Jesus Christ


Jesus Christ, 33, of Nazareth, died Friday on Mount Calvary, also known as Golgotha, the place of the skull.

Betrayed by the Apostle Judas, Jesus was crucified by the Romans, by order of the ruler Pontius Pilate. The causes of death were crucifixion, extreme exhaustion, severe torture and loss of blood.

Jesus Christ, a descendant of Abraham, was a member of the House of David. He was the son of the late Joseph, a carpenter of Nazareth, and Mary, his devoted mother. Jesus was born in a stable in the city of Bethlehem, Judea.

He was survived by his mother, Mary; his faithful apostles; numerous disciples and many other followers. Jesus was self-educated and spent most of his adult life working as a teacher. Jesus also occasionally worked as a medical doctor. It is reported that he healed many patients. Up until the time of his death, Jesus was teaching and sharing the Good News, healing the sick, touching the lonely, feeding the hungry and helping the poor.

Jesus was most noted for telling parables about his father’s Kingdom and performing miracles, such as feeding more than 5,000 people with only five loaves of bread and two fish, and healing a man who was born blind.

His body was quickly buried in a stone grave, which was donated by Joseph of Arimathea, a loyal friend of the family.

By order of Pontius Pilate, a boulder was rolled in front of the tomb. Roman soldiers were put on guard. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that everyone try to live as Jesus did. Donations may be sent to anyone in need.

Easter services celebrating the life and ministry of Jesus were held Sunday, April 21, 2019, as they are held every year in remembrance. Ministers throughout Gasconade and Franklin Counties report a morning of resurrecting faith.
