Jesus, also known as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ, is the central figure of Christianity, most of the adherents of which worship him as the Messiah, son of God, and God incarnate. In Islam, Jesus (called Isa) is one of God's most beloved and important prophets.
耶稣（希腊语：Ιησούς Χριστός，公元前6年至公元6年–约公元30年)，也有人称他为拿撒勒人耶稣或是耶稣基督，是基督教教义的中心人物（在基督教中，也拼写为耶稣基督Iēsous Christos）。多数追随者将他敬为（圣经旧约中的）受膏者“默西亚/弥赛亚Mashiah”（Mashiah为希伯来文，圣经中通常是以希腊文Christos来代替希伯来文的Mashiah，而这些名称指的是将要来临的救世者。中文译名方面，罗马天主教根据希腊文译作“基利斯督”，而基督新教只取首末两个字），神之子和神的肉身。在伊斯兰教（也叫清真教）中，耶稣（被称作伊撒）是上帝最深爱和最重要的信徒。
The main sources concerning the life and teachings of Jesus are the four canonical gospels from the New Testament, which depict Jesus as (among other things) a Galilean rabbi, healer, and performer of other miracles, who was often at odds with Jewish religious authorities, and was crucified outside of Jerusalem during the rule of the Roman prefect Pontius Pilate. The degree to which the gospels convey reliable historical information about Jesus is disputed, and all other known sources provide limited corroboration. Nevertheless, the majority of scholars do agree that Jesus did, at least, exist。
The chronology of Jesus' life is uncertain, as the gospels mainly describe the events immediately prior to his crucifixion and no dates are known. The Anno Domini system of reckoning years was originally based on setting year 1 as the first full year of Jesus' life. However, based on the mention of Herod the Great in the gospel of Matthew, more-recent estimates place Jesus' birth as early as 8 BC/BCE, and as late as 4 BC/BCE. Based on the years of Pilate's rule, Jesus' death is now estimated to have taken place between 26 AD/CE and 36 AD/CE.
Beyond the historical information accepted by most secular scholars, the gospels make various additional claims about Jesus, for instance that he was the messiah prophesied in the Old Testament (or Hebrew Bible); that he was God, and the son of God; that his mother Mary was a virgin; and that after his crucifixion he rose from the dead, then ascended into heaven. Numerous miracles and other supernatural events are attested.
For Christians, Jesus is God who came to earth as a historical person to save mankind. His life and teachings are remembered by most Christians in church services, as well as through the Christian liturgical calendar (including holidays such as Christmas and Easter).
For Muslims, Jesus is one of the major prophets of Islam, a bringer of divine scripture, and also the Messiah — although they attach a different meaning to this term than Christians, as they do not share the Christian belief in the divinity of Jesus (see Isa for further detail on the Islamic view of Jesus).
