Jesus Christ lived on earth for a mere 33 years, yet had a profound impact on world history. Much of what we know about Jesus Christ is based on the 4 gospels written many years after his death. There are many gaps in the life of Jesus, but it appears the most significant years of his life were the last 3 years. During this time he travelled widely spreading his message and teachings

On Jesus Christ

“Jesus accepted a mortal body so he could reveal man’s immortality. Jesus accepted a man’s consciousness so he could fulfill the divine consciousness. Jesus accepted bodily pain so he could offer the world eternal joy. Jesus accepted betrayal so he could teach the world the meaning of forgiveness.”
