  • 1. Jesus Of NazarethBy: Youssef Awad
  • 2. SignificanceStarting in around 30 AD talk of a man by the name of Jesusbegan to spring through the Roman empire. Little was knownabout the man, but there was one major characteristic. Theman by the name of Jesus declared himself as the Messiahand son of God. Though only a small part of thepopulation, the Jewish people of the Roman Empire began tofollow this man instead of following Roman law. This flippedthe Roman Empire upside down.
  • 3. Why Jesus Was ChosenTo many people of the world, Jesus is known as the son of God and is onlyreferred to when people are discussing religion. It is interesting to look atJesus from a historic point of view and see what impact he had on theEmpire in which he lived.
  • 4. Early LifeJesus was born into poor family and did not have much to begin with.He was a boy under the rule of King Herod. Most of his early life isknown to man. He was born in Bethlehem from the “virgin” Mary andfrom a man named Joseph. Jesus began to preach but did not yetdeclare himself the Messiah.
  • 5. Historical ViewUnder the rule of King Herod many seemed to be somewhat happy.When the word spread to him that there was a baby that may havebeen the Messiah, Herod reacted by ordering the all male babies wereto be killed. Little did the king know this would not help. When Jesusgrew up and began to declare himself as the Messiah, Roman rule wasflipped. It seems as though some very poor, skinny man wasattempting to challenge Roman rule. Once again the Romans reactedby crucifying Jesus on the cross which is later referred to as Jesusdying for our sins.Alles, Gregory D., and Robert S. Ellwood. "Jesus of Nazareth."

  • 6. How He Effected His Own People.Since the Old Testament, The Jews had been waiting for theirsavior to come. Finally Jesus came but something interestingoccurred. Many Jewish people resented Jesus. They though thatthere was no way this man that came from poor family couldhave been the Son of God. The only People that really believedhim were the Apostles. That is just one more thing that Jesushad to deal with.Sources Of Western Tradition Volume one: Perry Pedan Von Laue. The Hebrews page 25
  • 7. AchievementsFirst of all, we all know Jesus died for our sins. He did in fact have otherachievements though. Jesus was the first single human being to challengeRoman power. This in itself was a huge feat. No one dared to go againstthe Romans. Why did Jesus do this you may ask? Well remember he hadnothing to be scared about. God was on his side.
