Who is Jesus?

Well, Christians believe that he is the son of God. Aside from that title, he also goes by Messiah, Christ, Lamb of God, so on.

He was born of a virgin named Mary, with the help of the Holy Spirit. He supposedly performed miracles and is accredited for founding the Christian Church.

Jesus was crucified and died on the cross, a symbol that has become paramount to the faith. In fact, most churches feature at least one. Often Jesus is portrayed as visibly tortured and wearing a crown of thornes. One wonders how the recurring exposure to such a thing impacts the developing minds of children and young adults.
