12 Disciples

As a Jew born in the Roman province of Judea, Jesus followed many of the teachings of Judaism. We know about Jesus from four accounts called the Gospels, weritten after his death by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. According to the Gospels, Jesus was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth. Christians would later celebrate his birth on the holiday of Christmas. In the Gospel account, Jesus was raised by Mary and by Joseph, a carpenter.

The Beginning

Jesus' Death and Resurrection

Saul was a Jew who harassed Chrisitans. He thought they were wrong and that Jesus was not the Messiah. He was on his way to Damascus to hunt down Christians and saw God. God told him that Jesus was his son and Saul believed Jesus was the Messiah. This changed who Saul was forever. He became a true believer. Saul was his Jewish name and Paul was his Roman name. Paul traveled around converting anyone he could to Christianity. Almost everywhere Paul went he started new Christian churches. He would communicate with all of these new churches by writing letters. Paul's letters become part of the New Testament, the Epistles. Paul was tried and convicted by the Romans and is thought to be put to death by them. However, his letters live on and have become part of Christian history.

The claim that Jesus was the Messiah was not possitive for everyone, in fact Jewish and Roman leaders were threatened by him. They were concerned that their power would be questioned and the people would look to Jesus. Jewish authorities appointed by Rome arrested and turned Jesus over to Rome. Pontius Pilate, Rome's Governor, rule that Jesus was to be crucified.

Jesus died by crucifixion and was placed in a tomb with a huge stone in front of it. On the thrid day after his crucifixion the Gospels tell that his followers came to care for his body and the stone was moved and the tomb was empty. This was known as the resurrection, or return to life. This event proved to many that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. This resurrection is celebrated by Christians as Easter.
