Perhaps the single most famous person in history, Jesus is a superstar of religion.
He is not only the founder of Christianity, but also an important figure in Judaism and Islam.
This engaging summary of his life and legacy presents the historical figure of Jesus as a religious leader, and details the significance of his life and death in different religious traditions.
Students will be introduced to the concepts of resurrection and the Holy Trinity that make Jesus so special for Christians, while also learning about the different roles that the Islamic and Jewish tradition have assigned him.
You could ask your students to discuss the concept of the Holy Trinity.
In groups, students could compare and contrast the different roles that Jesus has been assigned in Christianity, Islam and Judaism, and discuss why that might be the case.
Students could then talk about the concept of Messiah in Judaism and Christianity.
