It is Finished
The Messiah Has Come. 40 AD
In the Beginning
Jesus of Nazareth was born during the reign of the emperor Augustus. It has been found that Jesus was born of a virgin birth, as prophesied. Although His mother, Mary, was engaged to Joseph, it was the Holy Spirit that created a child within the virgin. Jesus was born on a cold Winter's night on the outskirts of a little town called Bethlehem. Mary and Joseph could not find a place to stay while traveling because the inns were full, so Jesus was born in stable. The Son of the Most High was wrapped in swaddling clothes and was put in a manger.
Mary and Joseph
This is a photo of Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem. Because Mary was with child, she rode atop a donkey while they traveled.

Jesus died on the cross on Golgotha after being tortured and suffocated to death. It was very interesting because at the moment Jesus died, a large cloud came across the town and put the town in total darkness. Jesus' body was placed inside of a tomb with a large rock rolled in front.
This photo is of Jesus talking with the Pharisees. The Pharisees were the people that didn't believe Jesus was the true Messiah.

He Has Risen
Jesus has now descended up to His and our Heavenly Father. He is now sitting on the right hand of the throne and is still there to comfort and direct our lives. Although we miss Jesus greatly, He has promised to come back one day with God the Father. He has promised to take all who believe in Him to Heaven to spend the rest of eternity with our Lord and Savior. Although this day is unknown, we know that this day will come because Jesus has and will always keep His promises.
