  Encyclopedia: Christian views of Jesus
Jesus, Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus the Nazarene (circa 4 BC/BCE – 30 AD/CE), is the central figure of Christianity, in which context he is known as Jesus Christ (from Greek Ιησούς Χριστός) with Christ being a title meaning Anointed One or Messiah.
Christian movements are theological, political, or philosophical intepretations of Christianity that are not generally represented by a specific church, sect, or denomination.
Christian views of Jesus vary somewhat between different Christian denominations, but almost all Christians base their beliefs around what they hold to be Jesus' teachings, and believe that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah), the saviour of mankind foretold in the Old Testament.

 Easter article - Easter holiday Christian resurrection Jesus crucifixion Good Friday - What-Means.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Easter is generally accounted the most important holiday of the Christian year, observed each spring to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead (after his death by crucifixion; see Good Friday), which Christians believe happened at about this time of year, almost two thousand years ago.
In Western Christianity, Easter marks the end of the forty days of Lent, a period of fasting and penitence in preparation for Easter which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at Easter Sunday.
In addition, some Christians believe the holiday is named for the Babylonian goddess Ishtar ([2] (http://www.origin-of-easter.com/) [3] (http://www.christiananswers.net/q-eden/edn-t020.html) [4] (http://www.lasttrumpetministries.org/tracts/tract1.html) [5] (http://www.pathlights.com/theselastdays/tracts/tract_22n.htm) [6] (http://www.tiral.com/2004/04/the_origins_of_.html)), but there exist no etymological indications that would support such claims.

 Jesus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)

The notion of Jesus as son of God is something that was established under the influence of Paul of Tarsus (originally named Saul), who had been an enemy of Jesus, but later changed course and joined the disciples after the departure of Jesus.
According, to Christian belief, the original sin of Adam and Eve of eating from the forbidden tree was so great that God could not forgive it by simply willing it, rather it was necessary to erase it with the blood of a sinless, innocent Jesus.

If the resurrection of Jesus from the dead on that Easter Sunday were a public event which had been made known...not only to the 530 Jewish witnesses but to the entire population, all Jews would have become followers of Jesus.
Jesus, like other teachers, severely criticized his people for their spiritual short-comings, seeking to correct them, but at the same time he loved and pitied them.
Jesus, like all other of the noblest type of Jewish teachers, taught the essential lessons of spiritual religion -- love, justice, goodness, purity, holiness -- subordinating the material and the political to the spiritual and the eternal.

The claim that Jesus is a Person of the Triune God as portrayed in the Bible is considered blasphemous by Islamic teaching.

 REACH: Unitarian Views of Jesus
Jesus was seen as the supreme teacher and leader of humankind, and salvation was to be achieved through conforming one's life to his teaching, as the purest expression of God's will.
Whatever their theological perspective Unitarians attempt, in their style of worship and their community life, to combine a faith of personal integrity with a spirit of inclusiveness that draws strength from a willingness to share and learn from others.
The question of the centrality of Jesus offers a challenge to modern Unitarians to discover ways of drawing the best from traditions of the past, while discovering an ever deeper understanding and respect for the convictions of others in the present, thus opening ourselves up to fresh visions and insights of a better future.

Pat Robertson last week, on his long-running TV show The 700 Club, seemed more Muslim than Christian when he suggested that U.S. operatives assassinate Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez: "We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability.
