Life of Jesus Sort of

The Announcement

“Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

The Decree & Road to Bethlehem


"While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them."

Born under the reign of Emperor Augustus BC 43 - AD 14

(most likely between 5-7 AD)

-kid years-

visit to Passover at age 12

When Mary and Joseph traveled to Jerusalem they probably did so with a large caravan, and the men and women traveled separately. Since Jesus was at a transitional age, Mary likely thought Jesus was with Joseph and Joseph thought he was with the women. At night they discovered their error (pg. 129)

Baptism at the Jordan River with John

And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” (Mark 1:11)

The Temptation

@ the judean wilderness

First Miracle at Cana in Galilee: Water to Wine

Jesus likely performed the miracle in a stone water jar. Unlike pottery jars, these jars could not become "unclean" through common use and thus could hold purification water (pg. 131)

Death of John the Baptist by Antipas: Antipas killed John at his fortress of Machaerus on the Nabatean border to silence his critic and avoid possible border war (pg. 131).

Jesus moves north to the hills of Galilee

His popularity began to grow and large crowds followed him

during this time he preaches his famous "Sermon on the Mount"

performs the great feeding miracles in western galilee and east side of sea, perhaps by bethsaida (mark 8:1-10)

As Jesus crosses social boundaries and associates himself with women, tax collectors, lepers, and the like, opposition towards him begins to grow

conflicts arise regarding breaking the Sabbath, being relaxed about purity laws, etc.

Peter proclaims Jesus as the Messiah at Caesarea Philippi: a turning point in his ministry

The transfiguration on the mountain (likely Mount Hermon)

Jesus "set his face" for Jerusalem (Luke 9:51) where he predicts his death three times

Jesus resurrects Lazarus in Bethany

Palm Sunday

Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” (Mark 11:9-10)

Jesus curses the fig tree

(the fig was a common symbol of Israel itself and its destruction symbolized the judgment on the nation (pg. 139)

Jesus cleanses the temple

(Matthew 23/Mark 12)
The last supper at passover: each passover season anticipated the ritual slaughter of lambs, which was followed after sundown by a passover meal (pg. 140)

This year, it began on a Thursday.

Luke 22/John 18
Jesus is tried and crucified

Pilot's interrogation likely took place at the Antonia Fortress (crosses were not tall and victims feet were not far from the ground)

He resurrects!

“You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’” (Mark 16: 6-7)
