Tiberius Julius Caesar Augustus
The emperor of Rome when Jesus was crucified was Tiberius, whose full name was Tiberius Julius Caesar Augustus, although his original name was Tiberius Claudius Nero. Marcus Pontius Pilatus was the governor, or prefect, of Judaea, who gave the order for the crucifixion.
When Jesus was born, Caesar Augustus was the emperor of Rome. He was the adopted son of Julius Caesar, and he ruled as the emperor of Rome for 45 years. The word "Augustus" means "the exalted". Caesar was not a follower of Christianity, and believed himself to be a god.
Tiberius was Emperor of Rome from 14 to 37 AD. Fourteen was the first year of his reign. Jesus of Nazareth was crucified in either 30 or 33 AD.
On November 30, we observe the Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, the first disciple to be called by Jesus. Though we know more about his brother Peter, it was Andrew who first met Jesus.
Answer and Explanation: Jesus was born in the Roman Empire, more specifically in the province of Judea around the year 4 BCE. Augustus was the Roman emperor at the time of Jesus' birth.
When the people answered that it was Caesar's, Jesus said, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God, the things that are God's" (Matthew 22:21). This saying of Jesus was a response to the attempt to discredit him by the Pharisees and Herodians.
They showed Jesus a gold coin and said to him, "The Roman emperor's people demand taxes from us." He said to them, "Give the emperor what belongs to the emperor, give God what belongs to God, and give me what is mine."

Roman-controlled Judea was subject to many internal political disputes between competing sects. It was in this climate that Jesus Christ emerged amongst other radical preachers as a potentially dangerous rebel. Jesus Christ was probably born sometime between 4-6 BC, slightly earlier than the date set by the Church.
Aramaic is best known as the language Jesus spoke. It is a Semitic language originating in the middle Euphrates. In 800-600 BC it spread from there to Syria and Mesopotamia. The oldest preserved inscriptions are from this period and written in Old Aramaic.
Note that Jesus is called the first-born, not the first-created. The word “first-born” (Greek word “prototokos”) signifies priority. In the culture of the Bible times, the first-born was not necessarily the oldest child. First-born referred not to birth order but to rank.

Jesus was arrested on a charge of treason and was crucified, a common form of execution for condemned criminals. To the Romans, Jesus was a troublemaker who had got his just desserts.
Additional Roman texts reference Jesus.
Some scholars also believe Roman historian Suetonius references Jesus in noting that Emperor Claudius had expelled Jews from Rome who “were making constant disturbances at the instigation of Chrestus.”
"Render unto Caesar" is the beginning of a phrase attributed to Jesus in the synoptic gospels, which reads in full, "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's" (Ἀπόδοτε οὖν τὰ Καίσαρος Καίσαρι καὶ τὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ τῷ Θεῷ).
At the time of Jesus, Palestine (the Holy Land) was still part of the Roman Empire, and Roman law and customs were being imposed on the Jewish people. The Jews didn't like the Romans and there was always a great deal of tension between them. The Roman Emperor was called Caesar.
Earlier Jesus told his listeners, “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's.” —Matthew 22:21 (NASB). Jesus was clearly teaching obedience to the Roman laws and also to obey God's laws.
In addition to Aramaic and Hebrew, Greek and Latin were also common in Jesus' time. After Alexander the Great's conquest of Mesopotamia and the rest of the Persian Empire in the fourth century B.C., Greek supplanted other tongues as the official language in much of the region.
Jesus is the ultimate firstborn (a title applied to him by Paul). The gospel authors never refer directly to Jesus as God's firstborn, but they do refer to him as the Son of God, a title that connects to the theme of the firstborn.
