Did you know?? Fun Facts About Jesus


Jesus

Did you know??

Jesus started his career working with his dad Joseph in the family business, as a carpenter.

Jesus was descended directly from King David, and King Solomon, Israel’s greatest kings.

Jesus was a fairly common name in the first half of the first century A.D. It means in Hebrew: “God saves”

. Jesus did not have a last name.

Although millions of people celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25, most scholars agree that he wasn’t born on that day. His birthday is celebrated in December because that was the date of the Jewish Festival of Lights, called the Festival of Hanukkah, which fell on 25 to 30 Kislev. Nobody really knows exactly when Jesus was born. Some scholars believe that Jesus may have been born in spring or summer.

Jesus wasn’t actually born in 1 A.D. Most scholars put the date of Jesus’ birth sometime between 7 B.C. and 2 B.C.

Jesus was not white, as most portraits of him would have us believe. Bible declares Jesus’ Jewishness, meaning He likely had light to dark brown skin.

Jesus had 4 half-brothers. James, Joseph, Judas and Simon. Jesus had sisters, but they are not named or numbered in the Bible.

Jesus was about 30 years old when he began His ministry.

Jesus spoke on earth 3 languages: Aramaic was his first language, Hebrew for scholarly questions and Greek on some occasions.

24 of Jesus’ miracles were healing miracles, 10 were nature’s miracle and 3 resurrection miracles.

Jesus had been on the cross from approximately 9:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M., a total of six hours.

Jesus was very poor on Earth but when he died he was buried in a rich man’s tomb.

Jesus’ disciples were teenagers, almost all under the age of 18 and some as young as 15. All were most likely bachelors.

According to the Bible in Hebrews 4:15, Jesus endured every (sexual) temptation that humans face, but without sinning.

According to Matthew 22:30, Jesus said there will be no sex and marriage in heaven.

Jesus Christ started the largest religion in the world – Christianity.


Jesus 2

Enjoying my morning, my coffee steams like a hot spring. The blue sky background so subtle. Not a leaf stirs, just the morning dove announcing your presence. I’ve prepared my habitat; it greets my every thought of You. Not to exploit but to just know Your there.

Jesus, your like my brother….

Miles away, I’m comforted knowing God has sent You to walk with me. Like a big brother, a mentor perhaps, I feel your presence as I sit alone having my coffee. There amongst the early rays, I hear a Swallow – nature knows your close by. I wonder where you are.

What an awesome God we serve! He allows His son to accompany us as we invite him into our hearts. Like a brother, he’s never far from our thoughts.

Feeling guilty, I call my own brother who is bound for another busy day in his world full of ailments. Nonetheless, I worry about his health. So I call on my Other to watch over him. I pray He hears….I’m sure He does!

Jesus though watches over all that pray to Him. Humble in His own right, He needs little introduction or rendering of a billboard. So I pray every morning for the peace He brings so that all around me will benefit. Like my brother, quietly standing in the wings, Jesus is on alert continuously. I’m delighted as He knows I’m writing today about Him and for Him….

I caress the pets, kiss my love, and hop into my truck. While putting it into reverse, I ask Jesus to be with us as we get our day started. So much to do between construction and building books. God, my friends, has given me such an awesome gift!

I hope you enjoy your day too!

What you are reading on my website is the result of a miracle from God. I am not a writer, though I am a messenger. God took a very dyslexic guy from Severna Park, Maryland, who never read or wrote a thing, and told me I was going to write messages to share with others. I do not have a degree, and English was my poorest subject. Trust me, it's only through God that I write. As you read, understand that we all have the ability to receive the gifts that Christ would like us to have, gifts from God. It happened to me, it can happen to you. Let God enter your soul and rule your spirit!

    1. Thank you for your reply! India is just fables. Anyone could claim anything like this. These are not mentioned in any reliable sources, nor can they be verified at all. Being a devout Jew, Jesus would not have studied in a polytheistic religion. If he had, at least it should have been reflected in his teaching, which it is not.

      We know from his public life that just like every other devout Jew, Jesus made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem every year. The last recorded event of Jesus’ childhood was a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. From this we can reasonably assume that he made the pilgrimage during his hidden life too. Even a single trip to and from India that time would be extremely dangerous and difficult no matter what the means of transportation. Also, the trip would be very costly, and Jesus’ family was poor.

      Jesus was known in his community as a carpenter, since it was a Jewish tradition for young boys to learn their father’s trade. His parables were even influenced by his job. He told of building a house on a rock as opposed to sand (Matthew 7:24-27). This is a great indication that Jesus has spent his adolescent years in his own community.

      Finally, if we assume for the argument sake that He came to India and studied some things about India then one would wonder why he ignored and not mentioned any Indian names while mentioning all the prophets of one true God.

  2. What a gorgeous gift you have! I feel it is coming straight from the heart. I remind myself often of Proverbs 18:24 with …there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Thank you for your writing.
