Jesus was born to Mary and God between the years 5 and 4 B.C.,during Herod's reign as king. Joseph, the man who was engaged to Mary, had considered breaking off the engagement when he found out that Mary was pregnant. But an angel of God appeared to Joseph in a dream and explained to him that Mary was impregnated by God and was still a virgin so Joseph went through with the marriage. The angel also told Joseph to call the baby Jesus. Because of the census called by the Roman governor Pilate, Joseph and his wife Mary had to travel back to Joseph's home town of Bethlehem in Judea. When they arrived there, the inns were full and Mary's time had come. The only available lodging was an empty stall in a stable, a manger. And so, right there and then, Jesus was brought unto this world.John the Baptist was the son of Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth, a relative of the Virgin Mary. Both Zechariah and Elizabeth belonged to the order Abijah. One day in church the angel Gabriel appeared to Zechariah and said, "Your wife will have a child and he is to be named John." He was born in 5 B.C. John the Baptist preached the Good News everywhere he traveled and baptized people (the Good News is that those who believe and love God and his son Jesus and who do not sin, will live eternally in Heaven). When Jesus finally meets with John, who has also been announcing Jesus' arrival, he tells John to baptize him in the Jordan river. As soon as Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus in the form of a dove and a voice was heard saying, "This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased."Right after that Jesus went off into the desert for forty days. This is where Jesus is tempted by Satan. The first temptation was food: Satan asks Jesus, "If you are God's Son, order these stones to turn into bread." Jesus replies, "The scripture says, 'Man cannot live on bread alone, but needs every word that God speaks.'" The second temptation was a test of faith, "If you are God's Son, throw yourself down (from the highest point of the temple in Jerusalem), for the scripture says,'God will give orders to his angels about you;they will hold you up with their,so that not even your feet will be hurt on the stones.'"Jesus replies, "But the scripture also says, 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'" The third temptation was of power, "All this (the kingdoms of the world) I will give you, if you kneel down and worship me (Satan)." Jesus says, "Go away, Satan! The scripture says, 'Worship the Lord your God and serve only him!'"When Jesus entered Jerusalem, he was on a colt that had never been ridden before. Cloaks were thrown over the colts back to make a improvised saddle and the cloaks of the crowd were thrown down onto the ground ahead of Jesus. The Garden of Gethsemane is the place where Jesus asks God to take away the "cup of suffering." Judas comes with roman soldiers and temple guards and Jesus is arrested. Simon Peter cuts off an ear of the High Priest's slave. Jesus...
