Christians celebrate Good Friday in Jerusalem

You may have heard this or something similar from a friend, co-worker or family member.

Visit Capernaum and the other first century villages of the Galilee region and you'll find synagogues instead of churches. And his death, unjust though it was, but for our salvation - you and me, young and old.

"So we must put and plants the crosses in the centre of all that concerns us and identify with the grace we have received of God", he said.

Of course, for us the most important time was the birth of Jesus Christ, which we celebrate in December during the Christmas season.

"I rejoice with our brothers and sisters of the Christian faith on this year's Easter". In the message Bishop Deshotel asks Christians to not only remember the events of Jesus' suffering but also rededicate themselves to the faith. Understanding our motivation may help. Still, if you have Orthodox Christian friends or visit a predominantly Orthodox country such as Greece and Russian Federation in late spring, you may find yourself celebrating a second Easter. Many members will have brought guests, and pastors want to be sure to preach a compelling sermon. But did you know Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River only a short walk from that community ... while the scrolls were being copied?

Clippers clinch No. 4 playoff seed with 115-95 rout of Kings
Their sense of urgency may never be greater. "We will play our regular rotation against Sacramento on Wednesday". The Clippers survived a combined 42 games without Griffin and Chris Paul, going 19-23 in their absence.

It works great, if not for one reality: the words of Jesus.

He said that Easter period calls for sober reflection and a complete show of love to humanity as exceptionally shown to mankind by Jesus Christ.

We need to have the mind of Christ in this perverse mixed up sinful world. Yes, Jesus had told them. Without his resurrection, there would be no Christianity; instead, we would simply be born, live, and die with no hope for eternal life.

These are the last earthly words of Jesus before his ascension. "We try to be friendly and engaging while still giving people space". We recommend that you give them a listen. But our creator has given us free will, free will to choose what we believe and what we think about.

Patmore says the opinion that the Via Dolorosa route is incorrect is not a controversial one, and that most people are intrigued when they are informed of the alternative route. I promise you this.

Champions League: Milestone-man Ronaldo secures Real's comeback win over Bayern
German number one Manuel Neuer could count himself unfortunate to finish on the losing side following some superb saves. But Bayern were outplayed in the second-half and most of Madrid's 23 shots on goal came after the break.

Admittedly, some Christians have been intolerant at times throughout history, seeking conversions through unethical means. There are many things that can be believed about Jesus. That, a lot of them would not allow.

To this end, the 2016 flag bearer of the Progressive People's Party (PPP) urged leaders of the country to be doers as Jesus Christ was as they celebrate the Easter festivities.

So, please don't be offended. How could they have been so misguided?

But Easter is the day when God defeated death.
