it is said that Jesus is the founder of Christianity and the Savior believed by Christians.
The birth of Jesus: there are such legends about the birth of Jesus.
Mary, the mother of Jesus, was engaged to a young man named Joseph when she was young, but she became pregnant before she got married.
This brought great distress to Joseph.
He wanted to break the engagement.
One night, in a dream, he saw a god floating in and said to him, “Joseph, don’t worry about marrying Mary.
The holy God gave her pregnancy.
He is pregnant with the son of God, Jesus.
He will free mankind from the pain of sin and let him save the world.
” When Joseph woke up, he married Mary according to the will of God.
In the first year of AD, Joseph and Mary came to Jerusalem.
It was dark and cold at that time.
They couldn’t find a suitable place to live, so they lived in the stable.
In the middle of the night, a crisp baby cry came from the shabby stable, and a lovely baby boy was born.
It is said that on the night of the baby boy’s birth, a bright star in the sky fell to Jerusalem.
After seeing it, several oriental doctors said happily, “the Savior Christ was born on earth.
” In an early popular Christmas picture, the Virgin Mary has no pain during childbirth.
Beside her, the baby is wrapped in swaddling clothes and lies in a manger.
In the dark and small stable, in addition to cattle and sheep, there are several Jewish shepherds and doctors from the East.
The picture shows a little angel with long wings spinning on a square, and the baby’s father squats outside the stable, .
this painting depicts a wonderful story about the birth of Jesus.
Fate changed: when Jesus grew up, he inherited his father’s work and became a carpenter.
By about the age of 30, fate had changed.
One day, when he came to the Jordan River, a DUNSHI named John baptized Jesus by immersing him in water while reciting scriptures.
When Jesus was baptized, he prayed earnestly to God.
At this time, the sky opened for him and the Holy Spirit came to him.
A voice from heaven said, “you are my beloved son, and I am pleased with you.
” After being baptized, he was immediately led by the Holy Spirit to the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
He ate here for 40 days and nights.
Then the devil came up to him and said, “if you are the son of God, command these stones to become food.
” Jesus answered, “man does not live by food alone, but by all the words of God.
” The devil took him into the holy city, put him on the top of the temple and said to him, “if you are the son of God, you can jump down.
” Jesus said to him, “do not test the Lord.
” So the devil took him up to the highest mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, and said to him, “if you bow down to me, I will give you all this.
” Jesus said, “it is written that you should worship the king and serve him only.
” After this reply, the devil left Jesus and angels came to serve him.
From then on, Jesus began to preach the gospel of God to the masses.
It is said that Jesus created many miracles when he preached abroad.
With a touch of his hand, he can make the blind bright, the lame walk, the patient recover, and even the dead come back to life.
Once he went sailing.
There was a strong wind on the sea.
He saw that the wind and waves were going to engulf the ship.
Jesus comforted the crowd and denounced the sea.
The sea immediately calmed down.
On another occasion, he broke seven cakes with his hand and could feed 4000 people.
Jesus’ mission made more and more people follow him.
People worship him and believe in him.
He recruited several disciples from believers and often talked about the kingdom of heaven.
“Listen: all modest people are happy, and the kingdom of heaven will belong to them.
all harmonious people are happy, and they will be called the sons of God.
all those who are abused and bullied are happy, and they will be rewarded in heaven after death.
all those who hate others must be judged by God.
” “Listen, love your enemies and don’t fight against the wicked.
If someone hits you on the right face, give him your left face again.
if someone grabs your coat, give him your underwear.
” once, a rich man asked Jesus how to get eternal life? Jesus advised him He sold his property to help the poor.
The rich man was embarrassed and had to walk away in silence.
Jesus said to the disciples around him, “it is more difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle!” Judas and his disciples, who were jealous of Jesus’ resurrection, were saved with a silver coin.
When Jesus was arrested, his disciple Peter pulled out his sword and cut off the ear of a thug.
Jesus said reproachfully, “take the scabbard of the sword, and whoever uses the sword will die by the sword!” The disciple had to put down his knife and Jesus was taken away.
After his arrest, Jesus was beaten, scolded and insulted and crucified.
This year Jesus was just 33 years old.
But three days later, Jesus rose again.
People came to worship him.
Jesus said to the people, “as long as you do as I tell you, I will always be with you.
” It is said that the day after Jesus’ resurrection is the first Sunday after the moon is full at the spring equinox.
This day is Christian “Easter”.
Later, Jesus’ birthday on December 25 was regarded as “Christmas”.
“Christ” means “savior”.
It is said that Jesus ascended to heaven soon after his resurrection.
His believers spread Christianity in a fearless spirit, making Christianity more and more influential.
By the 4th century AD, the Roman rulers believed that the Christian doctrine of loving the enemy and opposing the struggle against evil was beneficial to their rule, so they defined Christianity as the national religion.
Since then, Christianity spread all over the world at a faster speed and became one of the three major religions in the world.
Although Jesus is a legendary figure, the year he was born is regarded as the first year of calculating the historical age, which is called the Christian era, or “ad”, which is the ad chronology commonly used in all countries in the world.
The book that records the life of Jesus, his teachings, and the words and deeds of his disciples is the New Testament, while the Jewish classic is the Old Testament.
The New Testament and the Old Testament are collectively called the new and Old Testament, which is the official classic of Christianity, the Bible.
Little knowledge about the race of Jesus.
Joseph, the adoptive father of Jesus, is a descendant of Abraham.
It is recorded in Chapter 1 of the gospel of Matthew that there are 42 generations from Abraham to Joseph, but according to Chapter 3 of the gospel of Luke, there are only 36 generations from Abraham to Joseph.
According to the gospel of Matthew, Mary conceived before Joseph married, and Jesus was not the son of Joseph’s blood.
However, on the eighth day after Jesus was born, he was circumcised.
On the 40th day, his parents took him to the Scripture to sacrifice.
It can be seen that he is the eldest son recognized by Joseph.
He is the person who inherits the most family property according to the law of Moses and the legal heir of the property.
According to the prophecy of Isaiah in Isaiah, Jesus was born in the family of David, the tribe of Judah.
From Mary and Joseph who went to Bethlehem in Judah to register their residence, we can know that they really belong to the tribe of Judah, because Jesse, the father of Judah, lives in Bethlehem in Judah.
