The Life of Jesus
Transcript of The Life of Jesus
The Magi are also referred to as the wise men or priests with supernatural powers - from the East bought presents for baby Jesus. They followed a brilliant star in the sky in order to find Jesus, the prophesized saviour.
(The Three Wise Men) Jesus left Galilee and returned to Jerusalem. Soon, he realized that his teachings had aroused opposition. Worse still, he knew that one of his own disciples was turning against him. Jesus knew that the danger was great, and that he must prepare for the end. He gathered his 12 disciples together for a final meal, known as the Last Supper. (J.Rubin) by: Tenecia B-C. and Patricia D. The Life of Jesus The Birth of Jesus (6 BC) Resurrection ( 30 AD - Sunday) Annunciation The Magi visit Jesus ( 5 BC) Between 7 AD and 26 BC there is
little to no information known about
the life of Jesus. (J. Rubin) Missing Information?
During the first part of his ministry Jesus made tours from his base at Capernaum in Galilee to the neighbouring towns and villages, proving the authority of his mission by performing miraculous deeds. The Gospels describe various miracles, such as raising the dead, casting out devils, healing the sick, calming the waves and winds by command, and other wonderful deeds. (J.Rubin) The Miracles ( 26 AD) Foretelling of Jesus’ birth
Some time before Jesus' birth the angel Gabriel visited Mary and told her that she was going to have a very special baby. (J. Rubin)
God grants this event to Mary as she has been pure and devoted to God. Jesus is conceived and born to Mary; this is the beginning of the life of the Saviour Jesus Christ. One of the key beliefs of Christianity is the fact that Jesus is the immaculate son of God and Mary and is 100% God and 100% Human. (J. Piper)
In Bethlehem, Judea. Gospels, Jesus was not the physical son of Joseph; Mary miraculously conceived him through God, which is why Christians say that he was conceived by the Holy Ghost and born to the Virgin Mary. (J. Rubin) Jesus is acknowledge by God as his son when he was baptized by John in the River Jordan which makes him the Messiah, or the prophesied saviour.
This has also become the rite of initiation for Christians.
Jesus must have been around 30 years old when he met a man called John the Baptist, who had started a religious movement preparing for the coming of the Messiah, or saviour. Jesus was baptized by John in the River Jordan. The Baptism of Jesus (26 AD) Jesus demonstrates wisdom and understanding at a young age.
According to the Gospels, at age 12 Jesus made a visit with his parents to Jerusalem during the feast of the Passover. St. Luke tells us how suddenly he disappeared and eventually his parents found him in the Temple where, to their great astonishment he was holding a serious conversation with learned men that were astonished by his wisdom. (J. Rubin) Jesus visits the temple ( 7 AD) Jesus had chosen a little group of 12 disciples, or
followers called apostles, to help him in his work. He
began to give them special teaching and shared with
them some of his own deepest religious experiences so
that they could understand fully who he was. (J. Rubin)
These 12 disciples will later be the core group of people who help spread Christianity after Jesus' death. Jesus chooses his 12 disciples ( 28 AD) After the meal, Jesus and the disciples went to Mount of Olives, a hill on the east side of Jerusalem. That is the place where Judas Iscariot brought his men to arrest Jesus. They took him to the Jewish leaders for trial. The High Priest asked Jesus, "Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed, and Jesus replied, "I am". Consequently, he was sentenced to death. The sentence the Jewish leaders had passed could not be carried out until it had been approved by the Roman governor of Judea, Pontius Pilate. Pilate was uncertain what to do and after consulting the crowd he gave in and sentenced Jesus to be crucified (this was the Roman method of executing criminals by nailing them to a cross). (J.Rubin) Arrest and Trial ( 30 AD - Friday) The Last Supper ( 30 AD - Thursday) On Friday evening the dead body of Jesus was taken
down from the cross and laid in a tomb, and a great
stone was rolled across the entrance of the tomb.
(J.Rubin) Crucifixion and Death ( 30 AD - Friday) He explained to them that his death was necessary because it would establish a new covenant between God and man, and it would be the disciples' duty to spread Jesus' teachings after he had gone. He took bread and wine, blessed it and gave it to his disciples saying, "This is my body...this is my blood". (Bible)
This is why as Christians we receive the Holy Communion; it is a reminder to us of the last supper and to spread Jesus' teachings. It has also become the key component of the Christian mass (prayer service) with the priest stating the very same words. The Last Supper By Leonardo Da Vinci This is how Jesus attracts followers through his deeds (both because his actions are good/just and because of his power) and proved that he "practiced what he preached".

Thurston, Herbert. "Apostles' Creed." The Catholic Encyclopedia. Vol. 1. New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1907. 21 Feb. 2013 <http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/01629a.htm>. Early on the Sunday morning, Easter Sunday, a group
of women disciples went to the tomb and found the
stone rolled back and the body gone. Soon after this
discovery Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene and to
the disciples, and the news quickly spread that Jesus
returned from the dead. (J.Rubin)
Jesus' resurrection is a
matter of great importance for Christians, for the
Christian faith is based on the resurrection of Christ.
