     The following biogrraphy of Jesus is built largly from the Gospel record. The Gospels were not written to be a detail account of his life, but a way to see the person of Jesus and his teachings. In fact, John comments that making a detailed listting of all Jesus did would be impossible1. Thus it should be expected that some details will be inconsistant as some "events' described are a composite of the many things that happened during his ministry.

Names and TItles

Variation: Christ.
Variation: The Messiah (NT).2
Greek: Ίησοῦς (Iesous) The Greek form of Joshua, which mean Yahweh saves.3
Variation: Immanuel Which means: God with us.4
     Jesus (NT) was born c 6 BC in Bethleham, Judea; One theory, based on astrologically significant events places it at about April 17, 6 BC.5,6 He was the son of Joseph (Gospel) and Mary (Gospel). Jesus (NT) died by crucifiction est Nisan 14 (Apr 7) AD30 on Calvary (Gulgatha) outside, Jerusalem, Israel.7,8 He was buried for 3 days.
     In the Beginning God (as reprented as Lord God Yahwah (Bible), Holy Spirit (Bible) and Jesus (NT)) created the whole world in 6 days.9 Mary (Gospel) (who was betrothed to Joseph (Gospel)) was told by Gabriel (Angel) that she would give birth to a son, Jesus (NT) by the Holy Spirit (Bible), and was told that her relative Elizabeth (Luke 1) was six months pregnant.10 An Angel of the LORD (Bible) appeared to the shepherds (Luke 2) that were living in the fields near Bethleham and announced the birth of Jesus (NT). The shepherds then went off and found Joseph (Gospel) and Mary (Gospel) with Jesus (NT) lying in the manger. They spread the word of what they had seen and heard, and all were amazed at this.11 He was circumcised on the eighth day and he was given name Jesus, as the angel had named him.12 Jesus was visited by the Magi (Traditionally Melchior, Caspar, and Balthasar) and presented gifts of gold, frankinsense and myrrh.)13,14
After Jesus (NT) was born in Bethlehem, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem looking for him. King Herod I "the Great" (Mt 2) heard about them and asked the Teachers of the Law where the Christ was to be born, to which they replied Bethlehem in Judea.
King Herod I "the Great" (Mt 2) called the Magi and found out when the star had appeared, and sent them to Bethlehem, asking them to report to him so he could come and worship him.
The Magi followed the star and found Jesus (NT) with Mary (Gospel), and they bowed down and worshiped him, and presented him with gifts of gold, incense and myrrh. Having been warned in a dream not to go back to King Herod I "the Great" (Mt 2), they returned home by another route.15
After the Magi left, an Angel of the LORD (Bible) sppeared to Joseph (Gospel) in a dream and told him to take Jesus (NT) and Mary (Gospel) to escape to Egypt because King Herod I "the Great" (Mt 2) was going to try and kill Jesus (NT).16 King Herod I "the Great" (Mt 2), when he realizes that the Magi had outwitted him, orders that all boys in Bethleham and vicinity, two years and under are to be killed in an attempt to kill Jesus (NT).17 King Herod I "the Great" (Mt 2) died Mar/Apr 4 BC.18
After King Herod I "the Great" (Mt 2) died, an Angel of the LORD (Bible) appeared to Joseph (Gospel) in a dream, telling him it was safe to come back. So Joseph (Gospel), Mary (Gospel), and Jesus (NT) came back to Israel. On finding that King Archelaus was on the throne, Joseph (Gospel) was afraid, and withdrew to the district of Galilee, and the town of Nazarith<>.19
Teaching: Jesus spent much of his time teaching the people. We have rec orded two sample longer sermons (The longer 'Sermon on the Mount' 20, and the somewhat shorted 'Sermon on the Plain' 21). I do not think these examples are to portray unique events (or exact transcripts of the events they record), but are examples of what he did throughout is time, and included the major lessons he gave that did not fit elsewhere in the gospel narratives. Jesus (NT) was baptised in the Jordan River by John "The Baptist" (Gospel).22 Jesus (NT) is tempted by Satan (Bible) in the wilderness.23 John "The Baptist" (Gospel) had been put in prison.24 Jesus (NT) travels to Capernaum, Galilee and begins to preach.25 Jesus (NT) calls Apostle Peter (NT), Apostle Andrew (Gospel), Apostle James (NT) and Apostle John (NT) to follow him by the Sea of Galilee.26 Jesus (NT) went throughout at an unknown place teaching in the synagogue, proclaiming the good news, and healing the sick.27 He made Apostle John (NT) Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle James (NT) Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Peter (NT) Apostle. Godhead (Bible) as "Parent" of Lord God Yahwah (Bible), Jesus (NT), and Holy Spirit (Bible).

The Godhead is a construct to help illustrate the concept of the Trinity. The Godhead represents the unified nature of God, whle the Persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit represent the distinct aspect it is revealed through. These person, while show as "children/descendants", this is only due to a limitation in presentation. The three Persons are inherently part of the Godhead in Nature, while distinct from each other in person.

The Person of Jesus has the most complicated connections here, in his incarnate form, he is truely the son of Mary, as he was conceived in her womb, and was born to her. He is the legal (but not biological) son of Joseph, since he had no relations with her until after Jesus was born. These are the primary relations followed in this Genealogy. In addition Jesus (in the Incarnation) could be thought of as descended from the Holy Spirit as the record describes the Holy Spirit as "coming upon" Mary to produce the child (I presume in a meta-physical nature). Jesus, even as pre-Incarnate, is also part of the Godhead. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Andrew (Gospel) Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Matthew Tax Collector Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Philip (NT) Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Bartholomew (NT) Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Thomas Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle James son of Alphaeus Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Thaddaeus (NT) Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Simon the Zealot (NT) Apostle. Jesus (NT) made Apostle Judas Iscarriot (Gospel) Apostle.
