Jesus Christ, an artist's depiction of typical attire and facial features of this man born in Bethlehem, living in Nazareth and preaching and teaching in that region from the age of 30 to about 33. He was crucified, died and was buried and Christians of that time witnessed and proclaimed to a true Resurrection (easter Sunday) and life for 40 days on earth until his Ascension. Christians proclaim that history to this day and believe that Jesus will return as promised.
