Jesus Christ


Almost all scholars accept that Jesus Christ existed. They disagree over how effectively the Jesus in the Bible represents Jesus as a historical figure. 1)


Most Jews believe that Jesus Christ did not fulfill Messianic prophecy and was not the Messiah. They also deny that Christ was resurrected or divine. 2)


Nazareth had a population of roughly 200–400 individuals at the time of Jesus' birth. The town is literally a joke in the New Testament, as evidenced in the Bible when someone exclaims, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”. 3)


In Islam, Jesus, or Isa, is regarded as a prophet and a Messiah. According to Islam, Jesus was born of a virgin, but he was not the Son of God. Most Muslims believe that God raised Jesus from the dead and that he was never crucified. 4)


From the age of 12 to 30, Jesus worked as a carpenter, which implies he was a day laborer for 18 years. 5)

Alone Time

Jesus, too, required “alone time”. Jesus was frequently mentioned in the Gospels as needing to withdraw from the throng. The Eremos Cave, where he spent some time, is the source of the words “desolate” and “hermit”. 6)

Changed His Mind?

According to certain experts, Jesus did not desire to die. “Remove this cup from me,” Jesus pleads in the Garden of Gethsemane, and “my soul is sad even unto death”. 7)


To demonstrate Christ's position as a cosmic King, Byzantine painters liked to depict Him as a juvenile incarnation of Zeus. 8)

Drinking Too Much

Some of Jesus' adversaries in the Bible accuse him of imbibing excessive amounts of wine (Matthew Chapter 11, verse 19). 9)

Long Hair

Even throughout his ministry, when he would have had a more “natural” appearance, Jesus most likely did not have long hair. Long-haired Jewish males were more likely to have made a Nazarite vow, which Jesus did not. 10)


Jesus was labeled a radical during his day because he talked to women, spent time with sinners, and permitted his followers to pick grain on the Sabbath. 11)


Because Jesus was a Jew, he very definitely possessed Jewish characteristics such as olive complexion, brown eyes, and black hair. 12)


Scholars estimate Jesus stood around 5 feet 5 inches (1.7 meters) tall, which was the normal height for an adult male at the period. 13)


Most Jews used just one name during Christ's time, which may be followed by the phrase “son of…” or the person's hometown, which is why Jesus is sometimes referred to as Jesus of Nazereth. 14)

Solar Eclipses

Scholars record two solar eclipses at the period of Jesus' death: one in 29 AD and one in 33 AD. According to the Christian Gospels, the heavens darkened after the crucifixion, implying that his death coincided with one of these eclipses. 15)


Jesus Christ was arrested and tried by the Sanhedrin. Pontius Pilate condemned him to be crucified and scourged. 16)

I Am Thirsty

“I am thirsty,” Jesus stated before dying. He was provided wine laced with myrrh or gall to drink as a response. He turned it down. 17)

Mary Magdalene

According to Mark and John's gospels, Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene initially after his resurrection. She was a part of his ministry from the beginning to the end, and she is referenced more frequently than most of the apostles. 18)

Six Hours

After being hanged on the cross for six hours, Jesus died. 19)

After Being Crucified

After Jesus was crucified, Roman soldiers divided his clothing among themselves and drew lots for his robe. 20)


Torture in Christ's day was intended to psychologically destroy someone before they died as a result of physical wounds. 21)

Discussion About Reasons

While most academics believe that Christ's crucifixion was unavoidable, they dispute on the reasons behind it and the environment in which it occurred. 22)

Via Dolorosa

The journey Jesus travelled to his crucifixion is known as the “Via Dolorosa,” which translates to “Way of Grief” or “Way of Suffering” in Latin. 23)


Because the Romans thought it would be too horrific to crucify someone in town, they forced individuals to carry their own cross to the outskirts of town, which in Christ's case was to Golgotha. 24)


The term “crucifixion” literally means “being nailed on a cross”. 25)

Cicero About Punishment

According to the Roman orator Cicero, “crucifixion is the most terrible and frightening of all penalties”. 26)

Anointed One

“Christ” is a term derived from a Greek word that means “Anointed One”. 27)


Despite Pilate's claim that he did not find Jesus guilty and gave the Jews the option of saving Jesus, they chose to save a murderer named Barabbas and crucified Jesus.28)

Look After Mary

While hanging on the cross, Jesus instructed his followers to look after his mother, Mary. 29)


The halo that frequently graces the heads of Christ and other saints in works of art was originally a characteristic of the sun deity (Apollo or Sol Invictus). It was appropriated for depictions of Christ to demonstrate his celestial authority. 30)
