Q:

Why is Jesus a hero?

A:

Jesus, of Nazareth, Israel, is considered a hero by his followers because he was a martyr for the Christian religion. Jesus gained popularity throughout his life as a young minister; he was celebrated for delivering people from personal struggles and performing legendary miracles. Although Jesus had a productive ministry, there were many who did not agree with his teachings.

The divine conception of Jesus Christ was predicted by the prophet Isaiah about 700 years before it occurred. In the Bible, Isaiah 7:14 states that “The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive and will bear a son, and she will call his name Immanuel.” The birth of Jesus was the birth of the most unique person in history, according to Bibles for America. Jesus devoted his life to ministering new teachings about religion. Throughout his lift, Jesus gained a large following of people who accepted him as the son of God. However, there were many that strongly disagreed with Jesus and saw his teachings as a conflict of interest for other religious and political efforts. At the age of 33, Jesus was crucified and buried. His alleged resurrection from the dead is the basis of Christianity. His followers recognize his death as a sacrifice, as he died as an offering in exchange for the sins of humanity. Jesus is often referred to as a sacrificial lamb throughout the Bible. Easter is celebrated to honor the resurrection of Jesus.
