According to Christianity, Jesus Christ was a Hebrew preacher who rooted the religion of Christianity, and is deeply worshiped by his followers. Devotees refer him as the Son of God.

According to biblical gospels of St Matthew, St Mark, and St Luke, Jesus took birth from Mother Mary in Bethlehem during the reign of Herod the Great while some devotees believe in his virgin birth.

Virgin birth of Jesus is believed due to some portents during his birth like appearance of a bright star. Childhood of Jesus was spent in Nazareth with his parents Joseph and Mary.

Jesus grew up and later was baptized by John, the Baptist in River Jordan in very young age. After being baptized, Jesus started preaching and spreading the wave of spiritualism all around the country by merely wandering through out the country.

He also taught that salvation depended on doing God's will rather than adhering to the letter and the contemporary interpretation of the Jewish Law. Such a precept angered the hierarchy of the Jewish religion.

Later in c.ad 29, Jesus along with his disciples moved to Jerusalem. There he was renowned as preacher and miracle-worker and was applauded by the devotees as the Messiah. After preaching through out the Jerusalem, one day Jesus gathered his disciples to participate in the Last Supper. At this meal, he instituted the Eucharist.

Just after the last supper, Jesus was arrested by agents of the Hebrew authorities along with Judas Iscariot and was summarily tried for agitation by the Sanhedrin, who handed him over to the Roman procurator, Pontius Pilate. Finally Jesus was mercilessly crucified by Roman soldiers at Golgotha.

After his death, his body was buried in a sealed rock tomb and it is believed that Jesus ascended into the heaven, forty days after his resurrection.
