Jerusalem OBITUARIES 33 A.D.
Jesus Christ, 33, of Nazareth, died Friday on Mount Calvary, also known as Golgotha, the place of the skull. Betrayed by His friend Judas, Jesus was crucified by the Romans by order of governor 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. He also claimed to be the Son of God, the promised Messiah, statements used by the Sanhedrin to accuse and condemn Him in a secret trial.

Jesus was born in a stable in the city of Bethlehem, Judea. He is 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 and it’s reported that He healed many patients.

Up until the time of His death, Jesus was actively 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 over 5,000 people with only five loaves of bread and two fish, and healing a man who was born blind.

On the day before His death He held a Last Supper celebrating the Passover Feast, at which He foretold His death. The 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. At the request of the Sanhedrin, a regiment of Roman soldiers was placed on guard!

It has been reported by the Sanhedrin and confirmed by Roman troops, in a brief press relief, that the body of Jesus has been stolen by His disciples. Many witnesses affirm that Angels appeared at the tomb and that Jesus resurrected from the dead.

We have interviewed a few of His close followers and personal friends and they have assured us that they have personally seen Him, conversed with Him and even eaten with Him. They all firmly attest that He is Alive again!

WHICH DO YOU BELIEVE?

If you're not sure that you've met this Man who was dead and is now alive, why not seek Him out? Just ask Him to make Himself real to you. He says, "Behold, I stand at the door [of your heart] and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him”
(Revelation 3:20).

Invite Him in by simply praying:

"Thank You, Jesus, for loving me enough to die for me, so I can live forever with You and our Father. I open my heart now and receive You as my Savior." Now you can celebrate the victory of Easter!
