Christianity: the life of Jesus ▯ The socio­historical context  in 1  century Judea   Roman occupation, heavy taxes  Political unrest   Sadducees, Pharisees, Essenes, Zealots  Apocalyptic expectations (No physical description of physical appearance of Jesus in the texts) ▯ Life of Jesus: 4 B.C.E. ­  29 B.C.E.  Born in either Nazareth or Bethlehem, the day he was born is unknown (no clear day  or month)  Miraculous conception, virgin mother, miraculous birth.  Born into Jewish carpenter family (Probably Pharisees)  Very little textual information about his childhood and his adolescence. Most of the  information about Jesus is during his adulthood especially during the three years that  he spent teaching and preaching. Jesus “Public Life”   Baptized by John the Baptist in his late 20’s   Begins his teaching and preaching career that lasted about three years never going 100 km away from hometown.   Performs healings, exorcisms, and miracles (Jesus seems to heal people of the  lower social economic status; the working class)  Gathers group of disciples and followers.  After three years of teaching and preaching he  was arrested at Passover  Crucified, placed in tomb after death   Subsequent reports of his resurrection and return to life.  Reports of his ascension into heaven (his body rising to heaven), with a promise  to return again  The Moral teachings  a Jew who believes in god, accepts the authority of the law but still has the ability  to have his or her own ideas or thoughts.  Emphasis on universal love, and rejects the idea of vengeance and human moral  disapproval.  Pacifism    Support for the poor and outcast, anti­materialism. (all through out the bible the  common theme or the main focus is on the people on the bottom; the working  class.) (God is anti­material)  Rejection of overly strict observance of the law: reduction of the law  Jesus and the Kingdom of Heaven  Emphasis on the coming of the “Kingdom of God” or the “Kingdom of Heaven”  (different interpretations of this) 1. As an imminent event where God directly intervenes and changes the  world (the received Jewish view at that time) 2. As a kind of internal transformation of a person’s character (humans  change the world, inspired by god) Groups angered by Jesus teachings and actions 1. The Romans­ His emphasis on the coming of the “Kingdom of Heaven” is a  direct challenge to Roman authority and the Emperor’s claim to divinity. 2. The Sadducess­ his symbolic destruction of the temple; chasing money chargers  out challenges their authority. 3. The Pharisess­ his teachings challenges Pharisaic 4. The Zealots­ his acceptance of the practice of roman taxation(“render to Caesar  what is Caesar’s”) is at odds with the Zealots ideology of resistance. (Jesus pretty much angered everyone with the exception of the lower class.)
