Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in the south of Palestine. He grew up in a very ordinary town, named Nazareth. Jesus was a carpenter, but at the age of 30, He became a religious teacher, moving from town to town. Jesus has been acclaimed as the greatest religious leader who ever lived, as being the most influential person to have lived on our planet, and as being unique to the degree that no one can be compared to Him. But considering Jesus Christ merely on the basis of an exemplary life and His superior moral teaching will not remove the stumbling blocks to Christianity raised by an unbelieving world.
