Bio of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ, born in 1 BC / 1 AD lived for 33 years in the province of Judea under the rule of the Roman Empire at a time of turmoil. (He did not live in Palestine as this was the name given to the territory by the British in 1918 when it belonged to the British Empire nearly two millennia later). He was crucified for being the Messiah. But He rose from the dead. He established the New Covenant between God and mankind. Then He returned to His place in heaven. He fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament. The Church was His legacy. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Jesus given to all of His followers. He is reputed as being the most famous person who has ever lived and being the Son of God.

Psalm of Lament

How long will it be Lord? Don’t You see me day after day, week after week at my computer? I pour out my life as the hours and hours at the keyboard go by. I am weary.
