follow the teachings of and about Yeshua of Nazareth, commonly
referred to as Jesus Christ. (Jesus is the Greek form of
Yeshua; Christ is Greek for "the Messiah" or the
"anointed one.") Yeshua was a Jewish itinerant
preacher who was born circa 4 to 7 BCE. He was executed
by the Roman occupying authorities in Palestine, perhaps
on Friday, 30-APR-7 CE (i.e. in the spring of the year 30).
Most Christians regard him as the son of God. They further
believe that he is God, the second person in the Trinity.
(The Trinity consists of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
three separate persons, all eternal, all omnipresent, who
form a single, unified deity.) Most Christians believe that
Jesus co-existed with God before the creation of the world,
was born of a virgin, was resurrected three days after his
death, and later ascended to Heaven.

Jews are often referred to as G-d's chosen people. This
does not mean that they are in any way to be considered
superior to other groups. Biblical verses such as Exodus
19:5 simply imply that G-d has selected Israel to receive
and study the Torah, to worship G-d only, to rest on
the Sabbath, and to celebrate the festivals. Jews were
not chosen to be better that others; they were simply
selected to receive more difficult responsibilities,
and more onerous punishment if they fail.
