Birth of Christ Sometime between 5-7BC [Matt 1:18:25, Luke 2:11-14]

Jesus was trained as most young people were in the Torah. One a trip to Jerusalem though, his parents inadvertently left him behind and returned to find him three days later in the temple, learning and asking questions.
Before beginning his ministry Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan River. [Matt 3:13, Mark 1:11, Luke 3, John 2]
After his baptism Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights in the Judean wilderness. While there Satan approached and tempted Christ. [Matthew 4]
Jesus began his ministry at Cana in Galilee where he performed his first miracle of turning water into wine. [John 2]
Jesus performed many miracles during his ministry and his popularity among the people grew as a result. His feeding miracles were particularly popular among the people in western Galiless and Bethsaida. [Matt 14:15-21, Mark 8:1-10]
While Jesus' popularity among the people grew, he was not without enemies. Some of his miracles caused opposition to grow toward him. In one case, Jesus defied Sabbath rules to heal a man. Along with this he defied old food laws making sects and parties unite and plot against him. [Mark 2:27, Mark 7:15-19]
Jesus set his sights on Jerusalem for the last time [Luke 9:51]. He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey colt to much fanfare and excitement from the people [Mark 11, John 12]. However, these people who praised Him and worshiped Him in His entry would soon turn against him.
Jesus spent his final evening praying before the Lord, asking even that if there was another way that the Lord would grant that "this cup pass from him" [Mark 14:32-42]. His time in prayer was interrupted by Judas and a host of Roman soldiers, and temple police. They had come to arrest him. [Luke 22:52, John 18:3,12]
Jesus was taken before the high priests and the Sanhedrin to be put on trial in the middle of the night. False witnesses were brought in to incriminate Jesus. [Mark 14:56, Matt 26:63, Mark 15:1] Jesus was found to guilty by the court of claiming to be God and subverting the nation of Israel by claiming to be king. Because of this he was brought before Pilate and the people. It was here that they yelled for his crucifixion. [Luke 23:2 and John 18:36]
Jesus was tortured and beat within an inch of his life. [Mark 15:16-32] The soldiers gambled for his clothing and mocked and scorned him. Jesus was crucified naked. [John 19:23-24] He was hung on the cross between two thieves, and people that knew and loved him were their to witness all of it. [John 19:26] Jesus hung on the cross until his death. He uttered the words, "it is finished" and died. [John 19:30].
To confirm Jesus' death a soldier stabbed Him in the side. Blood and water ran out. [John 19:34] Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus took Jesus body and prepared it for burial. They buried Jesus in Joseph's tomb. [John 19:38-42]
No grave could hold Jesus, and three days later he arose from the grave. This was confirmed by the women who came to the tomb to find it empty [Mark 16:1-2]. Furthermore there were sightings of Jesus by the disciples. He appeared to them in Jerusalem [Luke 24:36-49]. He appeared to them on the road to Emmaus. [Luke 24:13-27]. He also appeared to them in Galilee. [Matt 28:16-20]. He remained for 40 days after his resurrection. [Acts 1:3]
On one occasion Jesus appeared to approximately 500 people [1 Corinthians 15:6]. After those 40 days, Jesus ascended into heaven to take his place at the right hand of God. [Acts 1:9-12]
