According to evidence
Few evidence says Lord Jesus was born in 4-6 BC. He was born in the city of Bethlehem in Palestine. Both his mother and father came from Nazareth and settled in Bethlehem. Here, Lord Jesus was born. His mother’s name was Mary and his father’s name was Joseph. Joseph was a carpenter by profession. It is said that Joseph married Mary after receiving a sign from God the Father. His father died two years before the birth of Lord Jesus. He was brought up by his mother Mary.
Not much info available
However, not much information is available about the life of Lord Jesus from 13 years to 30 years. After this, at the age of 30, Lord Jesus received initiation from John. After this, he started establishing religion. Although the religious pundits who spread superstition strongly opposed him, he was not deterred in the least. After this, the religious scholars complained to King Pontians. Roman Governor Pilate felt that if he did not stop the Lord Jesus, the Jews might revolutionize. For this Lord Jesus was given the death penalty.
Connection with Easter Sunday
The day Jesus was crucified was Friday. When Jesus died after being crucified, He was buried in the grave, but 3 days later on Sunday, Jesus came alive again in the grave, which is known as Easter Sunday. The Jews saw this miracle with their own eyes and the disciples of Lord Jesus spread the teachings of Lord Jesus to the people. At that time a new religion was established, which was called Christianity. Lord Jesus went to heaven after 40 days of being resurrected from the grave.
