Little is known of his early life, but around the age of 30, Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist and had a vision in which he received the blessing of God. After this event, he began a ministry of teaching, healing, and miracle-working. He spoke of the "kingdom of God," condemned religious hypocrites and interpreted the Mosaic law in new ways. He spoke before crowds of people, but also chose 12 disciples whom he taught privately. After just a few years, however, opposition mounted against Jesus, and he was ultimately executed by crucifixion by the Romans. The remainder of the first century AD saw the number of Jesus' followers, who were soon called "Christians," grow rapidly.
