Jesus Christ (Year 1 - circa 30 AD), also known as Jesus of Nazareth, in Galilee is held by Christianity to be the Son of God and the awaited Messiah (or "Christ") prophesized in the Old Testament. He was put to death to death by crucifixion at the behest of the Elders of the Jewish people in their petition to the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate.
The New Testament commences with the birth of Christ.
Both the Julian and the Gregorian calendars in use by Europeans world-wide commence from the year of Christ's birth.
