Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ was the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary. He was born on December 25, AD 00. After 30 years of existing and not really doing anything very important, he began preaching and converting thousands of followers. He made miracles, such as walking on water during a storm. At age 33, he was convicted of false worship and sentenced to death on the cross. After being crucified on the cross, he was buried, but then resurrected. After a while, he ascended into heaven.

He did not have a Facebook account, Twitter account, email account, phone number, or website, nor does he have a address, but since he died there , let's put it at that.
