Life Of Jesus
Almost about 2000 years ago, an angel appeared to the vigil Mary and told her she was going to have a baby, and she was to name him Jesus. Jesus was born in a manger, and many people came to celebrate, three wise men brought gifts.
Jesus was raised as a Jew. He then became a religious teacher. He stressed the importance of the ten commandments, love and kindness, but mainly he said, " Love your neighbor, as you love yourself," and "Love the lord your god with all your heart, soul, and mind."
In about 33 A.D., people said he claimed to be the king of Jews and called himself the Messiah. He was arrested and charged with treason. He was nailed to the cross to die, once he died, his body was placed in a tomb with a large stone rolled in front of it. Three days later, people found that the stone was rolled away and his body was gone. His disciples knew that he had rose from the dead, into heaven.
