Jesus Christ is known to Christians as the son of God, and is the primary figure in both the Christian/Catholic religions. Jesus Christ’s life, word, and miracles can be found in the New Testament of the Bible. He was born between 7 and 2 BC and died between 30 and 33 AD. Also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth he grew up as a Jewish teacher who preached his message orally and had disciples who later wrote the gospel (good news/word of God.) He was also baptized by John the Baptist and crucified in Jerusalem on the orders of the Roman, Pontius Pilate. According to biblical fact Jesus' crucifixion enables all Christians entrance to heaven because Jesus came and died for their sins.

The most notable part of Jesus' life is perhaps his birth which many known as the Nativity story. His mother the Virgin Mary and her soon to be husband Joseph were on their way to Bethlehem to register in the census. When they reached Bethlehem they attempted to find an inn because Mary went into labor. However, there were no rooms to be had. Therefore Joseph laid marry down in a manger where she gave birth to Jesus swaddled in cloth surrounded by barn animals with the North Star shinning above them guiding the three wise men to bring gifts to baby Jesus. Great angels came down and told the neighboring shepherds of the good news; a savior was born.
