Jesus, the Son of God, was born to a virgin named Mary. Mary and Joseph raised the Son of God who came to this earth to provide a way for mankind to have a relationship with God. By dying on the cross, Jesus paid the price for our sins and provided a way for us to spend eternity in heaven with Him. At the age of 33, Jesus began His earthly ministry. His coming was announced by John the Baptist. Jesus spent forty days in the wilderness being tempted by Satan, He was victorious over Satan. He chose twelve disciples who helped Him as He went about the countryside. He was a teacher, telling parables that illustrated a point about how we are to live our lives. He taught about God, Himself, and told about the coming of the Holy Spirit. He performed miracles. He was eventually betrayed by Judas, arrested, crucified, buried, rose from the grave on the third day and then ascended to heaven. One day He will return to earth to establish His kingdom forever.
