Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, 33, of Nazareth, died Friday on Mount Calvary, also known as Golgotha, the place of the skull. Betrayed by one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Jesus was crucified by the Romans by order of the ruler Pontius Pilate. The causes of death were crucifixion, extreme exhaustion, severe torture, loss of blood, and a love for his followers. Jesus Christ, a descendent 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. Survivors include his mother, Mary; four half-brothers, James, Joses, Simon, and Judas; faithful apostles, numerous disciples, and millions of followers. Jesus was self-educated and spent most of his adult life working as a teacher. Jesus occasionally worked as a medical doctor and it is reported that he healed many patients.
