The son of God Jesus Christ is born, wonderful names celebrate days…

On this holy day, Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The name Jesus in Old Aramaic means “Jehovah is salvation” and the Greek Χριστός comes from the Hebrew “Messiah” or “the anointed one”. Jesus of Nazareth is the founder and central historical figure of Christianity, as well as one of the most influential figures in human history.

Christ is considered by most Christian denominations to be the embodiment of the second person of the Holy Trinity – God the Son. They accept that God the Father is the Father of Jesus Christ. Christians also believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, foretold in the Old Testament and who came to redeem the sins of mankind.

Christianity also confesses that Jesus was born of a virgin, was condemned, crucified and put in a tomb, but on the third day of his death he rose again and ascended to heaven, where he sits at the right hand of the Father until the day of the Second Coming .

He is also believed to have performed a number of miracles, fulfilling biblical prophecies. In Islam, Jesus is known as Isa and is one of the most beloved and important prophets, the bearer of the divine scriptures and the Messiah. Although they accept the Immaculate Conception, Muslims do not believe in the crucifixion and divine origin of Jesus Christ. According to Islam, Jesus ascended alive to heaven.

The main source of information about the life and teachings of Christ are the four canonical gospels of the New Testament: from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Some biblical scholars and historians agree that Jesus was a Jewish preacher from Galilee, considered a healer, baptized by John the Baptist, accused of treason against the Roman Empire, and sentenced to death by crucifixion by order of the Roman procurator Pontius Pilate.

Since the Gospels were not written immediately after the death of Jesus, but between 40-60 years after his death, some scholars question their authenticity.

Only two gospels give information about the genealogy of Jesus Christ: that of Luke and that of Matthew. The Gospel of Matthew begins with the enumeration of the whole family of Christ, whose progenitor is Abraham, hence the Son of Abraham. The genealogical line begins with Adam and goes through King David, for which Jesus is also called the Son of David, and his origin is royal.

The family underwent the Babylonian resettlement and ended with Joseph – the adoptive father of Jesus Christ. All three lines (Abraham – David, David – Babylonian migration, Babylonian migration – Joseph) have fourteen families each.

Luke lists the genealogy of Christ in reverse order, beginning with Joseph and ending with the progenitor Adam. Fewer names are present in the genealogy of the apostle Luke. This is due to a division in the enumeration when the name of King David is mentioned.

Matthew’s genealogy continues with David’s son Solomon, and Luke’s chooses to follow the significantly shorter lineage of the king’s second son, Nathan.

St. Gregory the Theologian explains this difference with the complex personality of Jesus Christ, who was both king and bishop: from Solomon flowed the royal blood, and from Nathan – the blood of holy and light-bearing priests.

After the betrothal of Joseph and Mary, it turns out that the Mother of God is not empty of the Holy Spirit. Joseph intends to leave her secretly so as not to embarrass her. However, an Angel of the Lord visited him in a dream and explained to him that Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, who will be called Jesus, because he will save the people from their sins. Joseph fulfills everything the angel commanded him and does not know his wife until the birth of his son.

The son of God was born in Bethlehem, then the Roman province of Judea, ruled by King Herod. During his birth, a star appeared, marking the coming of the new king of the Jews. Several wise men from the east track her down and are taken to the place where the baby is. They bring gifts to the future ruler: gold, frankincense and myrrh.

King Herod, disturbed by the sign of a new king, issued an order to kill all newborn boys in the lands ruled by him.

Before the command, Joseph and Mary together with their newborn son fled to Egypt. There they remained until the death of the king of Judah. Returning to Bethlehem, they learn that Archelaus, son of the late Herod, is on the throne. The three settled in the city of Nazareth, Galilee.
