    A Christian by its very nature means a follower of Christ so yes Jesus was a Christian.

      Indeed he was Jewish. He said he had come to fulfil the prophets (the Jewish prophets, in the Old Testament), not to destroy them. The word "Christian" was not used among the new communities of Jewish and other followers of him until many years after Jesus died.

    The Prophet Jesus (prayer and salvation of God on him) was a Muslim.

      You would need to explain how a Jew from the tribe of Judah in the lineage of King David could be a Muslim.

    Jesus was The Christ - the foretold Messiah.

    He established the promised New Covenant, in His shed blood, and on the night before He submitted to crucifixion, He invited His followers to enter into that "covenant for a kingdom" - Luke 22:20. They became Christians by putting all their faith in Christ and following Him. Christ did not put faith in Himself and start following Himself.

    As to His human nature, He was Jewish (via His Jewish mother, Mary). As to His divine nature, He is God - the Word who was in the beginning with God, who IS God, and who made everything that was made. John 1:1-14. That Word incarnated, becoming flesh. God is not a Christian. God is over and above everything in existence and He is the one who established Christianity as a continuation of His covenant dealings with sinful humanity.

    You are seriously asking if Jesus was a follower of Himself?? Yes, He was born Jewish. The Jewish people were the chosen people of God, chosen for one purpose, to be the people through whom the Messiah, the Savior of humanity, would come into the world. Jesus fulfilled that purpose, ending the reason for the existence of Judaism.

      Jesus defined what a Christian is many times - one who remains in his word John 13:34, is not of the world and makes his Father's name known John 17:6,16 26, one who does the works that he does, John 14:12, one who puts faith in him as the Christ and only begotten Son John 3:16, John 20:31.

    Jesus was ultimately put to death for "heresy and blasphemy against the Jewish religion". Jesus' stance on the Trinity is really what got him put to death because he proclaimed he was the Son of God, second person of the Trinity. Jews do not believe in a Trinity. So while Jesus was an ethnic Jew he believed in Christian theology. You could say he was the living bridge between Judaism and Christianity, the messiah

      He never even used the word "trinity" - he believed that God is one - no "persons" Mark 12:29

  • Jesus Christ was born Jewish in the line of David, lived according to the Law as a Jew, fulfilled the Law as a Jew, and died. The Way he established with his followers as taught from his Father became the Christian Religion.

      He is 100% correct about the line of King David. You may want to work on your reading skills. Mary was born via two different Jewish tribes.
