Jesus of Nazareth is a central figure in Christianity, believed by Christians to be the Son of God and the Messiah (or savior) prophesied in the Old Testament. He is also known as Jesus Christ, where “Christ” is a title derived from the Greek word “Christos,” meaning “anointed one.”
According to the New Testament, Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea to Mary and Joseph. He was baptized by John the Baptist and began his public ministry, during which he performed miracles, preached to the masses, and gathered a large following.

Jesus’ teachings, which emphasized love, compassion, and forgiveness, challenged the religious and political authorities of his day, leading to his arrest and crucifixion by the Romans. However, Christians believe that he rose from the dead three days later and appeared to his disciples, and later ascended into heaven.
The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus are celebrated by Christians as the cornerstone of their faith, and the event is commemorated in the annual Christian holiday of Easter.
Jesus’ impact on the world has been immense and far-reaching, with Christianity now being the largest religion in the world. His teachings and example continue to inspire millions of people and have shaped Western civilization in countless ways.
