Jesus Christ, father of the Christians, credited with a miraculous conception, was born in circa 6-4 B.C. without a father. His advent was universally acknowledged as a turning point in history. The Western world adopted his birth that marked the beginning of the solar calendar.
Both in the Gospels and in the Qur'an, he is referred to as the Messiah (The Anointed One), as well as Logos (The Word of God). His ancestry is traced back to Isaac, son of Abraham. His mother Mary is believed to have descended from an old-established family; namely the family of Amram. Jesus Christ had become a prophet very early in life and his prophethood lasted five years. « Jesus, when he began his ministry was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph » (Luke 3/23). According to certain scholars, he never married; and to others, he married Mary of Magdala, who bore him a son. Jesus transmitted all the revelations he received from above by word of mouth. None of his prophetic inspirations was taken down. His departure from this world took place circa 30-33 A.D..
