Perhaps this is not the image you are used to seeing represent Jesus Christ.
Many people will see baby Jesus in a cradle in a clean-swept stable.
In fact the people of Jesus community, Nazareth, would have probably thought he was illegitimate.
The Son of God didn't get much respect in his own earthly lifetime.
Why did Jesus choose to die on a cross? In his own words:
'For God so Loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.'
Jesus suffered and died because of his great love for people. The Jesus Website is dedicated
to telling the truth about who Jesus is and what he really taught about God, life and people.
No matter who we are we have probably heard about about Jesus.
Please take some time to find out more about this man that is central to the Christian faith and revolutionised world history.
