The Life of Jesus Christ

The story of Jesus begins even before he was born. We may think how can this be, but it’s true and John the fisherman, a disciple of Jesus, puts it this way:

‘In the very beginning, before anything else existed, the Word (Jesus) existed. The Word was with God and the Word was God.’

Mankind had forgotten the existence of God completely and had sinned beyond pardoning. Therefore, God sent His son Jesus Christ into the world to remind us that there is God, to set aside those from doing errant and give eternal life to whosoever believed in Him.

The Bible says, ``If you keep on sinning, it shows that you belong to Satan … But the Son of God (Jesus) came to ...view middle of the document...

She was a virgin who was engaged to Joseph of Nazareth, a Jewish carpenter. Gabriel told her that God`s power would make the conception possible and said “Nothing will be impossible with God”. When the angel told this to Mary, she immediately consented to God`s will for her life after her initial question on how such a thing would be possible. 

The birth of Jesus Christ

On the other hand, Joseph considered calling off the marriage when he learned about Mary`s pregnancy. But an angel appeared to Joseph in a vision and asked him to marry her. The angel told him that the miraculous conception was caused by the Holy Spirit. Consequently, Joseph took Mary as his wife and kept her a virgin until Jesus was born. 

Joseph being a descendant of David, had to go to Bethlehem to register with Mary, after an order passed by the Caesar Augustus that a census be taken in the entire Roman world. While in Bethlehem, Mary gave birth to Jesus in a crude stable. There was no room for Joseph`s family at the inn, as the tiny city was crowded with Jews, who also came to register. She wrapped the infant in clothes and laid him in a manger.

Angels, shepherds and wise men came to worship Him and gave precious gifts. 
``Glory to God in the highest, 
and on earth, 
peace towards men.`` …they thus sang.

Presentation of Jesus at the Temple

A week later, time came for the baby to be circumcised and he was named Jesus, the name which the angel had given him before he had been conceived. After all the ceremonial laws concerning purification were complete, Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to present him in the Temple at Jerusalem. The event is described in the Gospel of Luke 2:22–40. It was performed so as to complete Mary`s ritual purification after childbirth and to perform the redemption of the firstborn, in obedience to the Law of Moses (Leviticus 12, Exodus 13:12-15, etc.).

Upon bringing Jesus to the temple, Simeon the Righteous, took him up in his arms and blessed God and said – “At last, Lord, you can dismiss your servant in peace, as you promised! For with my own eyes I have seen your salvation which you have made ready for every people - a light to show truth to the Gentiles and bring glory to your people Israel.” (Luke 2:29-32).

At that time, Mary and Joseph had to offer a gift to God. But as we know that they were poor, their gift was the cheapest and they could offer only two birds. Although Jesus was the Heir of all things, he became one of the humblest men from birth. 

Early days of Jesus

As a child, Jesus was obedient to His parents. Jesus had brothers and sisters. Although his sisters are un-named, his brothers were: James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas.
He grew up in Nazareth helping his father Joseph and worked as a carpenter till he reached thirty years of age. He lived in a poor family and served people all his life. Things did not always go well for him; he also had troubles like all of us. 

In Philippians 2:7-11 Paul tells us...
