In light of the season, I decided it was time for a little refresher course on the baby in the manger, so did a Google search for "Jesus of Nazareth."
A Wikipedia entry came up first, which I found immensely instructive. Part of what was listed there reads as follows:
Jesus (aka "Jesus Christ")
Born: 5 BC / BCE
Bethlehem, Judea, Galilee, Nazareth
Died: 30 AD/ CE (aged 33-35) Calvary in Judea, Roman Empire
(according to the New Testament he rose on the third day
after his death)
According to the Synoptic Gospels, Jesus was a Jew regarded as a healer and a teacher. He was baptized by John the Baptist.
Once again, Jesus was a Jew. That's right, and a card-carrying Jew. In fact, nowadays, he would be known as a rabbi. So, anyone who condemns the Jews condemns the lord.
