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.
