The Rabbi, Yeshua ben Yosef, is the most phenomenal and controversial Jewish person in history. His timeless messages of love, faith, charity, and mitzvot reveal a man who is uniquely and intimately connected to G-d.
The Rabbi was born just before the beginning of the Common Era, between 3-5 BCE during the Roman occupation of the Land of Israel. His parents, Miriyam bat Levi and Yosef ben David, were both poor but devout Jews. The Rabbi was born in the village of Beit Lechem in central Israel about 5 miles south of Jerusalem.
It is believed that the Rabbi was born in a feeding trough for cattle in a sukkah on the first day of Sukkot [the feast of tabernacles]. Although poor, the Rabbi's parents were very devout and brought the sacrifice to the Temple in Jerusalem on the very day his mother completed the time of her purification. Their poverty is known by the fact that they brought the two turtledoves which are permitted instead of the lamb and single turtledove which are preferred.
The Rabbi's family fled to Egypt shortly after he was born to avoid religious persecution. We have no reliable information about the early years of the Rabbi's life but it is believed that they lived in Egypt until he was about eleven or twelve years old. When he and his family returned to the Land, they settled in Netzeret in the north-central part of Israel. There is a story that is related about his visit to the Temple at the time of Passover when he was twelve. The sages and teachers were amazed at his understanding and his answers to their questions. His wisdom and understanding clearly began at an early age.
When he was thirty years old, the Rabbi chose twelve talmidim [disciples] and began teaching them his ways. Although he specifically chose the twelve, soon many thousands followed him... both physically and spiritually. His words and teachings were recorded in only a handful of letters which have faithfully been duplicated and shared for the past two thousand years. In those records, it is noted that his teaching was unlike anyone else of his day: his teaching had a power and authority that reflected his intimate relationship with G-d.
His work of teaching Torah was cut short by an untimely death at the hands of the Roman authorities. Because of his utter righteousness and holiness before G-d, He was resurrected bodily, remained for a brief time with his talmidim, and then, like Elijah, was taken up into heaven.
Many millions have followed his teachings and his words since that time. Although many factions and divisions have arisen among his followers in the intervening centuries, a small remnant of them have remained true to his teachings. It is only in the past century or so that the fullness of his teachings is once again coming to light.
