The Christian Faith
Its all about...
Jesus was a Jew who lived 2000 years ago in Israel, and he is the person at the centre of Christianity. To understand Christianity better why not read ‘The Gospel of Mark’ in the bible- a historical account of the life of Jesus written in the 1st century. Then come and ask some questions.
Jesus was the son of a carpenter. He never became a powerful ruler. He never led an army. In fact, he died young, in a brutal way, nailed to a cross. But today, millions of people all around the world worship him.
A Cruel Death
Jesus’ death was not an accident. He told his followers he would die. He taught people that their sin (the fact that we do not love and serve God) separated them from God. Mankind deserved to die for this, but Jesus died in man’s place.
Because Jesus died and took the punishment mankind deserved for ignoring God, those who follow Jesus can now have a relationship with God. This relationship begins the day you trust in Jesus and means that after you die, you go to be with him forever.
