Christian views of Jesus are based on the teachings and beliefs outlined in the Canonical gospels, New Testament letters, and the Christian creeds. These outline the key beliefs held by Christians about Jesus, including his divinity, humanity, and earthly life. The second sentence in the ICET version of the Nicene Creed states: "We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God...". In the New Testament Jesus indicates that he is the Son of God by calling God his father.
The historicity of Jesus refers to the analysis of historical data to determine if Jesus existed as a historical figure, approximately where and when he lived, and if any of the major milestones in his life, such as his method of death, can be confirmed as historical events. In contrast, the study of the historical Jesus goes beyond the question of his historicity and attempts to reconstruct portraits of his life and teachings, based on methods such as biblical criticism of gospel texts and the history of first century Judea.
A definition of Christianity
Catholicism: the Catholic Church is the largest Christian religion, and the pope is the spiritual leader. It is called "Catholic", that is to say universal, as it has everywhere the same doctrine, "Roman" for the pope lives in Rome the Vatican and "apostolic" because the pope is the successor of the apostles, the apostle Peter was considered the first Pope. Unlike Protestantism which brings the Christian faith to the Scriptures alone, the Catholic Church sees itself as the sole heir and custodian of the teachings of Jesus, transmitted orally and in writing. Any discrepancy with the dogma and therefore the universal nature of Catholicism creates a heresy (eg Arianism, Cathars) or schism (Orthodox, Protestant).
Monotheistic religion centered on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament. The Christian faith is essentially faith in Jesus as the Christ (or Messiah), the Son of God, the Savior, and, according to Trinitarianism, God the Son, part of the Trinity with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.
