Christians' convictions about Jesus are situated in sacred writing and other authentic antiquities and records. Since few of these different reports contain data about Jesus, most learning originates from the Christian Scriptures. As noticed, the four Gospels recount the narrative of Jesus' life and service, while whatever is left of the Christian Scriptures incorporates letters composed by the missionary Paul and others from the primary ages ofChristianity. These archives depict the early groups' confidence in the message of Jesus' service and how they spread this message.

The Christian Scriptures report that there was no agreement about jesus' identity amid his human lifetime, even among the individuals who knew him. Albeit, notwithstanding amid his service, his supporters are at times depicted as trusting he was the Messiah and the child of God, other individuals thought he was a prophet or just an incredible educator. In a progressive procedure that started amid Jesus' service and proceeded for a long time after his demise and revival, his devotees came to trust that he was the child of God. The slow advancement of this conviction is apparent in the Christian Scriptures and other verifiable reports that portray the love practices of early Christian people group. As noticed, the most punctual Christians were Jews who kept on having confidence in their monotheistic God. These Christians recalled and attempted to comprehend Jesus' guarantee, recorded in the Gospels, that he would keep on being with them notwithstanding when they could never again observe him, and that he would send his soul to them also. Step by step, through much supplication, love, and exchange, Christians came to trust that God was currently with them in three unmistakable ways: the "Father" or God of the Hebrew Scriptures, Jesus the Son, and the Spirit.

Hundreds of years go before Christians authoritatively concluded that they could trust that Jesus was divine without yielding their confidence in one God. How could this be? At the considerable gatherings of Nicaea, Chalcedon, and past, Christians established that Jesus was both completely human and completely divine. They contended that no one but God could spare people, yet just a human should pay the obligation owed to God for wrongdoing. Along these lines, they came to trust that Jesus encountered the totality of human presence—including birth, life, and passing—yet was additionally divine. Christians regard Jesus' mom Mary as the "Mother of God" since she brought forth God's own particular child. Christians trust that God ended up human in Jesus to give access to God's elegance, and Christians see Jesus as the perfect individual, the full disclosure of God's arrangement for mankind. On account of their confidence in Jesus, Christians trust that God is with them, cherishes them and spares them from wrongdoing and demise, and will raise them to interminable life. At last, Jesus' synchronous godlikeness and mankind is a secret that Christians admit in confidence, despite the fact that they can't completely clarify it.

Christians likewise trust that Jesus conveys God's absolution of wrongdoing to humankind. Christians call this "salvation" or "penance." "Salvation" implies that transgression is taken away and individuals are accommodated with God. While all Christians trust that Jesus achieved this, no accord has been come to among Christians about how precisely he did as such, as the sacred writings portray it in different ways. For instance, "penance" as a rule alludes particularly to the conviction that it was Jesus' passing on the cross that refined the taking without end of sins; the cross along these lines symbolizes both human blame and God's benevolence. Notwithstanding, a few Christians question "compensation religious philosophy" in light of the fact that it depicts God as an unfeeling and flippant parent, sentencing a youngster to an appalling demise. These Christians want to underline Jesus' instructing and mending service as accommodating individuals with God and consider Jesus' demise a catastrophe executed by wicked individuals, not planned by God. Notwithstanding these distinctions, all Christians trust that through Jesus, God spares them from wrongdoing and guarantees them unceasing life.
