The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah by Alfred EdersheimThis article explains the life of Jesus beginning with his birth about years ago in the land of Israel, his three-and-a-half year ministry, as well as his crucifixion and resurrection. About years ago a man named Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in the land of Israel. He was unique. He was fully God and yet fully human. God had allowed himself to be born as a man so that he could live and suffer among us, to serve as the perfect atonement for our sin, and to offer forgiveness and salvation to anyone who believes. His birth, mission, death and resurrection were foretold by the prophets of the Old Testament of the Bible and revealed to us by the writers of the New Testament.
