Contrary to many artistic renditions, Jesus appeared in the form of a rather plain looking man and is looked up to by Christians as the Lord and Saviour of the mankind, and has referred to himself as the King of The Jews on more than one occasion. He was born in a small village in Bethlehem around 0 A.D. where the historical biblical character King David was also from. Throughout Christ's ministry, many of Israel's most well known rulers and religious elite were offended with his authoritative and new approach to teaching scriptures that conflicted with their traditions. He taught that men should love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and that they ought to love their neighbors as themselves, which confliced with many Pharisees' views of law at the time. A very large church with many denominations was founded upon his teachings and has spread to just about every nation in the world.
Jesus Christ's coming announced by angels in the King James Version bible still read by many Christians today:
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
