message had spread throughout Asia Minor and into Europe, becoming tolerated in the mighty Roman Empire in 313. Today, Christianity, the religion he founded, is one of world’s leading religious -faiths.

   
A. Early Life: 
Jesus was born in Bethlehem in what is now Israeli occupied West Bank. He was trained as a carpenter. The Bible says that his mother Mary was a virgin when she gave him birth. In his early 30s he gave up his work and devoted his time to preaching and healing.
   

B. Jesus’ work:
For three years, Jesus preached his message throughout Palestine He gathered 12 local men to support him. They became known as apostles, from a Greek word meaning - a person sent or chosen.  Jesus declared the need for people to repent of their sins and to believe and follow him.  Within three years, his preaching and his ability to heal the sick brought him a considerable following throughout Palestine.  His wider group of followers became known as disciples.

   
C. The Original 12 Disciples of Jesus:  
(Luke 6/12-16)“At that time Jesus went up to a hill to pray. He spent the whole night in prayer with God. When day came he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them whom he called apostles.”
1.   Simon whom he named Peter
2.   Andrew, his brother
3.   James,
4.   John,
5.   Philip,
6.   Berthelomew
7.   Mathew
8.   Thomas
9.   James, son of Alpheus
10. Simon, called Zealot
11. Judas, son of James
12. Judas, Iscariot, who became a traitor.
 
   
D. Miracles of Jesus: According to Bible Jesus worked many miracles as signs of his divinity, like feeding the hungry, healing the sick and raising the dead. The greatest proof of his claim as the Messiah and the Son of God is his resurrection from the dead, which later became the key to Christian faith and preaching.  (see Miracles of  Jesus)
   

E. The Sermon of the Mount:The preaching and teachings of Jesus has become a path-finder for whole humanity for right way of life and relationships.  His Sermon on the Mount is the most famous guide to Christian way of life. (See Words of Wisdom from Jesus)

   
F. The Last Supper: On the last evening, before he was arrested, Jesus ate his last supper with the disciples, during which he broke the bread and blessed the wine and shared with them, saying that he has given them his own flesh and blood in the form of this bread and wine. The Christian believers continue to celebrate Jesus’ last supper, the Holy Eucharist, to commemorate his life-giving and sacrificial death on the cross, on the next day.
   
G. Death of Jesus: After three years of preaching, Jesus was arrested by Jewish authorities and handed over to the Roman rulers of Palestine to be crucified. The Roman Governor of Palestine, Pontius Pilate ordered him to be tortured and crucified. 
   
H. The Resurrection of Jesus:On the third day of his death and burial, Jesus appeared to his disciple Mary Magdaline and later to other Apostles and disciples confirming them that he has risen from death and was alive. The vision of the Risen Jesus and his last commandment, “Go out into the whole world proclaim the Good News to the whole creation” (Mk. 16/15), prompted his disciples to spread the Good News of God’s forgiving love and salvation through the atoning death of Jesus and the true repentance of each person,  trusting in God’s mercy.
