When did Jesus come?
Although I suspect this isn't what you were looking for, according to scripture Jesus came "in the fullness of time," which is to say, when everything was prepared and ready for God's mighty act of salvation in Christ Jesus. On a more local focus, no one knows when Jesus was born. There are suggestions that it may have been in the spring, but those guesses can only be made based on assumptions about other things. One of those is that the star seen by the wise men had been a comet, so scientists programmed a computer to search the skies around AD 0000. They came up with Jesus being born in 4 BC! (I find that amusing.) It is also fairly certain that Jesus was not born on December 25, 0000. Because no one knows when he was born, the church established December 25 as a day to celebrate his birth. That date was chosen by the western church because it was a festival day for pagans, and missionaries found it more productive to "baptize" a date already being used to celebrate light and life, than to try to create something else from whole cloth (so to speak). Eastern churches actually celebrate Christmas on January 6.

No one but God knows when Jesus is coming. You should not wait for Jesus to come. You should tell other people he is coming and preach about god's love for his children. Also …Jesus will come in the blink of an eye. So BE READY. Answer Jesus said only the Father knows. Answer: we do not know. we try to predict. I know you feel like "but thsi time it REALLY IS HAPPENING. But I can strongly assure you, with evidence from the Bible, the only reliable truth (you can check its historical reliability if u want) that only The Father (our God) knows. People who criticise the Bible predict based on numbers in the Bible, so when Jesus doesn't come, they try to say that Jesus isn't real or he lied! That's absurd! The Bible is true, THE TRUTH. These predictions may sound like they're true, but I have just had an amazing awakening with this same problem. Jesus loves us. We are his children, not his slaves. As his children, out of gratitude for what he did when we were sinners, and still are, we will serve Him. NOT because we have to. But you ask: "How do I know when it is God speaking to me, asking something of me?" The answer: " For God is not a God of disorder but of peace." -1 Corinthians 14:33 If you are feeling stressed about it, pray first. If you are still feeling lost, or feel like now is not the right time... If you are questioning whether it is God or not, think of these things: 1. Will this truly help people? 2. Will this cause stress to people? 3. Am I coming on too strong? 4. Would God really want me to do this, for my own good, theirs and His? 5. Will this follow Jesus' example? I tell you these things as pure advice, and out of pure experience. I AM NOT perfect, but I have learned from the Perfect. He is my strength. In Him, not ahead or before him; IN HIM I FIND peace... SO DON'T WAIT TIL "JESUS IS ABOUT TO COME." BELIEVE NOW. NOW IS THE TIME. The peace you wll feel is indescribable.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJrcwzBlaXw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3IdRkylxaI Amazing videos about God's love for us.... there is no necessary reason to predict when you already know that we will never know Answer: Jesus gives us a chronology of things to look for in Matthew 24 , before the nations of the world will look up and see Him coming. The very moment of His coming is found in verses 30 and 31 : "And THEN shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven: and THEN shall all the tribes [nations] of the earth MOURN , and THEY SHALL SEE the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with Power and Great Glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." Bible prophecy refers to this time as " the Day of the Lord " -- the time of GOD's WRATH coming on the earth. The time when He wrests the rulership of the earth away from man and the god of this world , whom man chose to bow to, worship and obey since the beginning. Of that time... the Bible tells NOT TO WISH FOR IT . "...There will be wailing in all the streets and cries of anguish in every public square... There will be wailing in all the vineyards, for I WILL PASS THROUGH YOUR MIDST , says the LORD. WOE to you who long for the Day of the LORD! Why do you long for the Day of the LORD? That Day will be DARKNESS , not light ." (Amos 5:16-18 NIV) God's servants are told to EXPECT Him. And the Bible is very clear as to the time they are to LOOK UP to see Him. It will be the very same time that all the rest of the world will look up in horror and dread -- when THEY SEE HIS SUN-LIKE , BRILLIANT SELF CUTTING THROUGH THE DARK CLOUDS THAT WILL BE COVERING THE EARTH! Jesus tells us that the days of global distress [Great Tribulation] that shall oppress the world before the time of His coming; "the Day of the Lord," will have to be " cut short "... or all life on earth will cease to exist : "...there will be Great Distress [KJV: Great Tribulation], unequaled from the beginning of the world until now -- and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, NO ONE WOULD SURVIVE , but for the sake of the elect [the chosen of God] those days will be shortened ." (Matt.24:21-22 NIV) Jesus tells us that all during this time... there will be many false sightings, stories and hoaxes by people that "He has come back!" " At THAT TIME [the time of the coming Great Tribulation] if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'There He is!' DO NOT BELIEVE IT . For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect -- if possible. "See, I HAVE TOLD YOU AHEAD OF TIME . "So if anyone tells you, 'There He is, out in the desert,' DO NOT GO OUT ; or, 'Here He is, in the inner rooms,' DO NOT BELIEVE IT ." (verses 23-26) The world is not in this "prophesied Distress," yet. The "cutting short" of the coming global life-threatening Great Tribulation will be accomplished by the " darkening of the earth " by the CLOUDS Jesus mentions in Matthew 24:30 and the other prophecies about "the Day of the Lord." "...for the Day of the LORD is coming. It is close at hand -- a Day of darkness and gloom, a Day of CLOUDS and blackness..." (Joel 2:1-2 NIV) "The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood BEFORE the COMING of the Great and Dreadful DAY OF THE LORD ." (verse 31) Jesus pinpoints this time a little more for His servants in His chronological Matthew 24 prophecy: " IMMEDIATELY AFTER the Distress [the Great Tribulation] of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken." (Matt.24:29) This verse precedes the chronological moment of Jesus' coming [verses 30-31]. The Bible is crystal clear as to what to look for, to absolutely KNOW when Jesus is coming. The entire world shall be in an unprecedented distress and upheaval that will threaten to end all life upon it. This will cause God to "shorten those days" with a global cloud cover [probably including life-threatening nuclear fallout]... and other disruptions of "nature," like meteor and asteroid showers, and earthquakes. These things will "cut short" man's activity on earth, to prevent him from bringing about the ultimate and inevitable conclusion of his Satan-guided insanity... the utter destruction of the earth. This is when Jesus is coming . Other prophecies speak of a " man of sin " [the Beast] to be revealed before Jesus comes [II Thess.2:1-3]... who will rule during the Great Tribulation for 3 1/2 years [Rev.13:5]. Some people call him "the Antichrist"... although the Bible doesn't. Also , the Two Witnesses are prophesied to give their testimony for the 3 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation in Jerusalem... whom the "man of sin" [the Beast] will kill at the end of that time [see Rev.11]. Jesus' servants are "looking for it"... expecting it. Darkness across the face of the planet. They're looking for and expecting His brilliance to cut through this cloud cover as He approaches -- a Brilliant Light that the whole world will see and not be able to miss: "...His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance." (Rev.1:16 NIV) It will be the only Light that it shall have seen for awhile by that time: "I watched as He opened the SIXTH SEAL . There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red , and the stars in the sky fell to earth ... The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place . "Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man HID IN CAVES and AMONG THE ROCKS OF THE MOUNTAINS . They called to the mountains and the rocks, 'Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the Throne and from THE WRATH OF THE LAMB! For the GREAT DAY OF THEIR WRATH HAS COME , and who can stand?" (Rev.6:12-17 NIV) Jesus will come when the earth is covered in darkness . When stars fall from the sky, the earth shakes mightily... when mountains and islands are moved out of their places -- and when everyone left alive on earth scatters to hide in caves and the moving mountains; anything to get away from the approaching Light . His servants are still looking for that day. The Bible, however, tells them not to "long for it" [to yearn or hunger for it]. Because it won't be a pleasant day [other than to save them from their persecution, pain and suffering]. It will be a desperate time of struggle and survival for all life on earth. Until that day comes... Jesus' servants have the "good news" of the Kingdom of God to preach... of the Peace and Harmony that will rule on earth when man's rule... and his god... are removed. And they have a " warning " to give the nations of the earth regarding the coming clouds and darkness that will precede "the Day of the Lord's" coming.
Answer . The historical Jesus came from Nazareth though according to scripture he was born in Bethlehem. Christians believe that, as part of the Holy Trinity, he had an …existence before his birth on Earth, so he therefore came from Heaven to Earth. . Answer . He was sent by the Father.
Jesus promised His disciples that He would come again. John 14:1-3says, "Let not your heart be troubled...In My Father's house aremany mansions; if it were not so, I would hav…e told you. I go toprepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, Iwill come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, thereyou may be also." As the Bible says, Jesus will come again someday, and the world aswe know it will come to an end. There are many ideas and opinionsabout the end-times, but the Bible gives very few details ofexactly what will happen. Most questions do not have a clear answerin the Bible. Instead, the Bible advises us to be spirituallyprepared for judgment at any moment and to put our trust in Godthat He will make everything right in the end.
Jesus said no person knows the day or the hour of His return, not even Himself while He was here on earth. Only the Father knew at that time. We see in this that Christ allow…ed certain aspects of His deity to be set aside, "Who thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." Philippians 2:6,7. Christ warned against being fooled by those who would claim to know the time of His return or that He had actually come. He said "Believe them not." Only God the Father knows when Christ will return:- Mat 24:29-31,36 KJV Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: [v. 30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven : and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory . [v. 31] And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. [v.36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. . Mar 13:19-27, 32-37 KJV For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. [v.20] And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved : but for the elect's sake , whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days . [v. 21] And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: [v. 22] For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. [v. 23] But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. [v. 24] But in those days, after that tribulation , the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, [v. 25] And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. [v. 26] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory . [v. 27] And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. [v.37] But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. [v. 33] Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. [v. 34] For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. [v. 35] Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: [v. 36] Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. [v. 37] And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. . Jesus specifically says no man will know, and to watch and pray until that day comes. Jesus will be coming very soon. He will come when we are not expecting it. He might come this minute. He might come a minute later, a hour later. So accept Jesus into your heart (believe in him and change your ways and life) before it is too late. No one really knows when or even if he will come back, but his name is spelled either Jezus or Jesus not jessus.. well to tell you the truth its not jesus it emmanuel and when he dos retern he will have a new name and only he will know it.
two days after he was crucified
Jesus came back from the grave on Easter morning.
One thought: There are a few scriptures to consider when answering this question: Before he came to earth: * He was God's first creation(Colossians 1:15; Revelation 3:…14; Proverbs 8:29+30) and God's son (Matthew 3:16, 17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21, 22). * He, therefore, was in heaven with God before he came to earth (John 3:13)(John 8:23+42+58)(John 6:38, 62)(John 17:5+24) and was sent to earth by God (John 12:49)(John 6:38)(John 1:18) Once on earth: * He was born in Bethlehem(Luke 2:4-7)(Matthew 2:1)(Micah 5:2), but moved to Egypt with his family while still a baby(Matthew 2:13-15; Hosea 11:1) * He then moved to Nazareth of Galilee and was raised there(Luke 2:39)(Mark 1:9)
the human race was in terrible condition. Jesus came to save us from our sins so that we could live eternaly with him in heaven, if of coarse we truly have followed him as bes…t we could. as said in a very popular bible verse: "for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son so that whoever may believe in him shall not perish but have ever lasting life." ---John 3:16 Alternative answer: To answer this question we need to understand the original intent God had for man. In Genesis, God creates man and gives him dominion - ruler-ship over all the earth. Now God who created the heavens and the earth (Gen 1:1) is the overall owner, a landlord of sorts, who gives man the authority to rule in His name. God, who is Lord of all, gives authority to man to rule His domain. God's original intent was not to bring a religion. God's original intent was to bring a kingdom. A kingdom is 'the rule and reign' of a king within his dominion - hence; 'king-domain' Within a kingdom, the king (God) has complete authority and can delegate that authority out to whom ever he chooses (man), for that person or persons to steward that which is given in the name of the king. In a kingdom, it's all about authority. In a kingdom I may have the power to rule over an area or territory, but unless I have authority from the king to do so, I will get arrested and imprisoned for acting outside of the will of the king. If the king does not act, but simply lets it happen, then the king is technically allowing me to have authority over that land. This is vital to know to be able to help understand. When the serpent decived Eve and then Adam into eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he had successfully tricked man into giving over his authority. Adam should have said no and enforced his God-given right over the serpent, but in agreeing to the serpents suggestions he aligned himself under the serpents authority. That God-given authority had now passed from the man to the serpent. The original plan had ended. A new plan had to be made to return things to it's original intent (because God makes things for a purpose, not for just random use). From That moment on, God made it clear that He would crush the head of the serpent (the head represents authority - e.g. a 'headmaster' of a school is the authority of that school), but that it would be done through the seed of the woman. Now when God talks about a seed, He's talking about a process - something small that grows with time and develops until it reaches full maturity. God didn't send His son Jesus there and then, as there was a process that needed to happen first. All throughout the Old Testament, God speaks of His 'Messiah' - a chosen one who would one day bring salvation to mankind. This chosen one was no ordinary person, he had to do some very interesting things - for one, he would rule the nations with an iron sceptre. He was to be a king! An everlasting king. God uses the Jewish nation as the seed to bring forth this chosen one. The interesting thing about the Jewish nation, is that their customs, traditions and culture were instructed by God, and they all in one form or another give reference to Jesus as a type or shadow of things to come. God's seed grows and develops. He teaches them His ways. But why hadn't Jesus come yet? God's timing was perfect, He was waiting for things to be in place. When Caesar Augustus began his rule of the Roman empire, suddenly everything kicked into gear. Astronomically, signs were in the skies proclaiming the birth of a 'super-king' by the king planet, Jupiter, circling the king star, Regulus. The Roman Empire had taken control of Judea and of Jerusalem. The authority held by the Priests of the temple was taken away, as they now had to check with the Roman Governor before they could even execute a man. By why at this time? To reveal God's original plan and intent - a kingdom. Rome was very different from other kingdoms that had ever been seen before. Other kingdoms like the Babylonians would invade a city, kill it's people and take all the spoils of war back to their country/city (as demonstrated in the Jewish exile of Daniel's day). But the Romans took a different approach. They would invade a city, and then bring their culture and Roman rule to that place - they would make it 'like Rome', and the newly conquered people could become citizens of the Empire. When Jesus came, he spoke mostly about one subject - and it wasn't salvation! Matthew 5:17 gives us the first mention of his mission; 'From that time Jesus began to preach and say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand"' Jesus was proclaiming a kingdom. Not a religion, but the rule and reign of heaven - of God. What that meant, was that now one had come to take back the authority taken from man and reestablish the rule and reign of God on the earth. Where ever Jesus went, he healed people, brought order back to their lives whether it be sight restored or demons driven out and that person being able to sit in his right mind. He did this as he was God as a man. He had authority as long as he stayed in the will of he king - God. Of course, this gets much much more detailed, but I'm hoping to summarise it for you. When Jesus faced Pilate, Pilate asked him if he was a king, as there had been rumours of Jesus being the king of the Jews. Jesus replies that it was for this purpose that he came. And he hadn't even been to the cross yet. You see, because Jesus lived his whole life under the authority of God, never stepped out of God's will and never gave his authority away like Adam did, he was not under the same curse as Adam - to die. So when he gave himself up on the cross, death literally had no power over him, and after 3 days had to let him raise again! By doing this, he not only obeyed his Father (God) in everything he did, but because there was no authority to keep him in death, he successfully took back the authority taken by the serpent from Adam. The serpent didn't have the authority to stop it. So now, Jesus holds the authority to rule and reign over the earth. This is where he Roman Empire model comes in. Jesus gives his authority to those who are submitted to his will - those who have willingly (not forced!) aligned themselves under the authority of Jesus. That authority is used to bring God's ruler-ship back to the earth, to bring Godly order back to people's lives and steward God's domain. Because of Jesus, people can become citizens of his kingdom by aligning themselves with his will - the king's will. Now, just like the Roman Empire, God's plan wasn't to go and force people into submission Jesus' disciples/citizens are to go and bring that kingdom influence to the world - which is God's domain, not by killing everything and dragging the spoils of their war back to their church, but by going into a place and influencing it with Godly culture and principles, to walk with integrity, to value others and to bring Godly order the the domain around them. In Exodus, God tells Moses that his plan is to make 'a kingdom of priests'. In Revelation, the last book of the bible, God proclaims that He has made for himself 'a kingdom of priests'. A priest is someone who ministers to God, aligns himself under God's authority and proclaims God's words to the people. He brings Glory to God. So why did Jesus come when he did? He couldn't come before, as there wasn't a good representation of kingdom, and God had to demonstrate His ways - that He was a loving Father to the people who valued them and wanted to save them and give them great things as any good father would do, but that He was also a mighty King who was to be obeyed. God's seed that He spoke about at the beginning had grown fully, and because of it, we can now eat the good fruit from a matured and solid Jesus Christ.
3 days after he died, Jesus is said to have been resurrected into heaven. Jesus died on good Friday and was resurrected on Easter Sunday. Theologians say Jesus would've been a…round 31 years old when he was crucified.
To die on the cross and pay for our sins so that we could have eternal life and not all go to hell. He had to experience what is was like as a human die for us and then he tol…d others about God while he was in hell. He basically died for us because the wages of sin is death we are all sinners and we need forgivenes.
Jesus said that even he did not know the date of his return.
Jesus is 3 people : The father (God), The son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit (the thing that is inside you that talks to you like it is not good to do that or you're doing the r…ight thing!) He is all 3 of those people which seems quite strange, but he is God and he can do or be anything. He was a spirit at first in heaven then he came down as a man to earth to get more followers and to die on the cross for our sins. He died on the cross and went in the tomb for 3 days (those days he was in hell and the devil did bad things to him and he could have gotten angels to get him out of there but he loves us so very much he didn't). After the 3 days he went back to heaven! Jesus is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, Mary, and lived a perfect life. When he was 30, he began teaching to the people in the area and gained disciples. After 3 years of ministry, He was crucified and died, and on the third day He rose again. These actions atoned for the sins of the world and proved that He is God. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, which is near Jerusalem. However when He was young his parents moved to a town called Nazareth in Galilee, still in Israel.
In Jesus Christ
He was and is God and the son of God, and he came from heaven.
In New Testament
Because God made him so: Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. (Acts 2.36) … If you tackle it with a historical perspective, the title "Christ" got added to Jesus' name from the Greek Î§ÏÎ¹ÏÏÏÏ (ChristÃ³s), meaning "Saviour." "Christ" is simply a Europeanized dilution of the original Greek, in which some of the New Testament was written. It was an identifier, since, like in all cultures, "Jesus" wasn't a totally unique name. It was simply explaining "Jesus the Saviour" to add perspective, so that people would know they weren't talking about "Jesus the farmer" or "Jesus mason." It's somewhat like calling someone "Handyman Bob" because you've also got a business associate named Bob.
In New Testament
Jesus came from heaven. Jesus is eternal and has been forever. At the appointed time Jesus came to earth born as a human baby so that He could die for mankind's sin. That was …His primary mission. While He was on earth He showed mankind what the Father in heaven was like as Jesus and the father are the same (Both are God). After Jesus died on the cross for our sin and was buried and then resurrected the third day, He spent 40 days on earth showing Himself to certain persons proving that He had resurrected from the dead and then He was taken back up into heaven to be with the Father and to be our High Priest, ministering to us from there. When He left He sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in believers and be their helper/comforter. Jesus is coming back again some day soon. Are you ready for Him to return? You need to be "Born Again" into God's family in order to go to heaven. Just being good or working your way to heaven will not work. Romans 10: 9-10 tells us, "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
