Jerusalem Obituaries – 33 AD


March 29, 2010 by Joseph Krohn

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 descendent 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 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.


One thought on “Jerusalem Obituaries – 33 AD

  1. Joseph says:

    To the lady that asked: “How could you say that Jesus died on Friday – its more like Wednesday or Thursday?”

    Three days in the tomb? What does that mean?

    1) Jesus was crucified on the day before the Jewish Sabbath, which is Saturday – therefore it must be Friday evening that He died.

    2) Three days, does not necessarily mean three twenty-four hour periods. He was in the tomb part of Friday, all day Saturday and part of Sunday – that equals three days in the tomb. (i.e. if you were to say that you worked three days last week, you do not mean that you worked three twenty-four hour periods).

    3) I believe that you will find, that the Greek word for day, does not necessarily mean twenty-four hour periods, but also parts of a day.
