Jesus most often refers to Jesus of Nazareth (7–2 BC/BCE – 26–36 AD/CE), also known as Jesus Christ, the central figure of Christianity, revered by most, but not all, Christian churches as the son of God, or God manifest in the flesh. The history of Jesus Christ is contained in four books or gospels; outside these there is no reliable narrative of his life. Jesus, in Hebrew is Yeshua, which means Salvation, and Christ means, Messiah, or Promised One.

Islam considers Jesus a prophet, Judaism rejects the claim that Jesus is the Messiah foretold in the Hebrew Bible. Some Christian religions do not believe Jesus was God manifest in the flesh but the son of God by spiritual accord with God, and doing only his bidding. You can look up specific religions in the blogosphere and find the dogma they ascribe to, by typing the word Christian religions, or just religions, in the search bar of a search engine.

Jesus, or Jesus Christ, is also a commonly used expletive. Not technically blasphemous it is considered, by those who are Christian, as taking the Lord's name in vain, something The Third Commandment frowns upon.
