Let the Carols Begin

In the olden times Jewish priests were very wicked. Their holy book said that people should hate their enemies.

At that time a brilliant child was born in the family of a carpenter in the village Nazreth. His mother’s name was Mary.

When he was twelve years old his knowledge about God was more than the priests. At the age of twenty, he went in a jungle and kept fast for forty days and discovered the true path of life.

He returned home and began to teach people that one should shed hatred and love their enemies.
The most important lesson he taught to the people of the village was “Do to others only those things you would like them to do to you.”
He told the people that the world had grown wicked. But God is kind enough to forgive everyone who felt sorry for his mistake and confess them. He became very famous and thousands of people flocked to listen to him from far off places.
The priests of the Jews feared to lose their power so they began to hate Jesus and even started planning to kill him.
On their complaint Roman Governor told them that he had no reason to arrest him. The Jewish priests conspired and bribed Jesus’s friend Judas to capture him.
After capturing Jesus, they produced him before the Governor, he didn’t find any fault with Jesus. The Governor was compelled to order for his crucifixion as Jesus said nothing in his self defence.

Thus the lighting figure sacrificed his life for the sins of mankind.

Teachings of Jesus Christ - 

  • “You don’t have His word living in you, because you don’t believe the One He sent. You study the Scriptures because you think you have eternal life in them, yet they testify about Me. And you are not willing to come to Me so that you may have life.”
  • “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” 
  • “I have not come to condemn the world, but to save it.” 
  • “Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.”
  • “Love Your Enemies and Bless Those Who Persecute You”
