Easter Obituary

Jeruselem ~ OBITUARIES ~ 33 AD


Jesus Christ, 33, of Nazareth, died Friday on Mount Calvary (a place also known as Golgotha). He was betrayed by Judas, one of His apostles, Jesus was crucified by the Romans under order of the Ruler Pontius Pilate. The cause of death was 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 is survived by His mother Mary, His faithful Apostles, numerous disciples and many loving followers.

Jesus was self-educated and spent most of His adult life working as a teacher. Jesus may have also occasionally worked in the medical field, as it is reported that He healed many patients. Up until the time of his death, Jesus spent His time teaching and sharing the Good News of His Father, 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, as well as, healing a man who was born blind.

On the day before His death, He celebrated a Passover meal with His friends and asked them to preach His message throughout the world in remembrance of Him.

Upon His death, His body was quickly buried in a stone grave donated by Joseph of Arimathea, a loyal friend of the family. By order of Pontius Pilate, a boulder was rolled in front of His tomb and Roman soldiers were posted to stand 24-hour guard.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that everyone try to live by His teachings and that any donations be given to anyone that is in need of them.
