In the Christian gospels, Jesus' career starts with his baptism by John the Baptist in the region of Palestine and Transjordan, near the Jordan River, and finishes in Jerusalem, following the Last Supper with his followers. The gospel writers record that Jesus was baptized after he had been tempted by the devil in the wilderness.
The Bible does not mention any specific date for when or where Jesus was born, but estimates range from around 6 BC to 4 AD. He was likely born in late September or early October, since the Jewish holidays of Yom Kippur and Sukkot fall in the middle of the year. His birth was probably also in Judea, since the New Testament records that he was raised in that region.
When Jesus was twelve years old, his father Jacob sent him to live with his other brother Joseph in Israel. There is no evidence that at this time he started to do miracles, preach sermons, or teach classes.
It is known that during his stay in Joseph's house, Jesus learned the trade of carpenter from his uncle. In addition to building homes, carpenters built churches and other religious institutions. It is possible that Jesus used his skills to make money so he could spend it on helping those in need, rather than saving it.
The baptism of Jesus is often seen as the beginning of his mission, and the Last Supper with his followers in Jerusalem as the conclusion. His ministry lasted for approximately three years, from his baptism to his death on the cross. During that time, he taught them like no other teacher, and performed many miracles to confirm his identity as the Son of God.
In addition to these events, the New Testament also mentions several others that have been interpreted by Christians over the centuries as markers of Jesus' start of his mission. For example, some historians believe that the journey of Jesus across the desert with his disciples after his baptism is evidence that he began his mission immediately after this event.
Others say that his teaching throughout Judea and Galilee before he went to the desert shows that he was already doing what we would now call a "ministry". Finally, some point to the fact that he did not begin his ministry until after the crucifixion and burial because it was only then that he could be claimed as a prophet or a king by his followers.
After considering all these facts, we can conclude that the baptism of Jesus is when his public life begins. From there, he teaches in the temple area for several months and performs many miracles to prove that he is who he claims to be.
Judea in Roman times According to the gospel narratives, Jesus' ministry began in the countryside of Roman Judea, near the Jordan River. The time was approximately 5 B.C.-A.D. 30.
His baptism and miraculous deeds began immediately after his birth, but he spent most of his childhood living with his parents. He returned home occasionally to teach at the temple, but for the most part he traveled around Palestine seeking justice and breaking down racial divisions.
His final trip to Jerusalem took place in A.D. 30, on his way to his crucifixion. There is evidence that many people accepted him as a prophet, so it is possible that he started preaching during this trip. But it is also possible that he had been preaching for some time and now used this trip as an opportunity to expand his reach even further.
Jerusalem During his time in Jerusalem, Jesus preached many messages from the temple area. Then, after being accused by the Pharisees of violating Jewish law by doing miracles outside of the temple, he left for Galilee.
It is estimated that Jesus preached about three thousand sermons during his life. This means that he averaged one sermon every four hours for thirty years!
In the gospels, Jesus' career begins with his baptism by John the Baptist. After being baptized by John the Baptist, Jesus travelled to the Jordan River and was baptized by Peter, following which he fasted for forty days and nights in the Judaean Desert. This early time also features Jesus' first miracle, the marriage at Cana.
Jesus then went into Galilee, where he preached the gospel message while teaching on a regular basis. In Gennesaret (which means "the sea" in Greek), he healed many people who came to him for help. At this point in his ministry, Jesus began to gain followers called "disciples".
After being arrested by the Pharisees and put through trial before Herod, Jesus is sentenced to death by crucifixion. On the day of his execution, he dies at about 3 p.m. According to one account, his body is taken down from the cross and buried in a tomb owned by Joseph of Arimathea. But according to another account, his body is placed in a new tomb that had been cut out of a rock. The women who have been watching over his body go to sleep outside the cave entrance until they are able to inform his disciples that he has died.
On Sunday mornings, Christians around the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, who conquered death and rose again from the dead.
The Baptism of Jesus heralds the start of his public ministry. This occurrence is mentioned in the Canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. It also plays a role in the Gospel of John.
Jesus' baptism takes place after he has been tempted by the devil in the desert. The Bible says that Jesus was praying in the temple area when he was approached by two men who wanted him to use his influence with God to send them ahead to the kingdom of heaven (see Matthew 21:28-31). Jesus refused to go until they had come back from their mission, so the men left him alone for about half of the day. When they returned, they reported that they had seen a spirit come out of him and travel along the Jordan River before it went into a herd of pigs. They thought that this must be what people will say about Jesus when he returns to heaven.
After this incident, Jesus went back to Jerusalem for the Passover. During this time, he taught the people about the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven and healed many who were sick. At the end of his ministry, Jesus was crucified by the Romans along with two other men. He died at the age of 30.
