"Even people who are not christians believe that Jesus was a great and wise teacher. He was one of the most influential people who ever lived.

The events of his ministry are recorded in the bible in four historical works called the gospels.

Jesus Christ was a great teacher who live in Palestine almost 2,000 years ago. Very little is known about his childhood.(Matthew, chapters 1 and 2 and Luke chapters 1 and 2)When he bacame 30 years of age, Jesus started his ministry to "bear witness to the truth." (John 18:37; Luke 3:21-23)The four historical reporters of Jesus' life focused on his public minstry, the last three and a half years of his earthly ministry sojourn.

During his minstry. Jesus gave his discples the key to dealing with various problems in thier lives. What was the key? It was love. In one of the best-known sermons in history, called the sermon on the mount, Jesus taught his disciples how to show love for fellow humans. He said: "All things, therefore, that you want men to do you, you almost must likewise do to them."(Matthew 7:12)This princples is called the Golden Rule. The "men" that Jesus referred to here include even one' that Jesus s enemies. In the same sermon, he said: "Continue to love your enemies and to pray for those persecuting you," (matthew 5:44)Would not such love solve many of problems that we face today?

Jesus practiced what he taught. He put the interest of others ahead of his own and demonstrated love in action. One day, Jesus and his disciples were ministering to many people, without taking time to eat a meal. Jesus saw the need for his discipled to "rest up a bit," so they headed to a lonely place. But a crowd got ahead of them and were waiting for their arrival. How would you havr responded if you had been in Jesus' position? Well, Jesus "was moved with pity for them" and started to teach them many thing." (Mark 6:30-34) This strong feeling of pity moved him him to offer assistance to others.

Jesus was also a miracle worker. He fed and cured and rasied the dead.(Matthew 14:14-21; 15:32-38, Luke 7:22; John 11:30-45).

Besides micrales he had a purpose. They hepled people to indentify Jesus as the one sent by God.-John 6:14.

Jesus was not just a great teacher who taught love. He indicated that he had a prehuman existence as the only-begotten Son of God. (John 1:14; 3:16; 8:58; 17:5; 1 John 4:9) He also has a posthuman existence, which makes him even more significant to you. The Bible indicates

that Jesus was reaised up and is now enthroned as King of God's Kingdom. (Revelation 11:15) Jesus said: " This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you the only true God, and the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ." (John 17:3; 20:21)

so Jesus came to minster the truth about his and his Kingdom, when heal the sick and raised the dead, it was a preview of what God's kingdom will do in the future if we take in knowledge ans exercise faith in Him.
