  1. Jesus Christ (
      "The Gospels of Matthew and Luke contain narratives of Jesus' birth and infancy, which disagree in many points but concur in asserting that he was the miraculously conceived son of Mary, the wife of Joseph, and that he was born at Bethlehem in Judaea." 02-06

  2. Jesus Christ (The Columbia Encyclopedia)
      "The primary sources for Jesus' life and teaching are the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John (see articles on the individual books, e.g., Matthew, Gospel according to), though these are not biographies but theologically framed accounts of the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus, i.e., of the basic subject matter of Christian preaching and teaching. Other books of the New Testament add few further details. Among non-Christian writers of antiquity, Tacitus, Suetonius, and Pliny the Younger refer to Jesus, as does Josephus (Joseph ben Matthias) in at least one passage. The 2d-century Gospel of Thomas sheds light on the development of the tradition of Jesus' sayings." 02-06

  3. Jesus the Nazarene (
      "Jesus, Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus the Nazarene (8-4 BC/BCE 29-36 AD/CE)[1], is the central figure of Christianity, in which context he is known as Jesus Christ (from Greek) with 'Christ' being a title meaning 'Anointed One' or 'Messiah'. The main sources regarding Jesus' life and teachings are the four canonical Gospels of the New Testament which are generally agreed to have been written decades after his death." 02-06

  1. For More Teens, Jesus is "Cool" (ABC News)
      " 'It goes back to the roots of Christianity how to make faith relevant within the context of capitalism,' said Lynn Schofield-Clark, an assistant research professor at the University of Colorado's School of Journalism and Mass Communication who studies youth culture, marketing and religion."

      "Chanon Ross is a youth minister in Naperville, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, who recently wrote an article called 'Jesus Is Not Cool.' He says that all the focus on fun and games waters down the real message and hard work of following a faith." 10-05

  2. Gospels (
      "In Christianity, Gospels are a genre of Early Christian literature essentially concerning the message and meaning of Jesus. Each of the four canonic gospels reveals the 'Good News' about Christ's life and presence embedded in a narrative of Jesus Christ's life." 01-06

  3. Jesus (
      "Jesus, also known as Jesus Christ*, Jesus of Nazareth, and Jesus the Nazarene, is the central figure in Christianity." 01-06
