Jesus was born about two thousand years ago into a complicated time and place.
Jesus was born in Israel during a time it had been taken over and called Palestine. There was much disagreement about religion at this time, especially about the coming Messiah (which means “anointed, who was to be God’s envoy).
The stories of Jesus’ birth, life and death should be viewed the same way as the lives of many other religious founders- it may be more symbolic than literal.
While there is a lot we don’t know about Jesus, a well defined explanation can be found in the gospels.
Jesus also stressed simplicity. For example- he urged them to be more like “little children”. He liked directness and strived to go beyond detail to the heart of things…
What does this remind you of???
