If Jesus and his apostles preached to their neighbors then why don't Christians follow his example and preach to their neighbors?
The word neighbors i believe refers to same descendants. So the Commandment thy shall not covet thy neighbor's house, wives, stuff ..... etc, refers to the their particular tribe. Answer Christians should tell their neighbors about Christ! It is the great commission to do so. But I think today al…l people including Christians have become afraid of rejection and don't want to be labled as narrow minded or religious freeks, bible thumpers and so on. When Christians speak out on issues that plague us these days they are targeted as bigots, prejudiced and hypocrites. Its unpleasant and people don't want to make waves these days but that's exactly what we need and what we need to do. Answer Well, in my brutal experiences Jesus has some unsuitable people to serve on his counsel. They are in fact preaching what they know and exactly what they are before the people. If Jesus is really intending to make a dent in the world with his teachings he must remove his entire staff and replace them with sincere and competent people. I believe Jesus fails to understand that he cannot provide a carbon copy or bandaid as a true remedy to his problems within his ministry. ANSWER Jesus explains the difference in the true believers, which are the (salt of the earth), and the false believers, which you refer to as scum of the earth. The Parable of the Sower and the Parable of the wheat and the tares can be found in Matthew 13. Jesus gives answers to all of your reasons for not wanting to believe. No one wants to take the time and effort to read the Bible. It does require some knowledge. Maybe that is why. "My people perish for lack of knowledge." Answer I believe they do. Answer When Jesus was asked, "and who is my neighbor?" in Luke 10:29 , He responded with the parable of the good Samaritan, the point of which is that anyone in need, even a "natural enemy," is our neighbor and cause for righteous response. Concerned Christians don't "preach" to their neighbors because it isn't a natural form of communication between individuals. "Preaching" is done by "preachers" from behind "pulpits." If the neighbor wants to hear preaching, he can always attend a service with the Christian. People talk to each other, and Christians share the gospel by talking to people about it in an appropriate way. This is what Paul teaches Christians about sharing the word in 2 Timothy 2:24-26 - And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will. A mature Christian will kindly and humbly share the gospel with people they know through polite inquiry and sincere concern; not "preach" to them with bombast, threat or accusation. Exposure to the gospel should arouse one's curiosity (at the very least), not ruffle one's feathers. Beyond talking to people, Christians believe they should live a life of good example, knowing that "actions speak louder than words." They show their approach to life through even the most casual encounters (they'll make you smile by spontaneously moving a misplaced shopping cart out of the spot you want in a grocery store parking lot), being true to Matthew 5:16 - Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Answer Christians believe he is the son of God. Jesus' mother was Mary, a virgin. The Angels came down to her, and told her she was going to have a son named Jesus and that he would be the son of God. God sent Jesus to preach and deliver God's word so that people may have faith all over the world…. Jesus taught by using stories and examples. He healed many sick people who came to him by his touch. Soon, a few high Roman official had gotten afraid that Jesus was getting too powerful and he had drawn too many crowds. So they nailed him to the cross. Christians believe he died for our sins. So all the bad things we have done in our lives may be forgiven by God, and enter Heaven. This is something very short on Jesus' life story. But if you want to learn more, and there is a lot more, the answers are in the Bible. Answer That he is God as a man except without sin. Jesus was sent by the Father to take away the sins of the world and to teach the way to salvation (Eternal Life with God). Answer Christians believe that Jesus is God and He died on the the cross to save us from all our sins. Whoever believes in Him will receive eternal life in Heaven. Answer The whole Bible is about teaching us how to obtain eternal life with God. Jesus' apostles called him teacher. If teaching were not necessary, he would not have had to speak a word to anyone about the way to eternal life. It is our choice whether we accept his message and live according to it - this is God's will. Answer Christians, as the name suggests believe in Jesus Christ. This includes believing what He witnessed about Himself in both word and deed. Christians believe that Jesus was the eternal and almighty God come in the flesh. People who do not believe this central truth are not Christians. No lesser being came and died for the sins of the whole world. No lesser being rose from the dead. No lesser being ascended back to the 'glory I had with thee before the world was.' Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God; that He died for our redemption; that He was resurrected on the third day; that He was raised unto Heaven and sits at the right hand of God; that He is our mediator; that He will return on Judgement Day. These are the basic beliefs of Christians. ( Full Answer )
Because salvation can only be got through believing that Jesus died for the sins of the world.
Because of what he has said and done. [biased answer]. They believe because they are taught to believe.
If you are referring to the act of Jesus' death and resurrection, Christians believe Jesus came back into the same human body in the tomb he was laid to rest.
Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God, the redeemer (salvator) and a British waitress from Glasgow. Moreover the Jews believe that Jesus was a sort of pudding served on Chanukkha. No one really knows what Jesus actually is. To me it seems he is Madronna dressed as a guy. We will never… know. ( Full Answer )
God. The LORD who created all things. The physical form of God. Answer Jesus Christ is the Firstborn of the Father in the spirit (Heb. 1: 6). He is the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh and was foreordained to his great calling before the creation of the world under the direction of the …Father. Christ came by the will of the Father to do his will and it is God who will give unto Jesus the throne of his father David, Luke 1: 30-33. In the beginning, the Word was with God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, John 1: 1, The sign of the dove, as an emblem for the Holy Ghost, was a pre-appointed signal by which John knew he was to recognize that he had baptized the Son of God (see John 1: 29-34). At the time of the baptism of Jesus, John saw the sign and heard the voice of the Father bearing record that Jesus was the Beloved Son, in whom the Father was well pleased (Matt. 3: 13-17). The above was taken from the KJV of the bible. I include it to let people know that True Christians believe that Christ was the son of God. ( Full Answer )
He was a carpenter, following in his 'adopted'' father Joseph's trade. After called to his mission by God he then preached, whenever he had the opportunity, to talk about the kingdom of God.
Us Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the only begotten Son of God, put on earth to open the gates of Heaven for us.

\nYes, Christianity is based on the belief of Jesus Christ being the son of the God of Abraham, who Christians both believe to be true and to be the only God. Christians believe this because they believe the bible to be the word of God and they believe the bible to be true because they believe in a …God.\n. \nIt is a belief that people can only have if they choose to believe, because it requires believing it is true in the first place.

He taught for about 3 years about 2000 years ago. : The above is an estimate, we really don't know. "Jesus" is a Greek name for a person who was probably a real Jewish rabbi named Yeshua. So properly, the question would be "When did Yeshua preach Christianity?" The Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, M…ark, Luke) conflict on the biographical details of this person's life while the teachings are very much in agreement. This leads the majority of Biblical scholars to conclude that the teachings of Yeshua were passed on in oral and in written form prior to the writing of the Synoptics as we now have them. The authors of these books added "biographical details" to the teachings. This is why the celebrations of the life of Yeshua conform to pagan tradition and actually conflict with some of the "biographical details" given. It is not believed that these books were written by eye witnesses to the ministry of Yeshua. Jesus was Jewish and he did not teach Christianity as we know today. Jesus said; " Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or tittle shall nowise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. ." Matthew 5:18-19 It was Paul who taught Christianity as we know of today. Paul said; "Ye are not under the law, but under grace." Romans 6:14. See also; Romans 7:4,6, !0:4, 2 Corinthians 3:14, Galatians 3:13, 3;24-25, 5:18, Ephesians 2:15, Collossians 2:14 . . . ( Full Answer )

Jesus Christ is a God in His own right. He has receive all of the blessings of the Farther. Through His obedience when He was upon the earth. He was also the first of Gods spirit children and the first born of a God/Human relationship. Human are the creation of God,like Adam was born like Jesus was… born,so the birth of Jesus is like the birth of Adam i don't see any connection of Jesus with God.But with Gods permission Jesus was born as his messenger and not his son. Answer Christians believe Jesus is God because they believe what He testified of Himself as well as what others said of Him. Jesus said 'I and the Father are one.' Jesus also forgave sins, only something God could do, and many other things, which spoke of His divinity. In John 17 for example, He spoke of returning to the glory He had with the Father 'before the world was'. It says in John 1"all things were made through Him". Jesus called God His Father because while He was on the earth He lived in a position of having emptied Himself of His glory for a time in order to suffer and die for every man. This implies nothing about Him being merely a man only. ( Full Answer )
Jesus preached monotheism then why do Christians not follow him but believe in polytheism the trinity?
Christians are going the wrong way completely opposite what Jesus preached they have mixed up God,Holy spirit and Jesus himself.Its their thinking that all are one and the same or are equal.. They believe in one GOD the eternal.(sorry which they dont, they believe in trinity). They believe that th…e holy spirit is part of God which is absolutely not,the holy spirit is completely different thing it was following the order of GOD.. And thirdly they believe him to be the son of God a part of GOD who he wasnt but he was the messenger of GOD sent on this earth by the order of GOD.to Believe him to be son of GOD is absolutely foolishness.His birth is like birth of Adam who did not have a father or a mother but was born by the order of GOD.Same way Jesus was born but without a father.

2Pt:1:16: For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. He was the fulfillment of prophecy. Mt:1:22: Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the …Lord by the prophet, saying, Mt:2:15: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. Mt:2:17: Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, Mt:2:23: And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene. Mt:4:14: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Mt:5:17: Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. What prophecy? Mt:1:23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. God prophesied that he would come in human form to save us. Hebrews:10:5-6: 5: Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me : 6: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7: Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 1Jn:1:2: (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) He took the penalty for our sins. Isa:53:5: But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. ( Full Answer )
No. While you may have Christian principles, you cannot call yourself a Christian as a Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ and someone who believes that Jesus is Lord, God the Son and the saviour of us all.. Sadly, there are those who consider themselves a Christian, yet they don't believe the …claims of Scripture regarding His sacrifice on the Cross for their sins. Belief is qualified in the Scriptures. It is not just that one believes that Christ existed. James 2:19 says: "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble." There needs to be something deeper in belief, yet it is simple enough that a child can satisfactorily trust in Christ. . In Romans 10:9,10, it clarifies the necessary belief: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Jesus said: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life." John 6:47. . Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15:3,4, presents a brief explanation of the Gospel, or the good news about Christ: "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures."

Answer The oldest gospel, Mark's Gospel, does not mention the circumstances of Jesus' birth. However, Matthew's Gospel and Luke's Gospel, both of which are otherwise largely based on Mark's Gospel, say that Jesus was born of a virgin during the reign of King Herod the Great. Matthew's Gospel says th…at magi, or "wise men", alerted Herod to the birth of Jesus. In Matthew's Gospel, Joseph and Mary took Jesus to Egypt until after Herod's death, then returnned to Judea and decided to migrate to Galilee. There is no mention of the magi or of the flight to Egypt in Luke's Gospel, instead Joseph and Mary came from Galilee to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, were greeted by shepherds who had been alerted to the birth of Jesus by angels, then returned peacefully to Galilee. Modern Christians manage to believe in most of what is found in Matthew's Gospel and Luke's Gospel. They believe that Joseph and the virgin Mary came from Galilee to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born and greeted by both the magi and the shepherds, then fled to Egypt. After the death of Herod the Great, they returned to Galilee. ( Full Answer )
We Christians believe that Jesus died for the sins of the world on the cross at Calvary, and if we believe he died and rose from the dead we shall be saved.
As a minister of the gospel of over 30 years I will name a few i have come across: 1. He is not a historical person but a fable as King Arthur 2. His sacrifice on Calvary is not necessary for salvation 3. He was only a good man and teacher as Gandhi but not the son of God I could probably name close… to 100 and they all originate from one source; the spirit the Bible calls anti-christ; those who oppose; reject or slander Jesus Christ. To some it's easier and more convenient to believe a lie than the truth; some find it easier to deal with a lie than deal with the truth. ( Full Answer )
First and foremost, Christians believe that Jesus not only died but also rose again, so it is hard to discuss his death without including his resurrection, as that is a very central belief in Christianity. That said.... Jesus death was on our behalf, that is, he died for our sins, He was sinless …but voluntarily took upon himself the sins of the world and suffered and died for them, experiencing not only the physical pain but also the total separation from God that is our just reward for sin.

Most believe that He is the son of God, sent to earth to atone for the sins of mankind. There was no other pure enough to be able to do this for all had fallen short of this great honor. He was the spiritual first born of the Father and so it fell upon Him to take upon himself this great task. It wi…ll be he who will judge mankind at the last days, It is he who rose from the dead to break the bonds of death brought about by the transgression of our first parents. Through his death and resurrection, all mankind will also be resurrected. Another answer Since The Bible is so old and was written in many different languages, everyone picks and chooses what the think is true. That's why there are so many varieties of Christians (Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.). Another answer The Bible says the penalty due mankind for rebelling against God is death, after life. In the book called Hebrews in the New Testament of the Bible it says: Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, The bible also say a person can be saved from death after life and have life after death this is called salvation. In the Bible the way of salvation is through the death of Jesus Christ, which God has accepted as a suitable payment for mankind's rebellion. The first book of John, in the Bible, says: 1Jn 5:11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1Jn 5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. By accepting God's gift of His son (Jesus) you will receive life after death. ( Full Answer )
Yes you can believe that Jesus was a man in history without being a Christian. Jesus of Nazareth is in fact in history. He lived and was put to death by the hands of the Jewish chief priests and the roman government. This is all FACT in history so in essence you can in fact believe in Jesus as a man… without being a Christian. You can also believe that Jesus was a good prophet that came to earth to spread God's word, but he is not the Son of the one true God. This is what Muslims believe. The TRUTH is though... Believing in Jesus as a man in history or as a good prophet means really nothing. Jesus Christ is Christianity. His life is Christianity. If Christianity is not Jesus Christ, then Jesus was a liar, and in essence not a good prophet at all, because he said John 14:9 NIV "Jesus answered: "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?" Jesus is stating that because the disciples have been living and fellowshiping with Him they have already seen God. Jesus is stating that he is God the second person of the Trinity God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, One God three persons. We as Christian do not live to be "good people" Romans 3:10-12 NIV "As it is written: 'There is no one righteous, not one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one." we live to be transformed to be Christ like in everything we do, but we are not saved by good works we are saved by grace through faith Ephesians 2:8 NIV "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-". Being a Christian doesn't mean we are good people, Christ transforms are lives and we strive to be like him. We are human though and we do fail, but that is why Christ came and saved us from this lost world. So the answer to your question is YES you can believe in Jesus as a man in History from Nazareth and YES you can believe that Jesus was a good prophet, but whats the point in that? If you want to know more about who Christ is then blog and I will answer more. In Christ ( Full Answer )
Jesus Christ was resurrected by God The Father on the third day after His death. He is now in Heaven seated at Right Hand of God and will return to Earth in glory.
That Christianity isn't a religion but infact people that believe in Jesus and God and live normal lives believing in god with Jesus by their side?
I believe that "Christianity" is more of a way of life than a religion. Christianity means to be Christ-like, to follow Him and to look to Christ for guidance in your life. A "normal" life is a relative term, though Christians are found in every city, in every profession, and in every skin tone on t…his earth. Believing in Christ's promises does not necessarily make you a monk or nun, and most Christians do continue their lives and live as functioning members of society. The only difference between a Christian and a sinner is one drop of blood, and that's the only thing missing. ( Full Answer )
Based on two Archaeological finds, one a group of 1st century Jerusalem gravesites and another catacombs at the foot of the Mount of Olives, these inscriptions declare He was believed to be Messiah, Lord, and that He had risen from the dead...
Jesus was on earth in order to win salvation for all men if they choose it, to restore the relationship between God and men which was broken at the fall.
The term 'Christian' literally means 'follower of Christ'. While it is possible, and likely, that there are people who affiliate themselves as Christians but don't place their trust in Jesus, it is impossible to actually be a Christian without doing so.
I believe that the Christians thought Jesus was the son of god and was born to take away their sins
Christians believe that Jesus died for their sins on the cross at calvary, and rose again on the third day. Atheists do not believe in Jesus, god or the bible. Answer Christian atheists is a contradiction in terms.
Christians believe that Jesus exits because he was real. I am saying that and I am not a christian.
Christians believe that Jesus is the only son of the true God. He came to Earth as human and sacraficed himself on the cross to save mankind from eternal damnation. Also believed, the Bible is the inspired word of God. As human sinners our only salvation is through Jesus Christ. He tells us in the N…ew Testament that no man goes to the Father but through Him. Only a belief in Jesus will we be able to enter the gates of Heaven. I think of Him as our mediator. He 'represents' us to the Father. ( Full Answer )
It depends on what you mean. All Christians, by definition, believe that Jesus was a part of God and thus God Himself, incarnated in human form through the vessel Mary. The virgin birth and all that. Early Christians were not Christians at all, however- they were mostly a sect of Jesus-following Jew…s who believed that he was the Messiah prophecied in the Old Testament, mainly the five books of the Jewish Pentateuch. These sects, headed up mostly by the original Twelve Apostles and their successors, were persecuted terribly in the area occupied by the Roman Empire (basically everywhere) up until Emperor Constantine in the 4th century CE. There exist throughout history several different odd sects of Christian-like followers who believed a range of things about Jesus- that he was just a prophet and nothing more, that he had a brother; but the tie to God in some way deifying Jesus remained tradition.

Jesus was Jewish. The term Christian was not coined until Acts 11, years after Jesus ascended into Heaven. However, Jesus believed his own teachings because he knew that he was the son of God, he knew that he lived a perfect life, and he knew that he died, atoned for the sins of the world, and that …he was resurrected from the dead. Essentially, he believes his own testimony, but he never called himself a Christian, because Christianity didn't exist during his lifetime on Earth. ( Full Answer )
Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God. When Adam and Eve committed the original sin, God said he would send a savior to open the doors to heaven and all that believe would go to heaven.
They don't, christians believe Jesus is the son of God. Symbolically all humans are sons of God as they have been created by God. Why does God have only one son? Why was a son born to Him after he had already sent many Prophets? Was Virgin Mary (May God be pleased with her) of the kind-flesh… and blood- as God is? Has God died like Virgin Mary (May God be pleased with her)? There arise many questions like these the answer to which is baffling. ( Full Answer )
Christians believe that Jesus suffered fatal torment on the cross, paying the ultimate ransom for our sins. We believe in the empty tomb, that Christ's physical body was resurrected from the dead.

Christians believe Jesus was who he said he was and proved it to the Jews, Romans and Gentiles. He is the Messiah (Jewish Savior) as promised by God to Israel. He is the Son of God making him the God/Man person sent by God himself. Christians and some Jews believe he is the only one who could enable… us to get to heaven and have eternal life. Jesus was specific. If you declare he is the Son of God and turn from your sins to Him you will receive eternal life. Many of the Jews at the time were upset because he equated himself to be God and be equal with God. They crucified him for this reason (note that Jesus is Jewish). Christians believe Jesus/The Holy Spirit/Father God are their authority and His Word (the Bible) is their authoritative guide to live by. See link below ( Full Answer )
I can only answer for myself. I believe that the bible is the insprired word of the one true God. God promised us a savior and a savior He delivered in the form of Jesus. We can do nothing without Jesus. He tells us in the Gospels, that no man will come to the Father without the Son. We have no choi…ce. Jesus died for us and He is our buffer between us and God's judgement. I don't know about you, but I want Jesus standing there when God is passing judgement on my life. ( Full Answer )
Because He was. Christians believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin and is the savior of mankind and a part of the godhead.
Christians believe that mary and joseph went to bethlehem (josephs home town ) to pay the taxes while mary was heavily pregnant (when she first concieved - without having sex - an angel told her to call the baby jesus ) anyway they get to bethlehem and mary is about to have her kid and they need a p…lace to stay and for mary to have her kid but all the inns (motels ) are full so they downgrade and stay in a stable . Mary gives birth to jesus and names him jesus as directed by the angel . A really bright star shines over bethlehem once mary has given birth . Some more angels go and see shepherds in some fields and tell them that a saviour (jesus ) has been born and that the shepherds should follow the really bright star if they want to see baby jesus . So they do . Then several kings (three wise men ) travel from nearby countries carring gifts of gold frankincense and myrrh that they give to baby jesus . And thats te main bits and yeah then he goes and becomes a grown up and then dies because humans screwed up bigtime and he never screwed up (sinned ) so he died so that humans could go to heaven . And then he rose from the dead three days after he died and heaps of people saw him and then he rose up to heaven . ( Full Answer )
The bible is historically correct as it covers the life of Christ in the New Testament. Jesus spent his life in and around Israel. Nazareth was a real place where Jesus spent his early life and Jerusalem has changed little geographically as the place where He was hung on the cross and died.
Jesus is the Son and also the father John 10:30 "My father and I are one" Jesus was God who came down to allow himself to die on the cross for their sins. Jesus was god who was born by Mary. Jesus was god able to die, sleep, hunger, tired and wept. Jesus is fully man and fully god.
Fantasy really. That Jesus was the God who sent Moses as a prophet. That Jesus was the same God who sent John the Baptist as another prophet. That Jesus as God decided to come down himself 6 months after sending John to allow himself to be born by Mary! Because God/Jesus wants to die for the sins o…f the world on the cross. ( Full Answer )
A: Christians are as diverse as any other group of people, so there is a range of views as to what the truth about Jesus was. Some believe that the Bible is wholly without error and so believe that the truth is to be found in the New Testament, although in many cases they make little effort to re…ally find out what the New Testament says about Jesus. Others recognise that the Bible might contain some errors and inconsistencies, but that by and large it is true. Many Christians have a favourite gospel that they nearly always refer to, so they do not even need be aware that other gospels sometimes tell a very different story. Nearly all Christians believe that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary during the reign of King Herod, was crucified under Pontius Pilate either in 30 or 33 CE, and rose from the dead on the third day. They believe that he taught great moral truths and performed many miracles, which are to be found in the gospels. The Council of Nicaea affirmed in the fourth century that Jesus is one with God the Father, as a member of the Holy Trinity. Answer To be a Christian, one has to believe that Jesus the Christ (Messiah) is the Messiah who sacrificed Himself on the cross to pay for mankind's sin, and that He was buried and that He arose the third day. If you do not believe these things you are not a Christian. There are many other essential truths that need to be believed also, but the death, burial and resurrection is the prerequisite to be a Christian. I Corinthians 15:3-4, " For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, ....." To know the other truths about Jesus Christ you need to read and reread the Scriptures, all of them. ( Full Answer )
That he rose from the dead and then ascended into heaven and his death on the cross paid for our sins so that if we accept him, we can go to heaven.
Actually there were no 'Christians' when Jesus was alive. The term christian came later as those (mostly Jews) that followed the teachings of Christ and his disciples. But there were many who did believe in Jesus. Many who had been healed by Him or possibly had seen or heard of His resurrection b…ecame what we now call the first Christians. It should be remembered that what one man started (on a cross) and was later carried on by a handful of devoted followers, would centuries later become the biggest religious movement in the history of mankind, in essense, changing human history.

Christian doctrine states that Jesus is the son of God,not God, as this would be against the first of the TenCommandments. There is however considerable discussion whether thiswas also the accepted view in early Christianity. There are several quotes in scripture with origin dates varyingfrom 50 …AD to around 400 AD that are used as "evidence" for thedivinity of Jesus by Christian theologists. As far as claims to divinity uttered by Jesus himself there is onlyone entry in the New Testament: . Say ye of him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into theworld, Thou blasphemest because I said I am the Son of God - John10:36. Note that the word the is rendered in Italics - manypeople think this is for emphasis and that therefore this statementis equal to the only son of God . However,this the is actually an interjection by the translator, asthe English text is of course a translation from the oldestoriginal rendering we have of this text. In this case, this isAncient Greek: . á½Î½ á½ ÏÎ±Ïá½´Ï á¼¡Î³Î¯Î±ÏÎµÎ½ ÎºÎ±á½¶ á¼ÏÎÏÏÎµÎ¹Î»ÎµÎ½ Îµá¼°Ï Ïá½¸Î½ ÎºÏÏÎ¼Î¿Î½ á½Î¼Îµá¿Ï Î»ÎÎ³ÎµÏÎµ á½ ÏÎ¹Î²Î»Î±ÏÏÎ·Î¼Îµá¿Ï, á½ ÏÎ¹ Îµá¼¶ÏÎ¿Î½Â· Ï á¼±á½¸Ï ÏÎ¿á¿¦ Î¸ÎµÎ¿á¿¦ Îµá¼°Î¼Î¹;. Which literally renders as: . Whom the father acknowledged and sent into the world,you do say I blaspheme because I say: son of God I am.. Note that the word Ï á¼±á½¸Ï is rendered in English as the son , whereas the word really means ( the nature of being a)son. The Greek form therefore does not implyexclusivity and Jesus' statement can therefore also be rendered as: . because I said I am one of the sons (children) ofGod.. This is the interpretation taken by Gnostic Christianity, whichdoes not regard Jesus as divine, but as a mortal spiritual leader. During the council of Nicea in 325 AD the divinity of Jesus was debated and subsequently became the official doctrine ofthe Church (a popularized though not accurate rendering of thesehistoric accounts can be seen in the movie The Da VinciCode ). The gnostic interpretation thus became heresypunishable by death, and all Gnostic texts were removed from theChristian canon. ( Full Answer )
The four Gospel writers described some 35 miracles performed byJesus. In fact, their words suggest that he performed even moresupernatural feats than those they report. When John the Baptistsent two messengers to seek confirmation that Jesus was theMessiah, they found Him 'curing many of sicknesses …and grievousdiseases and wicked spirits and granting many blind persons thefavor of seeing.' Jesus then told the two: "Report to John what yousaw and heard: the blind are receiving sight, the lame are walking,the lepers are being cleansed and the deaf are hearing, the deadare being raised up, the poor are being told the good news."
