Most Christian denominations venerate him as God the Son incarnated and believe that he rose from the dead after being crucified. The principal sources of information regarding Jesus are the four canonical gospels , and most critical scholars find them, at least the Synoptic Gospels , useful for reconstructing Jesus life and teachings.Some scholars believe apocryphal texts such as the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel according to the Hebrews are also relevant. Most critical historians agree that Jesus was a Jew who was regarded as a teacher and healer , that he was baptized by John the Baptist , and was crucified in Jerusalem on the orders of the Roman Prefect Judaea , Pontius Pilate , on the charge of sedition against the Roman Empire. Critical Biblical scholars and historians have offered competing descriptions of Jesus as a self-described Messiah , as the leader of an apocalyptic movement, as an itinerant sage, as a charismatic healer, and as the founder of an independent religious movement. Most contemporary scholars of the Historical Jesus consider him to have been an independent, charismatic founder of a Jewish restoration movement, anticipating an imminent apocalypse. Other prominent scholars, however, contend that Jesus' " Kingdom of God " meant radical personal and social transformation instead of a future apocalypse.
Christians traditionally believe that Jesus was born of a virgin. Founded the Church , rose from the dead , and ascended into heaven. From which he will return. Most Christian scholars today present Jesus as the awaited Messiah promised in the Old Testament and as God, arguing that he fulfilled many Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament.
The majority of Christians worship Jesus as the incarnation of God the Son, one of three divine persons of a reject Trinitarianism Trinity , wholly or partly, believing it to be non-scriptural. Constantine X Doukas or Ducas Greek., (1006 May, 1067) was emperor of the Byzantine Empire from 1059 to 1067. Constantine Doukas was the son of Andronikos Doukas, a Paphlagonian nobleman who may have served as governor of the theme of Moesia. Constantine gained influence after he married, as his second wife, Eudokia Makrembolitissa , the niece of Patriarch Michael Keroularios. In 1057, Constantine supported the usurpation of Isaac I Komnenos , but gradually sided with the court bureaucracy against the new emperor's reforms. In spite of this tacit opposition, Constantine was chosen as successor by the ailing Isaac in November, 1059, under the influence of Michael Psellos.
Constantine X Doukas was crowned emperor. The new emperor quickly associated two of his young sons in power, appointed his brother John Doukas as kaisar (Caesar) and embarked on a policy favorable to the interests of the court bureaucracy and the church. Severely undercutting the training and financial support for the armed forces, Constantine X fatally weakened Byzantine defences (by disbanding the Armenian local militia of 50,000 men) at a crucial point of time, coinciding with the westward advance of the Seljuk Turks and their Turcoman allies.
Constantine lost most of Byzantine Italy to the Normans under Robert Guiscard , except for the territory around Bari , though a resurgence of interest in retaining Apulia occurred under his watch and he appointed at least four catepans of Italy : Miriarch , Maruli , Sirianus , and Mabrica. He also suffered invasions from Alp Arslan in Asia Minor in 1064 and the Uzes in the Balkans in 1065. Already old and unhealthy when he came to power, he died on. And was succeeded by his young sons under the regency of their mother Eudokia Makrembolitissa.
