Jesus Christ was the founder of Christianity. He was born to Joseph and Mary at Bethlehem near Jerusalem. He was born in a poor family. He did not receive any formal education. He was very intelligent. He was able to understand and explain the teachings in the holy books of Jews to common man. He preached about God.
He taught people to be kind to each other and develop a sense of brotherhood among them. God has created this whole world and help each other without expecting anything in return. He believed that service to mankind is service to God. He advised people to do good even to their enemies. Thus, his preachings established peace and cooperation among the people.
His disciples were called Apostles and they helped to spread his teachings and Christianity.
People started calling him as Messiah or the Saviour of God. He helped the poor and strengthened the people who were in trouble. He was very kind and divine. This developed jealousy among the priestly class of Jews and they called him as traitor and complained to the Governor of the Roman Empire Pontius Pilate. He was hence taken to Golgotha on a Friday and was nailed by tying him on a wooden beam. This Friday on which he was crucified was called as Good Friday.
