Jesus Christ is one of the important religious figures of Christianity, part of the holy trinity, and a pillar of the Christian faith for whom Christians base their attitudes and actions on. Jesus also holds reverence as a prophet in Islam. According to a combination of Christian and historic sources, Jesus of Nazareth was conceived from a virgin birth and was appointed as a messiah. Jesus traveled and spread the word of his new religion, which beliefs split from traditional Judaism. During this journey, he performed several miracles such as healing the sick, walking on water, and turning water into wine.
His actions were not appreciated by all, and the Romans controlling the region captured him. Under orders from Pontius Pilate, he was crucified. Miraculously, Jesus performed one more miracle and resurrected. He is an important figure in the Western world and his birthday is celebrated as Christmas, and resurrection as Easter. The life of Jesus is recorded in the New Testament of the Bible. During the 1990's and 2000's, a popular phrase, What Would Jesus Do, was worn by Christians as a reminder to live life with kindness and love like Jesus had preached about. Many Christians are proud to wear and display symbols of their faith.
