The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, Updated Edition
The religious perspectives on Jesus vary among world religions. Christians believe that through his death and resurrection , humans can be reconciled to God and thereby are offered salvation and the promise of eternal life. In Islam , Jesus commonly transliterated as Isa is one of God's highest-ranked and most-beloved prophets. Islam considers Jesus to be neither the incarnation nor the Son of God.
Islamic texts emphasize a strict notion of monotheism tawhid and forbid the association of partners with God, which would be idolatry shirk. In the Druze faith, Jesus is considered one of God's important prophets and the Messiah. Apart from his own disciples and followers, the Jews of Jesus' day generally rejected him as the Messiah, as do all Jews today. Mainstream Jewish scholars argue that Jesus neither fulfilled the Messianic prophecies in the Tanakh nor embodied the personal qualifications of the Messiah.
Sikhism views Jesus as a high-ranked Holy man or saint. Other world religions such as Buddhism have no particular view on Jesus, and have but a minor intersection with Christianity.
For non-religious perspectives on Jesus, see historical Jesus. Christian views of Jesus are based on the teachings and beliefs as outlined in the Canonical gospels , New Testament letters , the Christian creeds , as well as specific denominational teachings.
These documents outline the key beliefs held by Christians about Jesus, including his divinity, humanity, and earthly life, and that he is the Christ and the Son of God. Although Christian views of Jesus vary, it is possible to summarize the key beliefs shared among major denominations, as stated in their catechetical or confessional texts.
Jesus refers to himself as the Son of God in the New Testament. Christians consider Jesus to be the Messiah Christ and believe that through his death and resurrection , humans can be reconciled to God and thereby are offered salvation and the promise of eternal life.
The five major milestones in the gospel narrative of the life of Jesus are his Baptism , Transfiguration , Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension. Christians not only attach theological significance to the works of Jesus, but also to his name.
Devotions to the Holy Name of Jesus go back to the earliest days of Christianity. Most Christians believe that Jesus was both human and the Son of God. While there have been theological debate over the nature of Jesus, Trinitarian Christians generally believe that Jesus is God incarnate , God the Son , and " true God and true man " or both fully divine and fully human.
Jesus, having become fully human in all respects, suffered the pains and temptations of a mortal man, yet he did not sin. As fully God, he defeated death and rose to life again. According to the Bible , God raised him from the dead. The Quran mentions Jesus by name 25 times—more often than Muhammad  —and emphasises that Jesus was a mortal human who, like all other prophets, had been divinely chosen to spread God's message.
Muslims also believe that Jesus received a Gospel from God, called the Injil. However, Muslims hold that Jesus' original message was lost or altered and that the Christian New Testament does not accurately represent God's original message to mankind.
Despite some major differences, the Quran and New Testament overlap in other aspects of Jesus' life; both Muslims and Christians believe that Jesus was miraculously born without a human biological father by the will of God, and that his mother, Mary Maryam in Arabic , is among the most saintly, pious, chaste and virtuous women ever.
Most Muslims believe that he was neither killed nor crucified, but that God made it appear so to his enemies. With the noteworthy exception of Ahmadi Muslims who believe that Jesus was indeed put on the cross, survived the crucifixion and was not lifted bodily to the heaven, majority of Muslims believe that Jesus ascended bodily to heaven and is alive. Majority of the Muslim population does not consider Ahmadi Muslims to be Muslims and consider them as Infidels due to their unorthodox perspectives.
Some Muslim scholars maintain that Jesus was indeed put up on the cross, but did not die on it; rather, he revived and then ascended bodily to heaven.
Others say that it was actually Judas Iscariot who was mistakenly crucified by the Romans. Regardless, Muslims believe that Jesus is alive in heaven and will return to the world in the flesh to defeat the Antichrist , once the world has become filled with sin, deception and injustice, and then live out the rest of his natural life. Islam rejects the Trinitarian Christian view that Jesus was God incarnate or the son of God , that he was ever crucified or resurrected or that he ever atoned for the sins of mankind.
The Quran says that Jesus himself, when asked by God if he said that people shall regard him and Mary as gods, will deny this. Judaism rejects the idea of Jesus being God, or a person of a Trinity, or a mediator to God.
Judaism also holds that Jesus is not the Messiah , arguing that he had not fulfilled the Messianic prophecies in the Tanakh nor embodied the personal qualifications of the Messiah.
According to Conservative Judaism , Jews who believe Jesus is the Messiah have "crossed the line out of the Jewish community". The Mishneh Torah , an authoritative work of Jewish law , states in Hilkhot Melakhim —12 that Jesus is a "stumbling block" who makes "the majority of the world err to serve a divinity besides God".
Even Jesus the Nazarene who imagined that he would be Messiah and was killed by the court, was already prophesied by Daniel.
So that it was said, "And the members of the outlaws of your nation would be carried to make a prophetic vision stand. And they stumbled. So that all of the prophets spoke that the Messiah redeems Israel, and saves them, and gathers their banished ones, and strengthens their commandments. And this one caused nations to destroy Israel by sword, and to scatter their remnant, and to humiliate them, and to exchange the Torah, and to make the majority of the world err to serve a divinity besides God.
So that it is said, "Because then I will turn toward the nations giving them a clear lip, to call all of them in the name of God and to serve God shoulder to shoulder as one shoulder. And these things spread among the far islands and among the many nations uncircumcised of heart. Traditionally, Buddhists as a group take no particular view on Jesus, and Buddhism and Christianity have but a minor intersection.
However, some scholars have noted similarities between the life and teachings of Gautama Buddha and Jesus. These similarities might be attributed to Buddhist missionaries sent as early as Emperor Ashoka around BCE in many of the Greek Seleucid kingdoms that existed then and then later became the same regions that Christianity began.
Jesus was seen as the saviour and bringer of gnosis by various Gnostic sects, such as the extinct Manichaeism. In the Druze faith, Jesus is considered one of God's important prophets and the Messiah ,   being among the seven prophets who appeared in different periods of history. In the Ahmadiyya Islamic view , Jesus survived the crucifixion and later travelled to India , where he lived as a prophet and died under the name of Yuz Asaf.
In Scientology , the teachings of Jesus are included among belief systems comprising those "earlier forms". Followers of Religious Science consider Jesus to be a teacher of Science of Mind principles, but reject his unique divinity, arguing that every person is equally divine. Slade, Darren M.

To continue to assert that Jesus was the Mashiach goes against the belief that the Mashiach will transform the world when he does come, not merely hint at a future transformation at some undefined time to come Judaism rejects the claim that a new covenant was created with Jesus and asserts instead that the chain of Tradition reaching back to Moshe continues to make valid claims on our lives, and serve as more than mere window dressing.

Life of Jesus in the New Testament
British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Jesus is believed by Christians to be the Christ - the Son of God. This article explains what we know about him from history and the Gospels, presents an audio journey through Jesus's life, and explores his legacy in religion, art and cinema. We know more about Jesus than we know about many ancient historical figures, a remarkable fact given the modesty of his upbringing and the humility of his death. Jesus did not grow up in one of the great cities of the ancient world like Rome or even Jerusalem but lived in a Galilean village called Nazareth. He died an appalling, humiliating death by crucifixion, reserved by the Romans for the most contemptible criminals.
One of the best known and most important references on the life of Christ ever written, Alfred Edersheim's "The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah" is a storehouse of information on the background of the New Testament.

Edersheim divides his work into five sections, or books: Book 1 "The Preparation for the Gospel" Introductory historical, religious, political, and cultural material based on the author's extensive knowledge of Jewish lore and customs. John the Baptist and his message, and the birth and baptism of Jesus. Book 3 "From Jordan to the Mount of Transfiguration" Thirty-seven chapters explore the miracles and teachings of Jesus' early ministry. Book 4 "The Descent into the Valley of Humiliation" A history of the latter part of Jesus' ministry from the Transfiguration to the journey to Jerusalem.

Religious perspectives on Jesus
Recently I read a blog post where the author talked about how the Savior plays a vital role in her daily life. Sooner or later, all of us will need the Savior. We all make mistakes we cannot fix, experience losses we cannot recover, and face pains, persecution, tragedies, burdens, and disappointments we cannot handle alone. No one understands.

Portals: Christianity Bible. The life of Jesus in the New Testament is primarily outlined in the four canonical gospels , which includes his genealogy and nativity , public ministry, passion, prophecy, resurrection and ascension. In addition to these biblical texts, there are extra-biblical texts that Christians believe make reference to certain events in the life of Jesus, such as Josephus on Jesus and Tacitus on Christ. In the gospels, the ministry of Jesus starts with his Baptism by John the Baptist. Jesus came to the Jordan River where he was baptized by John the Baptist, after which he fasted for forty days and nights in the Judaean Desert. This early period also includes the first miracle of Jesus in the Marriage at Cana.

Единственный выстрел, к счастью, прозвучал слишком поздно. Беккер на своем мотоцикле скрылся в узком проходе Каллита-де-ля-Вирген. ГЛАВА 88 Фара веспы отбрасывала контрастные тени на стены по обе стороны от узкой дорожки. Переключая передачи, Беккер мчался вперед между белокаменными стенами.
Она знала, что это. Как и то, что шахта лифта защищена усиленным бетоном. Сквозь клубящийся дым Сьюзан кое-как добралась до дверцы лифта, но тут же увидела, что индикатор вызова не горит. Она принялась нажимать кнопки безжизненной панели, затем, опустившись на колени, в отчаянии заколотила в дверь и тут же замерла.
Поскольку, находясь там, он ничего не смог бы предпринять, у меня оставалось два варианта: попросить его прервать визит и вернуться в Вашингтон или попытаться разрешить эту ситуацию самому. Воцарилась тишина. Наконец Стратмор поднял усталые глаза на Сьюзан. Выражение его лица тут же смягчилось. - Сьюзан, извини .
Скажи. Сьюзан словно отключилась от Хейла и всего окружающего ее хаоса. Энсей Танкадо - это Северная Дакота… Сьюзан попыталась расставить все фрагменты имеющейся у нее информации по своим местам. Если Танкадо - Северная Дакота, выходит, он посылал электронную почту самому себе… а это значит, что никакой Северной Дакоты не существует.
Быстрее. Хейл выслушал все это, не сдвинувшись с места и не веря своим ушам. Хватка на горле Сьюзан слегка ослабла. Стратмор выключил телефон и сунул его за пояс. - Твоя очередь, Грег, - сказал .
Выслушай меня внимательно, - попросил Стратмор. Сьюзан была ошеломлена. ТРАНСТЕКСТ еще никогда не сталкивался с шифром, который не мог бы взломать менее чем за один час.
