HAD AN OBITUARY
I received the following in an email from my friend Lois.
I thought it might be inspirational for anyone who takes the time to read it.
I hope that you find encouragement within these words to help you stay on God's narrow path.
Jesus Christ, 33, of Nazareth, died Friday on Mount Calvary,
also known as Golgotha, the place of the skull. Betrayed by
the apostle Judas, Jesus was crucified by the Romans, by order
of the Ruler 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. 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 Carpenter and a Teacher. Jesus also occasionally
worked as a Medical Doctor and it is reported that he healed
many patients. Up until the time of His death, Jesus was
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. Roman soldiers were put on guard.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that everyone
try to live as Jesus did. Donations may be sent to anyone in need.
