Who Was Jesus? Exploring the History of Jesus’ Life

In this FREE eBook, examine fundamental questions about Jesus of Nazareth.

Jesus is the central figure of Christianity, the world’s largest religion. As a teacher in first-century Galilee, he influenced thousands. Yet many questions today surround this enigmatic person. Where was he really born—Bethlehem or Nazareth? Did he marry? Is there evidence outside of the Bible that proves he actually walked the earth?

The brand-new Biblical Archaeology Society eBook Who Was Jesus? Exploring the History of Jesus’ Life, drawn from articles in Biblical Archaeology Review and Bible Review, examines the history of Jesus’ life, from where he was born, where he grew up and whether there is extra-Biblical evidence for his existence.

Chapter 1

Did Jesus Exist? Searching for Evidence Beyond the Bible

who-was-jesus-1

Did Jesus of Nazareth really exist? What’s the evidence outside of the Bible? In “Did Jesus Exist? Searching for Evidence Beyond the Bible,” Lawrence Mykytiuk examines Classical and Jewish writings from the first several centuries C.E. These records give us a glimpse of the person who would become the central figure in Christianity mere decades after his crucifixion.

Chapter 2

Jesus’ Birthplace and Jesus’ Home

who-was-jesus-2

Where was Jesus born? The Gospels of Matthew and Luke say that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. So why is he called a Nazorean and a Galilean throughout the New Testament? In “Jesus’ Birthplace and Jesus’ Home,” Philip J. King examines what the Bible actually says about Bethlehem, traditionally considered Jesus’ birthplace, and Nazareth, Jesus’ hometown.

Chapter 3

Has Jesus’ Nazareth House Been Found?

who-was-jesus3

What was Nazareth like during Jesus’ time? In “Has Jesus’ Nazareth House Been Found?” Ken Dark describes the excavation of an intriguing first-century “courtyard house” that may have been revered as Jesus’ boyhood home in the Byzantine period. Other archaeological evidence suggests that Jesus’ Nazareth was larger and wealthier than previously thought.

Chapter 4

Did Jesus Marry?

who-was-jesus4

Modern movies and novels always want to marry Jesus off to one of his most prominent—and perhaps scandalous—female followers, Mary Magdalene. But Jesus’ own words suggest he wasn’t interested in such worldly matters, according to Birger A. Pearson in “Did Jesus Marry?”

Chapter 5

Was Jesus’ Last Supper a Seder?

who-was-jesus5

Matthew, Mark and Luke say that Jesus was crucified on Passover, suggesting that the Last Supper was a Seder, a ritual meal held in celebration of this Jewish holiday. John indicates otherwise. Who’s right, if any of them? Jonathan Klawans examines this question in “Was Jesus’ Last Supper a Seder?”

    Yeshua was Black. I believe that He was married, or at least in an emotional romance with Mary Magdalene. Also, can BAS touch on how Yeshua became Jesus and the impact the Council of Nicea had on Christianity.

  2. Mark says

    There was no “Jesus”. Jesus isn’t even Hebrew; he is a pagan Roman solar deity comprised of a conglomeration of some 16 pagan deities under the banner of Sol Invictus. Jesus even shares the very same birthday with those solar deities and he shares the same sunrise “Sun”-day easter resurrection with Tammuz.

    Jesus was first created in the 4th century CE, under the direction of the pagan Constantine, as Iesous, Constantine never converted to “Christianity”, he made Christianity convert to Hellenism. Jesus has nothing to do with the Hebrew Messiah Yeshua and is, in fact, the anti-Messiah, or as Christians call it, “anti-Christ”.

    Instead of wasting time by propagating a Roman solar deity named “Jesus”, why don’t you research some historical facts about Yeshua? Otherwise you are doing nothing more than parroting the pagan false religious system.

  3. Mark says

    If you want to learn more about the Hebrew Messiah Yeshua vs. the pagan Roman solar deity, Jesus, pick up a copy of “Exposing Lucifer” in Kindle or Paperback versions from Amazon and have your eyes opened.

  4. johanes says

    Mark, I hope you will kindly do a research to prove that BAR is inaccurate.Thx

  5. david says

    Mark Is right and wrong. He is right about the pagan things wrapped around yeshua. But it wasn’t yeshua who wrapped a lot of pagan rubbish around him self it was the Christian church take the rubbish away , yeshua was the adopted son of god not god and as for the trinity 3 into 1 won’t go.The Christian church has a lot to answer for, Is it not strange how the Christian church points to the coming Anti Christ in the future but Paul in 2 Thessaloniañs says he is already there but one man holds him back but will shortly be taken away. The early church fathers believed this ment when the last roman emperor was gone the Anti Christ will appear and it did the Christian church.

  6. Sheila says

    Matthew 18:2-4 And He (JESUS) called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.…

    Your pride in your “knowledge” will not get you into His Kingdom. The Bible is true, and Jesus is God. He said so.

  7. Suez says

    What a bunch of Hooey! If you want to know who Jesus is, simply read the King James Bible. He certainly wasn’t a made up character from Roman Catholicism!!! They have another jesus, and it isn’t the true one. He certainly wasn’t a made up pagan god. More and more the scriptures are coming to pass when people say there was no Jesus. The devil is working hard to do this, and has been since the garden of Eden. But now, he is working harder, as he knows his time is short! He uses people with false beliefs, and their stupid comments. to put doubt and lies in other people heads. Who is Jesus Christ of Nazareth? He is the King of Kings, and the Lord of all Lords. He is the ONLY Begotten Son of the Most High God!!! He is messiah, Savior, the Lamb of God sent to die for our sins! He is the Word of God, the Lion of Judea, He is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, He is the Creator of the Heavens, the Earth, the Sea, and all that is in them!!!! He is the Son of God that was born of the virgin Mary, crucified on Calvary’s cross, raised from the dead in 3 days, and now sits at the right hand of Almighty God, waiting for the Father to say, Now go, gather those who I have chosen and given to you…..THAT IS WHO JESUS OF NAZARETH IS!!!!! He IS Coming again, and gather those who are watching and waiting for him, to gather them to himself, and those who don’t believe in him will fry. Seek him now while you still can .

  8. Janice says

    Suez is 100% correct.And so is Sheila. God Is … and why He doesn’t do philosophical rambling or mindbending. Our God is a God of peace and simplicity and life. ‘The other one’ is a god of chaos, confusion and death.I can’t wait for the second coming of our dear Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.Bring it on!

  9. W Laurie says

    It has taken nearly two thousand years for us to get our minds around the fact that God actually paid a visit to this planet. We are obviously still puzzled by what that means about God, us, the writings that record the event and its preparation, and especially about Messiah Jesus (as the Apostle Paul came to call him). It is quite appropriate that we should be puzzled. For a creature to understand its Creator is like a trained dog trying to understand its master. I believe God wants us to keep puzzling; if we have honest hearts and good intentions we will come to know him, not just about him. And that is the purpose of the visit: he likes us and wants us to spend eternity with him.

  10. PHILLIP says

    How can anyone speculate on YAWEH’S SON? If you don’t believe thats your choice.
    But how can you not believe in Intelliget Design? God gives you the process to
    believe or not. No one is forced to believe. And no one will cut your head off if you
    choose not to believe. I still love my Biblical Archaeology. All issues!
    Thanks for the info,Phil Hull

  11. tom says

    Let us all remember that Almighty God is capable of doing everything and anything He wants. He is Creator, Author, and Trinity. We know this through his Word. Everything else is of Satan. Unless, of course, if there is NO god, then its all opinion. Remember, our military members have sacrificed all so everyone is able to hold and express any opinion. So, ‘as for me, I will serve the Lord’.

  12. Agyeng says

    Great piece!

  13. J says

    THANK YOU JESUS !!! “GOD WITH US “…PRAISE THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT…

  14. Allan says

    Jesus, ‘Son of God’ is a term or relationship presented to humans because that is the closest thing they will understand in the 1st.century AD. However it is not entirely like human relationship. Every aspect of Jesus’s life has two sides- Human and Divine. When He cried for Lazarus; He was fully human but when He called out from his grave He was fully Divine! It has been found in incidents. Interesting thing about Christianity and Jesus Christ is the puzzle is completed with every bits of information whether Archaeology or History, Linguistic or Textural. More you search; more you find things vindicating ‘The Bible, Jesus Christ and Christianity than any other religions. All other religions are nothing but myths and pseudo information and are ideology intolerant to others. Hinduism is only religion still believe in their myths where is Buddhist advocate peace and tolerance but are most cruel and intolerant people on the face of Earth- Japanese, Burmese and Sri Lankan and also Myanmar. Even Tibetan Buddhist punished Christian missionary from India by wrapping them in fresh animal skin and left them in sun to dry and slowly constrict to death. This was done by the highest priest or lama. So Suez is right!

  15. Alaine says

    It’s amazing how much negative vibes I receive in all these comments! I thought that following the go(o)d word was a moral and social basis for all societies, including those who follow the Pentateuch. Let’s be positive, please!

  16. Sue says

    It is not my intention to upset anyone, I just wish to leave MY opinion about Jesus. I believe Jesus was a Son of God as we all are, Children of God. We all have birth Fathers though and Jesus had Joseph. Jesus was, compassionate, faithful, a wonderful healer and a true Blessing to many. I also believe Jesus was in some kind of relationship with Mary Magdeleine, whether it be marriage or not, it doesn’t matter. Jesus also told his followers that “you too can be like me”. Everything the Bible states is a matter of someone’s interpretation so I think we can choose to take from it which parts we feel is right for us as individuals. I believe I am a Child of God therefore Jesus is my Brother and I DON’T think saying this is blasphemous. I also do NOT believe Jesus had white skin and blue eyes. If he truly was born in the area it states in the Bible, then he would have tanned skin, dark hair and eyes. This is only my opinion and belief and I know I’m not damned to hell for believing this.

  17. Antony says

    MATTHEW – 1:23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son. They shall call his name Immanuel;” which is, being interpreted, “God with us.”{Isaiah 7:14}

    Amen.

  18. Chanah says

    Who is YESHUA to me HE is the lover of my soul and soon coming KING, GOD the SON and SON of GOD, I can’t say that I fully understand, I will however say it like a young girl said it, my mind does not understand but my soul does

  19. Sibabrata says

    I shall send Photo and writing of Last Supper on old News Paper collected by my Late Father Sachindra Chandra Acharya .Since I studied in Metiabruz Church Primary School Garden Reach in year of 1960.

  20. Elmsap says

    To suez. No , if you don’t believe in jesus you will not fry. Instead, after the resurrection you will go to school. You will be taught by teachers that were being prepared in the pass and here in present to be resurrecited in spirit to teach you God’s truth without pagan interference. Those who are to be taught will be brought back in the flesh, and be transformed into spirit and brought into Gods family when they truly understand and convert to God’s way. He does not want any to risk eternal death, but some will still turn their backs on God and his way of life, those will not burn forever but will be left in their flesh form to be consumed by the molten state of the earth as it is being redone. The smoke of the cremated unrepented will assend forever, not the person or their consciousness. God will not cause suffering and pain on any forever. Their ashes will be trod upon by the saints.

  21. nasasiira says

    i just thank you suez one word to a wise man is enough so may Jesus bless you brother

    Thanks for the info everyone…blessings to all

  24. MICHAEL says

    Seuz, please don’t disparage Roman Catholics, nor infer that “your” Jesus is different from “our” Jesus. Just go and do some historical research of the 5th through 12th Centuries, and learn something. There is only one Jesus, Son of God.

  25. aisoon says

    One’s belief is mainly originated and encouraged from childhood education as well as how being brought up in a family. Buddha was born 543+80(his age)= 623 years before Jesus. It was a way of life and truth in those days , especially in the very distant and primitive area where people did not have a guiding light of their souls, that Buddha could completely find out a way to approach near Go(o)d. Since no one else nor he knew the true God over that time ( though he was trying to find out about goodness), it was not wrong to him to preach or spread his ideas to his followers and finally became Bhuddhism which has been a chief religion for the east Asian. No one ever introduced true God to Bhuddha. The only difference between Christianity and Buddhism is on ” knowing and not-knowing God”. Bhuddism teaches about the same way of good life as of Christian , mainly about forgiveness, peace, adultery sins, clean minds, getting away from passion, being satisfied of sufficient life , doing no revenge and many more. It is totally right for people in this area to follow him even now and then. Some said that if Bhuddha was born after Christ and if he knew how Christ taught , he would not need to meditate for tens of years to find out what he needed.

    About Islam, there is a dispute between Christ and Mohamed. After Christ, in Christian belief Jesus is the only son of God who is the supremacy to deal with the world. After him, there should have not been any other prophet to convey any other messages from God. But one thing we have to keep in mind, why Ishmael who nearly died in the desert after being expelled by Sarah/Abraham was saved by God and became the ancestor of Arabian. They are like brothers to the Jews having the same belief until Mohamed declared Islam as the only true belief about 4-500 years after Christ. And now, the number of Moslem population is the most in the world. I myself who completely believe in God I am Catholic, in my view, I think we do not know exactly how God plans for the world. If Bhuddhism and Islam are not of His plan, why He has let these religions have such evolutions for 2000 years? We can see from history and bible that those pagans’ beliefs in gods and godesses in the Greek and Roman empires just vanish after their periods.

    What have made conflicts and fights between religions and beliefs are about blaming each other. Ones always claim their religion is the only genuine one while the others are fake and try to force the other sides to convert. We know from history how many millions were killed in the conflicts between Catholic and Protestants. They both believe in the same Jesus but do not do what he taught about love, mercy peace and forgiveness. Who is going to heaven or hell is not by anyone’s judgement but it is only God who will consider and judge one’s deed. For what if we can convert the others but need to kill or make war?

    – Why Protestants always blame Catholics about having faith in Mother Mary? Is she that bad or disgusting to mind her like that? How great distress on her seeing the son on the cross? Protestants should focus on what Jesus taught. He said we should not judge but leave it to God to do this. Me as a Catholic, I never mind a Protestant for not giving respect to Mary. I know the reason and respect the Protestants’ idea. What affair of the Catholics, leave it to the Catholics. It is not the issue of Protestants.

    – For the Catholics, we must remind ourselves that we were the real motif of breaking Christianity into pieces. We cannot deny that the history of Catholic Church was committed to great power and politics of Europe. The church oppressed and forced Christians in order to secure its power with the politics. They eliminated and killed millions who had some different ideas or opposed the wickness in Vatican over some high ranking priests. Unbelievably, they had killed innocent people with the cruelest methods that human could invent. Did Jesus teach us so?

    So, stop blaming or forcing each other. God gives us freedom to choose what we need to and who we are to be a judge instead. Going to heaven or hell is upto one’s deed and God’s judgement. When talking about other beliefs, let us talk only about their nice issues and leave all the offensive remarks or questions behind. By the way, let us do best on our beliefs and respect the others. I think Jesus will be happiest to see his people in such a way.

  26. Rev says

    Jesus was. God in flesh u must be born of water and of the spirit to enter into heaven. That is being baptized in Jesus name and being filled with the Holy Ghost.

  27. Rev says

    U all better walk and live in faith and be ready for the calling of the church..read the book of acts..and Isaiah 9:6 1john Listen friends there is
    Only 1 God not three.. father son and HolyGhost are tittles not names..Acts 2:38 .. no where in the Bible anyone baptized in the name notice name is singular not plural of the father son and HolyGhost their titles not names.

  28. Michael says

    Why do people get on these forums and forget how to use basic grammar and punctuation skills? All I know, is that I love God. I appreciate all that he has done for me and my family.

  29. james says

    James,
    there remains only two things to learn about God if one is not an atheist,
    Heaven. Earth
    God. Satan
    man. woman
    obedience. disobedience
    holy. unholy
    Godly. ungodly
    righteous. unrighteous
    light. darkness
    pure. defiled
    clean. dirty
    holy spirit. evil spirit
    all these substances can never mix and if they mix the outcome is always negative,
    one has to make a decision and a choice where your destination will be !

  30. George says

    There is a huge difference between the prophets of Old Testament and Jesus Christ, He fulfills all prophecies that were written down about the coming of the Savior, Healer, son of the Most high, the crucified and 300 more..
    The prophets witnessed to the light
    Christ , Jesus is the light of the world
    C, for the guys who are not convinced, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you could move mountains, one day you will see a small spark of that light and then I hope you wil get to believe before its late.
    Whatever you read about God, anywhere, in any different book or manuscript or religion
    It points towards Jesus Christ towards Love
    AGHAPI
    DEVIL HAS MORE THAN A 100000 form
    LOVE HAS ONE FORM
    YOUR SON JESUS CHRIST

  31. Stephen says

    There angels and demons, for those who don’t believe Jesus is God in person then you lack the spirit to understand. In the book, Alien Interview, the alien (angel) stated the Bible is true… Who would you be if you don’t believe the alien from August 1947? Whether you believe or not you are at the mercy between God and the Devil, only Jesus can save you and protect you.

  32. claudius says

    After reading just some of the above comments I am more convinced that some people should never read the Bible ,as they only find lies in truths. Their minds are just wired for hatred against anything loving! It very probably includes the the influence of humanism and evolution –satans tools !.

  33. Rick says

    Matthew 1:23 – Jesus is called “Emmanuel; meaning GOD WITH US.” If you go to Isaiah 7:14 (written 760 years before the birth of Christ) You will see that a virgin shall conceive and bring forth Immanuel (Hebrew rendition of Greek Emmanuel) which also means “God With Us.”

    Thomas the disciple of Jesus cried out; “My Lord and My God” when speaking to Jesus and Jesus never corrected him. Jesus accepted worship and in Revelation chapter one Jesus calls himself the “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end” which are names solely attributed to God in the Old Testament.

    For a very thorough study on the deity of Jesus Christ I suggest that you visit the following page – http://www.crlord.com/the-deity-of-jesus.html There are many scriptures and a lot of information there that conclusively prove he is God for those who are able to be objective in their research instead of objective or opinionated.

  34. Jerry says

    It is not who was Jesus it is who is Jesus.

  35. jes says

    Jesus in English or western languages is the Yesu in Eastern languages, and this Yesu is the Lord who will be called Christ when he comes to earth after several thousand of years after the judgement of world.The Jewish people now study Yesuvites without knowing he was the Christ.

  36. SHUNIL says

    Excellent references.

  37. Sérgio Luis says

    Bem, acreditar na divindade de Jesus é uma questão além de histórica, muito mais de fé. Ele, Jesus, o Filho de Deus, disse: Bem-aventurados sois vós que não viram, mas creram! Isso é fé. Eu não fui um dos discípulos de Jesus: não andei com Ele, meus olhos não o viram, meus ouvidos não o ouviram, meu nariz não sentiu o seu perfume, minha mãos não O tocaram, mas… Hoje, como filho de Deus, através de Jesus Cristo, posso andar com Ele, posso vê-Lo, posso ouvi-Lo, posso sentir o seu perfume e posso tocá-Lo. Isso é sobrenatural! Enquanto escrevo estas singelas linhas, posso sentir sua presença aqui comigo. Eu te amo e sempre te amarei, YESHUA MASHIACH!

  38. Betty says

    Wow, am shocked to know that there are still people who don’t believe in God and Jesus. Jesus is real, he actually came and will come again. He came the first time to give us life- He said I came that you may have life- He will come a second time to judge the earth, by then it will be too late to make any decision. Today while you still have the time, choose Him, give your heart to Christ, He loves you so much He gave up His life for you.

  39. Irene says

    I believe in a saviour i wil nt debate on the name urs and myn varies
    ..if need be lets do lyk the appostles when they wanted a person to replace judas iscariot..prayer in unity

  40. pat says

    Graham says: Isn’t amazing how some find “the Truth” at Amazon.com rather than going to the only Truth, God’s Word, the Holy Bible. I know that my Savior is alive and real. He saved my life twice; once lost at sea in the North Atlantic Ocean and once after 21/2 hours in water after my small boat sank in Biscane Bay, Florida. After the second time, I realized that God was telling me something. We talked and I found how much I needed Jesus. It’s true, Jesus can and will forgive all your sins; one would have to be God to forgive all of my sins. But now I’m free! I’m free to serve my King of kings, my Lord of lords! For all you Christains out there, “Isn’t it great to be in the grip of the Holy Spirit!”

  41. Ranjit says

    Lord Jesus is really God Who was incarnate in the the womb of Mary the virgin mother of God who came to this very earth to save the sinners with his precious body & blood as a ransom payment for the sins of all men

  42. Raymond says

    Jesus was indeed God but came to the earth with human nature through virgin Mary to demonstrate His endless love for His creations and as we exhibit His Love for others and to Him we may have salvation. I believe His mission was to save His kind but to marry so He did not marry.

  43. KARL says

    I like BAR for the review of the Bible in a Historical perspective and be able travel thru the land JESUS walked or rode on a donkey virtually. My time to really be interested in the Bible and Biblical History is when the IRAQ CONFLICT started. NAMES: BABYLON, UR, NINEVA,TIGRIS, EURPHATES RIVERS, GARDEN OF EDEN, MT ARRARATE, DESTRUCTION AND THEFT OF ANCIENT ARTIFACTS. My wife and I were married 55yrs, She went home along with our son to be with our Lord, Our son in 2005 and my wife in 2014. I’m now 81yrs old and in great health. I’ve gone to several ENDTIME STUDIES AND CLASSES. Collected many event and Historical timeline charts.
    My most favorite one is a 4,000yr BIBLICAL AND WORLD HISTORY timeline chart. It starts with ADOM and EVE thru 2014 with thousands of events along with BIBLICAL referances on 90% notations. It is a great joy read and follow Our LORD till He comes.

  44. candi says

    Thank You!!!

  45. paul B says

    Thank you my Christians friends who believe that, Jesus is the son of God, Those opposing need salvation to connect them self to God order wise they are doom for hell for all eternity. see John 1: 1-5. in the begging was the word and the word was God, he was with God in the beginning, through him all things were made, without him nothing could have been made. he his the light that sign in darkness and darkness obey, my prayer is those darkness in the heads of those opposer will see the light of Christ.
    The same word became flesh and dwells among men. To lack knowledge of the misery of the Name of Jesus is sickness and death. God help them to see the light.
    The bible said, the God of this world has blinded the eyes of men, from the truth. Satan wants to go to hell with foolish men without the knowledge of God and that is why their eyes have been blinded with fake philosophy.
    Jesus said no one cometh to the Father except through me, no bypass. The name of Jesus is powerful, Satan fall at the name of Jesus, sickness bow at the name of Jesus. Tell which name the devil fears, all other names are powerless names, except the name of Jesus. in Philippians 2:9 the bible says, he has be exalted and a name has been given unto him, at the mention of that name, every knee shall bow in heaven, on earth and under the earth. Glory be to God.

  46. Bempillar says

    I wouldn’t add a thing to what Suez and Sheila said and the lot that are on the side of Truth. May God’s light never cease to shine in you that you who don’t believe will believe.

  47. Bempillar says

    Visit https://bempillar.blogspot.com you will see I did a small write-up on the divinity of Christ, strictly basing on scriptures.

  48. Althea says

    Please help me to understand. It seems most of the writers on this blog are highly knowledgeable about ancient text and biblical facts regarding the bible and The Christ/ Lord and Savior, including his country of birth, language, and culture; however, when he is being addressed, he is not called by his ancient Hebrew name, but by a name that historically did not exist until during or after the 1600?

  49. vickers says

    fruitful discourse,it is the Truth that will set us all free,So i ask this question to those who are more knowledgable on this matter!, Who is Jesus?

  50. Steve says

    If you don’t know the reason why Jesus could be born in Bethlehem and yet be called a Nazarene and a Galilean perhaps you should read the Gospels. The Gospel writers themselves answer that question. Of course, you would have to believe that the Bible is God’s Word in order to believe the books in the Bible are accurate. It is obvious that the writers of many of the BAR articles and authors of many of the BAR recommended books do NOT believe the Bible to be the Word of God but a product of biased history at best or human fiction at worst.
    Read the Bible. Believe the Bible. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to you. It’s in there. Cast BAR aside.
