Jesus Christ, age 33
Jesus Christ, of Nazareth, went to be with our Lord, 33 AD on Mount Calvary, also known as Golgotha, the place of the skull. Betrayed by the Apostle Judas, Jesus was crucified at the hands of the Romans, by order of the ruler, Pontius Pilate. Beaten, tortured and nailed to the cross, Jesus died of loss of blood and suffocation.
He was born in a stable in the city of Bethlehem, to the parents of Joseph, a carpenter and Mary, a virgin. He was a descendent of Abraham and a member of the House of David.
Jesus was well educated and spent most of his adult life working as a teacher. Occasionally He also 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 known for telling parables about His Father’s Kingdom and performing miracles.
His 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 and soldiers were put on guard. But even so, reports are that the body of Jesus Christ was raised from the dead three days later.
A Community Memorial Service will be held at First United Methodist Church on Friday, April 3, 2015 at 12:15 pm, to honor, celebrate and remember the life Jesus Christ lived and how He calls us to live. The church is located at 200 Pleasant Street, downtown Sturgis. The service is sponsored by the Sturgis Ministerial Association.
