Obituary For Jesus
CALVARY- Jesus Christ, 33, of Nazareth,
died today on Mount Calvary, also known as
Golgotha, the place of the skull. Betrayed by
the Apostle Judas and rejected by His own
people, Jesus was crucified by the Romans
under the orders of Governor Pontius Pilate.
Causes of death were crucifixion, extreme exhaustion,
severe torture and loss of blood.
A descendant of Abraham, Jesus
Christ was a member of the House of David.
He was the son of the late Joseph, a carpenter,
and Mary, His devoted Mother. Born in a
stable in Bethlehem, Judea, Jesus 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 is reported that He healed
thousands of patients.
Until the time of His death, Jesus was
teaching, preaching and sharing The Good
News, healing the sick, touching the lonely,
feeding the hungry, helping the poor and raising
Jesus was also noted for telling parables
about His Father’s Kingdom and performing
miracles amongst those who were suffering.
These signs included feeding thousands
of followers with only five loaves of
bread and two fish as well as restoring the eyesight
to a man born blind. On the day before
His death, Jesus held a Last Supper celebrating
the Passover Feast, at which He foretold
the end of His Earthly Ministry.
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 the tomb
and Roman soldiers were put on guard.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested
that everyone try to live as Jesus did:
by loving everyone- even enemies- unconditionally.
Donations may be sent to anyone in need.
