Jesus Christ " Christianity central figure "
Jesus Christ
Jesus (/ˈdʒiːzəs/; Greek: Ἰησοῦς Iesous, Aramaic: ܝܫܘܥ‎ Isho; 7–2 BC to 30–33 AD), also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth, is the central figure of Christianity, whom the teachings of most Christian denominations hold to be the Son of God. 

Christianity regards Jesus as the awaited Messiah of the Old Testament and refers to him as Jesus Christ, a name that is also used in non-Christian contexts.

Contrary to popular belief, according to the Bible Jesus did indeed have both brothers and sisters.

 According all four Gospels, Jesus Christ was crucified by the Romans at Golgotha ("the place of a skull"), apparently a hillock outside Jerusalem. The physical location of any Golgotha is not known, and no extra-Biblical account recording the location of Jesus' death exists. The word "Calvary" does not appear until the Latin Vulgate translation.

Or half-siblings, depending on who one considers to be his father. See Matthew 13:55-57, "Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this man get all these things? And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, A prophet is not without honor except in his home town, and in his own household." See also the parallel verses in Mark 6:3-4. Some Catholics undergo contortions to assign these sons and daughters to another Mary, but in full context that is clearly impossible.
