      n : a teacher and prophet born in Bethlehem and active in
          Nazareth; his life and sermons form the basis for
          Christianity (circa 4 BC - AD 29) [syn: Jesus of
          Nazareth, the Nazarene, Jesus Christ, Christ, Savior,
           Saviour, Good Shepherd, Redeemer, Deliverer]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (1.) Joshua, the son of Nun (Acts 7:45; Heb. 4:8; R.V.,
      (2.) A Jewish Christian surnamed Justus (Col. 4:11).
      Je'sus, the proper, as Christ is the official, name of our
    Lord. To distinguish him from others so called, he is spoken of
    as "Jesus of Nazareth" (John 18:7), and "Jesus the son of
    Joseph" (John 6:42).
      This is the Greek form of the Hebrew name Joshua, which was
    originally Hoshea (Num. 13:8, 16), but changed by Moses into
    Jehoshua (Num. 13:16; 1 Chr. 7:27), or Joshua. After the Exile
    it assumed the form Jeshua, whence the Greek form Jesus. It was
    given to our Lord to denote the object of his mission, to save
    (Matt. 1:21).
      The life of Jesus on earth may be divided into two great
    periods, (1) that of his private life, till he was about thirty
    years of age; and (2) that of his public life, which lasted
    about three years.
      In the "fulness of time" he was born at Bethlehem, in the
    reign of the emperor Augustus, of Mary, who was betrothed to
    Joseph, a carpenter (Matt. 1:1; Luke 3:23; comp. John 7:42). His
    birth was announced to the shepherds (Luke 2:8-20). Wise men
    from the east came to Bethlehem to see him who was born "King of
    the Jews," bringing gifts with them (Matt. 2:1-12). Herod's
    cruel jealousy led to Joseph's flight into Egypt with Mary and
    the infant Jesus, where they tarried till the death of this king
    (Matt. 2:13-23), when they returned and settled in Nazareth, in
    Lower Galilee (2:23; comp. Luke 4:16; John 1:46, etc.). At the
    age of twelve years he went up to Jerusalem to the Passover with
    his parents. There, in the temple, "in the midst of the
    doctors," all that heard him were "astonished at his
    understanding and answers" (Luke 2:41, etc.).
      Eighteen years pass, of which we have no record beyond this,
    that he returned to Nazareth and "increased in wisdom and
    stature, and in favour with God and man" (Luke 2:52).
      He entered on his public ministry when he was about thirty
    years of age. It is generally reckoned to have extended to about
    three years. "Each of these years had peculiar features of its
    own. (1.) The first year may be called the year of obscurity,
    both because the records of it which we possess are very scanty,
    and because he seems during it to have been only slowly emerging
    into public notice. It was spent for the most part in Judea.
    (2.) The second year was the year of public favour, during which
    the country had become thoroughly aware of him; his activity was
    incessant, and his frame rang through the length and breadth of
    the land. It was almost wholly passed in Galilee. (3.) The third
    was the year of opposition, when the public favour ebbed away.
    His enemies multiplied and assailed him with more and more
    pertinacity, and at last he fell a victim to their hatred. The
    first six months of this final year were passed in Galilee, and
    the last six in other parts of the land.", Stalker's Life of
    Jesus Christ, p. 45.
      The only reliable sources of information regarding the life of
    Christ on earth are the Gospels, which present in historical
    detail the words and the work of Christ in so many different
    aspects. (See CHIRST.)
