The Life of Christ

The life of Christ is a valuable study in order to observe what Jesus did during His life and to use it as an example for how we ought to live our lives.  Below, the life of Christ is laid out chronologically and is broken down into three categories: birth, ministry, and passion week.  Although most events involve Jesus directly, a few are events surrounding His life such as the birth and ministry of John the Baptist.

Birth stretches from the time that John the Baptist's miraculous birth was foretold up to the last mention of Jesus as a child.  Ministry covers the bulk of Jesus' three plus years of ministry.  His specific teachings, parables, and miracles are separated out.  The life of Christ pertains to things that Jesus did, events that He participated in, and things that happened to Him.

Passion week follows the final week of Jesus' life through His resurrection and ascension.  Although it was only one week in His life, almost half of the gospels are devoted to this week so there is a lot of information that is given to us during this time.

The order pertains to the overall sequence of events in Jesus life.  See Chronological Order of Gospel Events for the full list.  By clicking on the title of an event in the life of Christ, you'll be taken to commentary concerning that particular story.  By clicking on any of the verses, you'll be taken to the verses pertaining to that story from all of the gospels which record it.
