Known for: Caesar Augustus (63 BC – 14 AD) was the first Roman emperor and one of the most successful. He reigned for 45 years and was ruling at the time of Jesus Christ’s birth.
Chances are he had no idea. Jesus was probably born between 6 BC and 4 BC, while Augustus died in AD 14. As someone else has written, Augustus died in 14 AD, when Jesus would have been around 19 or 20 years old — so it’s highly unlikely that Augustus would have known of Him.
Many of these involve Pilate acting in ways that offended the religious sensibilities of the Jews.

Over time, the Christian church and faith grew more organized. In 313 AD, the Emperor Constantine issued the Edict of Milan , which accepted Christianity: 10 years later, it had become the official religion of the Roman Empire.
The Gospel of Luke states that Mary gave birth to Jesus and placed him in a manger “because there was no place for them in the inn”. Luke 1:26–27 states that Mary originally lived in Nazareth at the time of the Annunciation, before the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.
The title of Caesar stems from an actual person, Julius Caesar , Dictator of Rome . Caesar’s adopted son became the first Emperor of Rome and kept
