He looked like an ordinary man...
...but he had amazing powers.
In the years following, his fame spread.
He gained quite a following...
...and gathered around him a group of learned companions.
He walked on water...
...and many other amazing feats...
...more impressive than the Roman gods.
But most important, he preached a message of love.
Not everyone loved him, however.
The powers-that-be were annoyed...
...and kept a close eye on him...
...and his unusual ways.
Following his last supper,
...almost everyone turned against him.
Even his close friends betrayed him.
The Romans pursued him...
...and finally got him in the end.
Although he could have defied them,
...he accepted that his fate was sealed.
They marched him up a hill.
The decree was death...
...and they killed him.
He rose up in three days.
He was back!
He ascended to be alongside his father and spirit.
Today, many tales are told of him...
Sadly, much violence is done "in his name."
But those who truly know him, know that he taught us to stand against evil,
To be kind to our brothers,
And most important, he taught us to love.
