I am also going to trace the growth and development of Christianity from thetime of its origin to the present. The last thing I will do is discuss how Jesus is worshipped andrespected in the world today.The life of Jesus is traced directly to the religion of Christianity. It also has to do with thedeath and resurrection of Jesus Christ. After that, his life was not really documented much untilafter his death, it is hard to talk about the exactness of his birth. His life began on the day we call“Christmas”. His mother, Mary, was said to have been a virgin, and his conception was of miraculous conception. She was married to Joseph, a carpenter, from Bethlehem. No stories arereally told of Jesus until he turned 12. Then according to the gospel Luke, Jesus and his parents traveled to Jerusalem for their yearly trip for the Passover. Somehow he and his parentsgot accidentally separated, where he is said to have been found in the Temple talking about theTorah with a rabbi. His parents found that he had an amazing understanding of the Torah and hisanswers astounded them.His life though-out his young manhood are not documented until he went to “John theBaptist” to be baptized, around the age 30. After his baptism, he is said to have gone througha forty-day fasting in the wilderness. The first people to have recognized Jesus as the Messiahwere people in John’s gospel. These people became to be known as his first disciples. First therewas Simon (called Peter), Andrew (Peter’s brother), James, and John (James’s brother).They hadto leave all their possessions and human contacts behind to follow him, and learn his teachings.
