Jesus Christ (6th BC – 30AD) was the founder of Christianity. His deeds and messages are recorded in the New Testament of the ‘Bible’. He was the son of mother Mary and Joseph. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Jerusalem. He studied the Hebrew Scriptures. During his lifetime, Palestine was in distress. At that time, Jesus preached the message of religious reform and divine love. Due to his extraordinary power and effective teachings, his followers considered him as the ‘Messiah’. But the Roman and Jewish authorities suspected him of being a political revolutionary. He was declared a blasphemer by them and was crucified. Jesus gave the message of peace, brotherhood and humanity. Christianity has the largest number of followers in the world today. The teachings of Jesus were written as the Gospels. Christianity has three broad categories namely: the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Protestant Church.
